thanks to pauraque
for pointing me toward this hilarious-yet-disturbing livejournal poll
most people on lj seem to vote for kerry because he is the lesser of two evils. it is always that way with career politicians. but let me be a completely ridiculous liberal looney democrat and point out that not only is kerry more articulate than george w. bush, he takes a stand, publically, on national television, on big issues like abortion, gay rights, and the iraq war. sure his economic policy may seem a little confusing, but its tough to know exactly what the economy is going to do, and its even tougher to man-handle said economy to make it the best economy for all citizens. i think john kerry has, in these three debates, shown that he is at least sensitive enough to care about the people of the united states if he's president, and by the people of the united states, i mean everyone, not just the wealthiest groups who contribute to his campaign. okay, so he's smarmy. he's a well-trained politician who has been working in washington for most of my lifetime. and he looks kind of silly sometimes. i would rather vote for herman munster than a sock monkey.
on the subject of the poll, my favorite quote from it: "Kerry is pro-choice and doesn't want to amend the Constitution to serve his own religious beliefs. Plus, Edwards is a cutie."
EDWARDS IS A CUTIE!!!!!!!!!!!! edwards will be the perfect VP: he's sweet, funny, intelligent, genuine, gentlemanly, considerate, not-a-scary-old-man, and photogenic. what else does one need in a veep? haliburton? i think not, my friends.
and on a third side, i would like to offer everyone a viable, global alternative to the green party: the united states' chapter of the world socialism organization
