This is the stupidest thing I’ve read on the internets today:
If I lived in
ArizonaNevada and had the vote, even though Sharron Angle is beyond nuts, I’d vote for her. Better nuts than this disgusting, cynical, partisan Washington kabuki dance, when people’s lives and dignity are at stake.
I’m not a fan of Harry Reid either but how do you advance the cause of gay rights by replacing a Senator who supports repealing DADT with a Senator who would likely enact anti-sodomy laws given her druthers?
This kind of reasoning is nearly always stupid, e.g. “at least with Bush, you know where he stands”. People don’t talk this way about things other than politics. No one says “better a quack than all this medical kabuki” or “better Barry Switzer than all that West Coast offense mumbo jumbo”.
If you want to have good government, you do it by voting for sane candidates whose positions you agree with, not by supporting nuts in order to make some ridiculous point about an imperfect system.
