A funny thing happened…

Thursday, October 25th, 2012 @ 10:58 pm | Politics

Sadly, I’ve landed back in Iowa yet this is precisely what has steered me away from the site. I kind of liked the sudden mysterious cut-off, but basically I’m neck deep in real-person stuff and, well, in an age where one of our best presidents is in a near draw with one of the greatest frauds to ever run for office (or pair of frauds, counting Paul Ryan), what is there to say except this: You’re either on board for giving Obama a real presidency beyond cleaning up the mess that Bush and the Republicans handed him, or you’re down with rewarding those who responded to the worst fiscal crisis in eighty years by focusing all their efforts on destroying the president.

It’s exactly that clear. So what else is there to say? Romney is a proven, serial liar who ran as a hard right Republican until the first debate with Obama, and his unbelievable propensity to lie is only further darkened by the fact that when we got a chance to observe him speak behind closed doors, he burst with contempt for the majority of Americans. Yes, he lies because he thinks you’re stupid.

So are you stupid? Or are you one of the scammers? If not, vote Obama. It’s exactly that clear. This is certainly as close to an existential crisis as our nation has ever faced.

My absence has never meant to downplay the importance of this election. It’s more important than ever. But my voice is needed elsewhere, and so I will join the millions who speak very loudly on November 6th to uphold America’s fundamental decency. Heaven help the lost and corrupted souls of those who would do otherwise.

    For the record, I’m spending Election Day volunteering for the group against the constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage in Minnesota. I’m going to be poll-watching, wielding my lawyerly skills to make sure no NO vote goes uncounted.

    Take that, bigots!
