"She cries on TV and that gets her 6000 votes! You got to be shitting me"
That was a text I got yesterday from my friend Corey.
As I was driving home last night I was tuned into NPR listening to New Hampshire coverage. The news was mostly focused on the somewhat surprising win Hillary achieved in the "live free or die" state. Speculating on the rise in poll numbers many analysts and campaign officials were talking about how women in large numbers turned out to give their support for the fairer sexed candidate.
One woman from the Clinton camp came on the line to voice her opinion as to why people should vote for her boss. She stated matter of factly that this country needs a woman president. I started shouting in my car "this country doesn't need a woman president. This country needs a good president you dumb friggin hack. Look now's the time to make up for the horse shit we've been putting up with the last eight....."
It was then I realized how much of a dumb ass I must've looked like to the people in the car next to me.
I wanted to run home and pickle my liver with a horrendous amount of booze. I used to say I respected why people voted for someone. I take that back. If you vote based on gender, race, religion, or anything other than issues and qualifications you're a jack ass of the highest order. Disagree with me and I may crown you the king or queen of all that is jackassery. Hate me for saying that? Well go right ahead your majesty.
