Do Dems convert to Bushbots in booth?
"Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain" The Wizard of Oz
Despite loony left conspirator enthusiasts, Ohio has finally been conceded by c-BS. Yep, Bush actually won that election, despite the debate Senator Kerry seems to be having with himself.
What never added up was the inconsistency of the exit polls. Early returns from Ohio foretold a Kerry massacre. Yet we still address GWB as Mr. President.
How could this be?
Here's the answer.
It depends on what the meaning of the word "vote" is
Democrat/liberal/supposed Bush haters lied to the pollsters. Once the curtain was drawn, in the privacy of the booth, they voted their true conscious, or maybe just their hidden capitalistic avarice. But when the exit questions came, they fibbed like the true Clintonites they are. Maybe they parsed responses as meaningless gestures as long as they gave lip service to the cause.
Examples are rife within my own family. My cousins from Chicago, Michael and Susan (not their real names) are both double PhDs. Susan runs a college and Michael is a famous psychiatrist, and tenured English Lit Professor. They're great people and I love them, but are so liberal; they think Howard Dean is right wing. They travel hundreds of miles in their tinny tangerine gas efficient Volvo to stay a day or two at my house every year on their way to vacation in New Mexico, just to demolish their conservative Cuz, me.
My odds are low facing these two Mensa Mafiosi. When I asked Susan just what it was that made her hate Bush, she said, "He's stupid." When I asked how she knew this, her response was, "Everyone knows this," with an upward roll of her eyeballs.
Mike and I go round and round on abortion. Finally, I attained a small victory when I convinced him of the obvious evil of late term abortion.
Then, after I subdued his Lib loquaciousness with an amazingly potent merlot, he fessed up. Seems, as a businessman/psychiatrist he liked Bush's tax cuts. No, he didn't admit voting for Dubya, but indicated that it was a possibility. Without benefit of merlot buzz, or friendly confines of a relative's home, do you think Dr. Mike would admit to voting Republican to a pimple faced innocent Democratic youth Bush hater?
Could Susan have followed suit after Mike talked to her of their impending financial windfall? To her, admitting to voting for the "brain-dead" Bush would be tantamount to opposing the NEA in public.
"Can't we all just get along?" Rodney King
Then there's my Cousin, Ted, also a Chicagoan. He's of a mind that we can talk with al-Qeada, feel their pain, show sensitivity, and Walla; we can all hold hands around the campfire and sing Kumbaya.
Any chance he got, he blasted Bush…that is, until Hezbollah, started lobbing ball baring Katushas into Israeli civilian areas. The worm turned on this issue. Guess he saw the run and cut Democrats as pulling the plug on our only trustworthy ally in the Middle East.
He could have voted for Bush, had he sensed this in 2004. Admit it? Not in the name of Lenin, not even Putin! He now fills my e-mail with tough anti-terrorist, anti Islamofacist essays.
Teddy has turned.
You can't build a legacy sitting on the fence
When you're in the voting confines on November 7th, or in future elections, remember the Clintonese efforts to play hide and seek with history.
Anyone with an open mind, watching the hubris Clinton and his cronies raised over the Disney/ABC 9/11 presentation, had to wonder what he was so distressed about. After watching it, one can only speculate why he wanted to bring more attention to his administrations' irrefutable lameness. Terrorists attacked us time after time after time during his scandal ridden 8 years as president. His response ranged from nothing to ridiculous.
The house of mouse outted Clinton and the Democrats for the horrible position they left our country in.
Aussies are taking revenge on innocent stingrays for the one that attacked and killed Steve Irwin the crocodile man, killing at least 10 so far. No conspiracy or cooperation was alleged amongst the Ray Clan to murder Irwin.
Knowing Bubba's track record, if I were Mickey and Minnie, I'd apply for the Witness Protection Program…especially Minnie.
Moral of the story? Listen to advice; vote your conscious.
