i have come to a couple of decisions this morning- upon having finished one cuppa. i am not going to post anymore on the democratic primaries- or either candidate after today. most of the primaries have been completed- and i have already voted. but i am going to have this final post because i have made up my mind to leave the democratic party for good. why? because it isn't any difference than the rethuglican party- and the people in it are just as stupid. yes- i said stupid. and shortsighted- and all of those things bz and ren have been talking about for such a long time.
the clincher- camp clinton. i have zero respect for hillary clinton anymore and even if she does win the primary- by hook or by crook- or racist overtones- she won't have my vote. of that- i am certain. she has decided that she is going to play by karl rove's playbook and the feminists and right wing of the dem party are right there with her. i could be wrong but i don't believe obama has had a free pass by the press. when clinton was leading- it was all about her. i don't believe obama has used the gender card against hillary- but he has called her on her 'experience'- and i don't believe i have heard him breathe a word about her religion. or her husband's peccadillos. or really much dirt at all. he has manipulated the issues and enhanced his own record but hasn't climbed into the cesspool with clinton.
so- i won't vote for hillary- i won't vote at all for president if necessary. and i shan't be writing anymore about it. if you can't see the clinton campaign's dirty, unnecessary tactics are tearing apart the party- and leaving a big hole for the rethuglicans to drive through- then you are stupid. and i won't be a part of that kind of party.

addendum #2- gop voting for clinton- wake up clinton supporters
"It's as simple as, I don't think McCain can beat Obama if Obama is the Democratic choice," said Kyle Britt, 49, a Republican-leaning independent from Huntsville, Texas, who voted for Clinton in the March 4 primary. "I do believe Hillary can mobilize enough [anti-Clinton] people to keep her out of office."
