1st, he was right about FLA.
then in ’04, so smug. “oh I ain’t gonna lose!”
They barely even need to rig the vote this time.
First – the Dems have proved that they won’t change anything anyway.
Second – a white man will always win over a woman or a black man.
Stay where you are, kids – it’s not time to go back to The Amerika yet.
And the thing is that that’s really what I think. I think it’s great that the Democratic primaries are down to a black man and a woman – that at least we have come that far. But I also think that the Democrats are shooting themselves in the foot. I honestly don’t think that enough people in The Amerika will vote for a woman or a black man over a white man. That is to say that some people will vote for McCain even in spite of their Democratic leanings because his opponent’s colour or sex is not the correct one for the leader of our country.
Many of those people will lie to their friends about who they voted for. And many others will admit to voting for McCain, but will deny any charges of racism or sexism. And in many of their minds, it really won’t be racism or sexism. After all, some of their best friends are black… But the person that represents The Amerika, the leader of the free world forgodsake, needs to have a certain image. That image has never been of colour and it has never worn a skirt.
Anyone who believes that political change is just around the corner is going to be bitterly disappointed once again.
