Come on, vote already Pennsylvania!!

So it’s Primary day again.  This time it’s the great state of Pennsylvania and I must say, I can’t wait for it to be over.   I’m really growing weary of all of the fighting and bickering.  

What worries me most about this especially vicious primary season is that with all of the name calling and nastiness, will the Democratic party ever really be able to come back together once it’s over?   I’m a listener of progressive talk radio (NovaM) and it seems that our party is more divided than ever.  Followers of either candidate regularly call in and state how they “will stay home and not vote at all” if the opposing candidate gets the nomination.  This is not how we take back America!  This is how we allow “George W. Bush II — the McCain Years” to become the most hellish sequel ever known.  This cannot happen. 

I understand that you have a favored “horse” in the race.  That’s great.  I have a preferred candidate too, however, if my candidate does not get the nomination I am not going to “take my toys and go home”.  I am going to take a deep breath and put all of my fervor and passion into getting that candidate elected president.  Saying that you aren’t going to vote, or, god-forbid, saying that you will vote for McCain rather than your chosen Democrat is not only stupid, it’s just plain bad for America.  In a land where all the media seems to care about is whether a candidate wears a Chinese-made flag pin, we need to band together and take back our country.  We can’t do that if all we have is in-fighting within our own party.  So let’s get this damn primary season over with so we can start concentrating on beating McCain.

Who’s with me?

    I’m with you!

    What I find almost painfully ironic about this whole business is that we liberals are known to go into spasms of self-congratulation because we’re so doggone open-minded. We can appreciate both sides of an argument, we can understand the point of view of the minority, we can evaluate public policy on the basis of reasonability and not reach snap judgments on the basis of ideological rigor.

    But in the next breath, we say “If Obama wins, I’m voting for McCain! If Clinton wins, I’m voting for Nader! If Nader wins, I’m going to Finland!”

    There’s your open-minded, reasonable liberalism for you. There’s your “big tent” for you, a phrase now so laughable it pains me to utter it. I don’t get it. What happened to reasonability, to compromise, to the essential and inevitable give-and-take that is what really makes a republic function? Now it’s “I don’t like her clothes, they’re FRUMPY, and if she wins I’m voting for Martin Bormann!”

    Are we really so egotistical, shallow and stupid as to think think that John McCain is preferable to Clinton or Obama? I fear so. I predict disaster. No, let me rephrase that – I dread a coming disaster, but I don’t want to predict it. Yet.

    Sorry to drone!

    How about we send Hillary and Obama into a timeout until they can behave and put up a Gore/Edwards ticket in the meantime?
