This morning, as I was on my way to work, I listened to a talk show where Carol Mosley-Braun stated she was announcing her bid for the Presidency for 2004. I groaned. *****? Then the radio host asked her if it was possible that she would run with AL SHARPTON as her running mate. My head almost exploded. What is wrong with everyone???? So I've decided to compose a cyber letter to the head of the Democratic Party. It's time, because I am really getting pissed off with this stupidity.
Dear Head of the Democratic Party:
Could you and the other people in this party get your head out of your asses and come to a concensus on a candidate for 2004?
No, Al Sharpton is NOT a viable candidate. No, Carol Mosley-Braun is not a viable candidate. No, Joseph Lieberman is not a viable candidate. Let's just cut to the chase: ANY candidate who is a minority or jewish is NOT A VIABLE CANDIDATE. I'm sorry, but it's the cold hard truth.
America is NOT READY for anything other than a middle-aged Protestant white male with a wife and 2.5 kids with absolutely no history of sexual antics in office and a "clean" bloodline. Yeah, yeah, I know you hate to hear that but the FACT is you blew it in 2000 and you're about to blow it again in 2004.
It's time to stop taking the minority votes for granted. The old adage that minorities vote democrat because it's the party of inclusion and diversity is outdated.
It's time to stop banging the drum of tolerance because it's becoming increasingly clear that the Republicans are capable of tolerance also.
Sure, the Trent Lott/Strom Thurmond thing raised all of the old underlying fears of why voting Republican may not be in the best interest of the poor, women, and minorities. But, again, you should not assume. You have just as many skeleton's in the closet with klan symbols as others. Have you cleaned out your closet also?
Get your act together. Get some strong candidates that will appeal to the public AS A WHOLE. TALK to your constituents. Tell Al Sharpton to ****, tell the others thanks but no thanks, we appreciate the sentiment but it's time to get to work. If not, the party will continually grow in becoming a joke.
I know. Let the flames begin. I can take it.
