First of all, I most heartily apologize for the overly sincere, non-smirky/smarmy posts that have been happening lately. I don’t know what that’s about, but it always embarrasses me.
Second, this site has a sort-of helpful quiz that purports to help you decide who to vote for. It asks you questions about the major issues then tells you how all the candidates match up with your values. I found it very useful, except that Green candidates were not included!
At any rate, my top three candidates were “Theoretical Ideal Candidate,” Kucinich, and Obama. Go, Theoretical Ideal Candidate! Hillary was a distant 7th, after Biden, Wesley Clark, and Christopher Dodd (they rather helpfully include candidates who are not running/have dropped out, which is how I found out that Steven Colbert – swoon – comes in dead last for me).
Third, I thought of this terribly misogynist slogan the other day, and I can’t keep myself from sharing it. First I need to say that using slang for women’s genitals as derogatory remarks is most certainly NOT OK in my book, as it equates ladyparts with ickiness and that is fucked.
But! Is “don’t vote for a pussy just because she has a pussy” the best Hillary slogan EVER, kind of, or what? Let’s pretend that it’s a very complex slogan that is simultaneously very much anti using “pussy” as a derogative term while playing on its common pejorative use among douche bags (and I’ve talked about how it’s OK for feminists to use “douche bag” as an insult before, so no need to go into that again – basically it’s because douching is for douches), OK?
