I don't know about anyone else, but I am bloody sick and tired of polls. They are all over the damned place. Today the AP is reporting that Romney has "erased" Obama's lead with women. How can this be true?
Let me be real clear here, any woman that stands with this lying, pandering, vote whoring hump deserves what she gets. Any woman who thinks there is nothing to the reports of misogyny and disregard for the rights and health of women in the Romney/Ryan position had best read Mr. Ryan’s record and the Republican platform – realizing that Romney hasn’t the backbone or moral fiber to go against the fanatics in his party if he is elected. Any woman who doesn’t comprehend that a Romney Administration will appoint one or two anti-choice Supreme Court Justices needs to pull her head out of her shoe closet and grow the hell up. Any woman who doesn’t understand that the tenets of the Religious Right’s psychotic world view will subsequently become part and parcel of a state sponsor religion by fiat needs to spend less time applying cosmetics to the outside of her head and more time introducing knowledge to the inside.
Bible thumping, politically deaf, dumb and blind sheeple aside, these vile men, these rotten politicians care less for the God to whom they pay nothing more than lip service then they care for women. They will be relegating all women, their daughters and granddaughters to the status of an incubator. A fertilized ovum will have more rights than the mother. The hollow religion these monsters proclaim is but the corner stone of an economic trap. Once caught in this filth what is left of the Middle Class will be starved and beaten into poverty. There it will stay with more children then can reasonably be feed, more debt than can possibly be paid and less economic advantage then can ever be imagined today. Any woman who doesn’t realize or care that as a practical matter all this means that we go back to the alleys, coat hangers and criminals with dirty hands and dull knives should find herself in such a position and welcome.
Today I am angry. Women of my generation did not take to the streets forty-odd years ago, get hit in the head with riot batons and thrown in jail to set women free so that the most important election of our collective reality, the most important vote since the ratification of the 19th Amendment can be ceded to the barbarians by a gaggle of blundering, ill informed Stepford Wives in a handful of states.
My husband tells me that the polls are a joke as are the pundits, most of the commentators and all talking heads grinding a partisan axe. However, he follows Nat Silver’s political and statistical blog compulsively. Below is a link. Some of this stuff is pretty dense; however take a look at the right hand column. Mr. Silver has been projecting President Obama’s victory by electoral vote since the race began. It has gone up and down, but never put the Republicans in the lead. If Mr. Silver is right, and he was only off by a small percentage of a point in ’08 and ‘10, then perhaps for the first time in four years the lowest common denominator, the bullies and the fools among us will not be calling the shots.
