  •  that might be (5+ / 0-)

    the biggest leap of imagination I've ever seen and I find it perverse that you would make that analogy.
    The entire republican apparatus doesn't give a rats ass about the average person and yet there are millions who would vote for the very people who make it their business to fuck them over, and in the mean time, fuck me over too. Shabby treatment? Boo fucking hoo.

    •  Again I have to agree (5+ / 0-)

      that's a ridiculous analogy. A person who is raped is a victim who has no choice. This women chose to vote for McCain, a well-known asshole who treats pretty much everyone like shit. Now she's surprised and hurt over who he turned out to be? Sorry but anyone voting for McCain at this point has no excuse for not knowing that he's a total jerk who doesn't care about anything and is running a totally inept campaign same as he would run a totally inept government.

      She had a choice in this, and she chose wrong. Experiencing the consequences may suck for her, but it was the consequences of a freely chosen action, nothing whatsoever like a rape victim, and I really don't feel sorry for her either.

    •  The lack of choice (0+ / 0-)

      is being thrown out of a rally with no real reason. That's the "rape" part. Choosing to vote for McCain doesn't warrant being thrown out any more than choosing to wear a tight skirt warrants being raped.

      Some women make bad choices that can lead to rape. Do they "deserve" it? No.

      This women made a disatrous choice in whom to vote for President. Does she deserve public humiliation and to be treated as an outcast by her own Party? No.

      Sorry that you don't have the empathy to see the parallels here.

      •  I have plenty of empathy (0+ / 0-)

        and screw you for trying to equate "my lack of empathy" with your ridiculous analogy. Sometime after you say some dumb shit you should just be quiet for awhile.
