Election Selection

by on April 12, 2012

In 2008 at the end of a year-and-a-half primary season “the Democratic Party had a tough decision to make.”   I stood by my television (one of the few times I have ever felt the urge to do so) – indeed, I rushed home from classes – as the primary convened, and made it through days one, two, and three without any definite outcome.
I was, for no other explicable reason than having made a choice, a supporter of Hilary. As she stood and made her speech yielding years (perhaps decades) of her hopes to a younger, more inspirational, rival; giving him, not just in action but in word, her pledged delegates, and doing so with a good spirit. I knew, as did Hilary, that with either candidate

we would profoundly change the world for the better. And that we did. At the same time, over in the Republican camp, that party was trying to decide if you could see Russia from Sarah Palin’s kitchen window.

This year the Republicans have another tough decision to make as well. Will they decide that Mormonism is a cult or will they decide that women who use birth control are sluts? It’s a tough call. But either way we will profoundly change the definition of just how stupid is stupid. God Bless America.
