THEY think you are an illusion.

Really.

Go look at any of the right-wing pools-of-cess -- Little Green Blueballs... Redstate Of Denial... the Free-Of-Any-Need-To-Hide-Our-Unmitigated-Hatred-Of-Non-White-Non-Heterosexual-Non-Christians Republic -- and you'll see the real "last gasps" of the insurgency...

  1. YOU don't exist ("NO ONE I KNOW will vote for Obambi")
  1. IF YOU exist, you won't show up to vote. ("The polls are all wrong because they're all HEAVILY weighted towards the Democrats and that's not going to happen".)
  1. If YOU DO SHOW UP, you won't ever make it to the ballot box.

And this last one is their big, pathetic, repressed, wet dream.

All ginned-up hope for an McCain victory lies in the slim, BUT STILL REAL, possibility that the crush of an historic election will cause the "unlikely" likely voters to be overwhelmed by four hour waits and lines that snake into increasingly inclement weather.

THEY think, we'll go home.

To the "youth vote"... THEY think you are lazy and undisciplined and distractable.

Prove them wrong.

Stay. The. Fuck. In. Line.

To the "African-American vote"... THEY think you are lazy and undisciplined and easy to intimidate.

Prove them wrong.

Stay. The. Fuck. In. Line.

To the "Jewish vote"... THEY think you are stupid and old and terrified of middle names.

Prove them wrong.

Stay. The. Fuck. In. Line.

To the "Latino vote"... THEY think you are racist and too busy picking their lettuce for $50 and hour.

Prove them wrong.

Stay. The. Fuck. In. Line.

To the "Hillary vote"...  THEY think you can't tell a uterus from a policy position.

Prove them wrong.

Stay. The. Fuck. In. Line.

To the "Gay vote"... many of THEM wish THEY were you, but that's another rant.

Stay the fuck in line and don't settle for a provisional ballot unless you ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO.

Provisional ballots WILL NOT be counted on election night and therefore will not be part of the "winner" narrative and since you did stay the fuck in line lets get your vote the fuck counted now.

WE have the right and stamina to finish what we started and WE can hear Lady McBeth whispering in our ears, "But screw your courage to the sticking-place, and we'll not fail." (which is lofty, not-real-American edujewmicated, Shakespeare for STAY THE FUCK IN LINE!)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
