Now That It's Ending

May 14, 2008

On the end of this campaign, and the start of the real one. Partly inspired by this post. May return to that thought later.

I agree with you. I'm sure some will be schmucks though. I can just see my brother a staunch Obama supporter highstepping all around the house.

I agree, respect and a level playing field is what we need right now.

You're absolutely right!
But... GO OBAMA!

This has nothing to do with your current video post. I was a big (and became a diehard fan) of your remix version of "chocolate rain" with radiohead. Can you please take a look at his new version produced by the makers of doctor pepper and tell the people what you think. Myself I am personally disgusted at the 360 turn his music took. I was shocked to say the least at the what I looking at on my computer.

Ok I agree with all your points here and I am in the same boat with you. having said that, is it possible that we can get back to hip hop for a while?

Is nothing happening in hip hop that's even remotely interesting? Suge Knight getting knocked the fuck out? no? nothing?...

Maybe there's a place for you in the Obama campaign. Your words of wisdom are valuable in these turbulent times.

Big ups to Yiddish name calling!

Reminds me of what Congressman John Conyers, Jr., a key Obama supporter, said regarding the best way to end this: "Here’s how we close this thing down early. We are going to be real nice to anybody who did not support Sen. Obama. Real nice. Super nice. It’s the most difficult thing one can do in the political system: Beat the crap out of your opponent, and then be nice and friendly after you do it."

I do agree Obama supporters shouldn't be schmucks at this point. McCain is already throwing crap at Obama, so Obama's campaign needs to regroup and respond right away.

Just one nitpick, Gore still got more popular votes than Bush in 2000 despite Nader. It always bothers me when people don't remember that.

Oh, uhhh... oops? :)

Actually, I'm one of those guys that voted Nadar in 2000. I live in a red state, and my vote is discarded almost immediately after I press the button. If Gore's message during the election was anything like his message after the election, I might have voted for him. Of course, my vote still would have been immediately discarded, sooo...

So, you still make a good point anyway, Jay. My vote might not count (thanks Electoral College!), but for those of you who have the opportunity to make a difference, do it.

Jay Smooth, I love you.

2 points:

1. As far as I remember the Gore people never said the votes for Nader were stolen. The stolen votes were the old jewish ladies who had their votes counted for notorious anti-semite Pat Buchanan because of the butterfly ballot, the people who had the same name as ex-felons and were denied the right to vote, and the votes that went uncounted because of hanging chads and other abnormalities. Those people were legitimately disenfranchised.

2. What CRJ174 said "Actually, I'm one of those guys that voted Nadar in 2000. I live in a red state, and my vote is discarded almost immediately after I press the button. If Gore's message during the election was anything like his message after the election, I might have voted for him. Of course, my vote still would have been immediately discarded, sooo..."

This was exactly why I, too, voted for Nader in 2000. Nader's pitch was that he needed 5% of the vote to qualify his party for federal matching funds in the next election cycle, I was trying to help. We failed.

Yes! Exactly

1. I can recall lots of people placing some blame for Gore's loss on Nader's votes, for example when Michael Moore and Al Gore were both on Al Franken, and Franken made Moore apologize to Gore for messing him up by supporting Nader..

2. Yes, I was one of those Nader voters in 2000 as well, although Nader's commitment to building a third party has turned out to be kinda dubious since then..

That point about working for our votes makes very good sense. I don't like being taken for granted by people that are supposed to represent me.
