F the Vote

Want to find a creative way to keep GWB II from his court-appointed second term? How about screwing him out of office? The good folks at, are proposing just that. They are encouraging liberally minded left-wingers to boff conservatives in exchange for a signed agreement that said conservative will vote for anyone except GWB.

Sure it's ridiculous. But he kicked off the hilarity by stuffing his nutsack into that flightsuit.


God forbid any Presidential candidate who tries to have a little fun on the campaign trail. So what if his nutsack was stuffed into a flightsuit. Are you now going to make fun of astronauts?

Speaking of signed agreements. The following is a letter written to a Springfield, Mo. newspaper by a reader named Gary Tetrick

"How many Ozarkers were aware that a public profession of loyalty to George W. Bush was a requirement to gain admission to his July 30 speech in Springfield? Being an independent voter, I was under the illusion that Bush-Cheney had targeted like-minded individuals as the key to victory in a close Missouri election.

Stepping into Republican headquarters to procure my required ticket, I was transformed to the days of Joseph McCarthy and his loyalty tests. Two questions were asked requiring a yes answer to obtain a ticket: 1. Do you believe the president is doing a good job? 2. Will you support and vote for the president?

I felt like a reluctant Berliner in 1940, saluting my Fuhrer to gain inclusion. I can honestly answer yes to this question: Should Bush be given a one-way ticket to Crawford, Texas?"

Yo, hombre! We're sprechen sie the same lingety! I'm talking about GWB stuffing his nutsack into that flightsuit in the laughable, even when it was remotely plausible, "Mission Accomplished" fiasco.

But, since you brought up the Cheney Loyalty Oath: this was a campaign rally. It's standard procedure to corral dissenters in today's image-retarded political world. Only last week, the Dems herded dissenters into a holding pen underneath a highway. You didn't see them handing out convention passes to the Black Tea Society so that they could protest during Kerry's speech.

Once and again, I feel compelled to point out that comparing ANYONE, let alone a one-term American President, to Adolf Hitler is so sophomoric as to be shameful.


You caught me off guard there, bro. Wrong nutsack. When you wrote that, I was picturing Kerry in his yellow NASA suit. While laughable, I certainly will cut him some slack for that. After all, he does need to appear affable and loose. It's just something that you have to go through during an election year.

Yeah, but it is so simplistic it's offensive?

Yes, it is simplistic to such an extreme that it is offensive to the millions of people who were affected by Hitler. [When you really parse it out, there's no one on the face of the earth who wasn't affected by Hitler.]

When you're in the eighth grade, drawing the anarchy symbol on your book covers, it makes sense to equate any smothering authority with someone like Hitler. But even the most cursory study of Hitler and the Third Reich should put that analogy to bed for life.

Hitler exterminated 12 million people in such an efficient mechanism of genocide and general psychopathy that it has no precedent in history. Even Stalin, who was the bigger brute by far, never matched Hitler's taste for exterminations by quota.

Sure, there have been other genocides, and other ruthless dictators, and each year brings a new atrocity which flies in the face of the mantra of "never again". Which is precisely why comparing the Darfur crisis to Auschwitz, let alone GWB II to Hitler, is more than a lazy, simplistic comparison. Hitler was unique in every way, and he remains difficult to fathom.

But the basic human tendency to wipe out with extreme prejudice another group of people is not at all difficult to fathom. It is, unfortunately, as common as the change in the seasons, and almost as reliable. If we could focus on such primitive incursions into genocide as happen every year in every corner of the world, we could make progress towards unlearning this ancient behaviour. But if we, instead, wring our hands and argue in a committee about how much General Bashir is like Hitler, we will continually fail to act, which is an offense to all of us.

I hardly leave a response, but i did some searching and wound up here "F the Vote".

And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you usually do not mind.
Is it just me or does it appear like some of the remarks look
as if they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on other places, I would like
to keep up with anything new you have to post. Would you make a list of every one of your shared pages
like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
