Memo To Democrats From PhysioProf
May 7, 2008
So it looks like even more likely now that Obama will win the nomination, although I guess there is some non-zero chance that Clinton could somehow pull something off. Regardless, it will soon be time to focus on the general election. This has been a very hotly contested primary, and there are a lot of short tempers and tense feelings. Well, it is now time for all Democrats—regardless of Democratic candidate preference—to settle the fuck down!
Do not forget that you are a member of a political fucking party! The entire purpose of a political party is for its members to collectively pool their political influence for the purpose of gaining power!! This means that sometimes you have to put your influence—votes, campaign efforts, donations—behind a candidate who is not your first choice!
However, if you are a loyal member of a party you do this anyway! It’s what political parties are for! You don’t get to pick and choose which general election candidates you will support, and you don’t get to have litmus tests!!
If you consider yourself a Democrat, and you believe that the Democratic Party is the best possibility for steering our country away from the edge of the cliff that we may, unfortunately, have already plummeted over, then you must support the nominee!!! To do otherwise is to play right the fuck into into the hands of the sick-fuck theocratic wackaloon neo-confederate right-wing feudal oligarchy.
This is not fucking negotiable! Any fucking questions!?
