I read much of that long clusterfuck of a thread at LGM about Ralph Nader (who–I’ll say up front–I have come to loathe).
I’ve always appreciated the fact that Obama has a chorus of naysayers incessantly coming at him from the left. Frankly, he needs that. Until we get a truly full-throatedly liberal president in office, all our presidents will NEED THAT.
But when does useful needling from the left turn into kooky talk? I mean, I’m sorry, but Obama’s the best we’ve fucking got right now. He’s FAR from perfect, but he’s the best we’ve got. Jill Stein will not be our next president. Ralph Nader will not be our next president. Gary Johnson will not be our next president. So WHAT THE FUCK AM I SUPPOSED TO DO? Well, I’ll tell you what I am going to do, I’m going to vote for Obama unapologetically. Because letting Romney get into the White House is unthinkable to me. I’d sooner move to Planet Hotpokersupthebumstein.
