“I have been voting since I was 18 years old. I have voted in enough elections to know….YOU DON’T ALWAYS VOTE FOR THE ULTIMATE WINNER OF THE ELECTION.
It feels good to vote for the winner. For the person you thought should win DOES win.
But, no, you don’t always vote for the winner of the election.
Which is why the shenanigans down in Florida make me sick.
In case you don’t know, there was a story that broke yesterday that Bill Clinton was contacted by the Charlie Crist campaign to try and get Kendrick Meek out of the Senate Race.
The thing is, I’m sick and tired of this bullshyt. Kendrick Meek is the Democratic Party’s Nominee for the Senate from the State of Florida.
Without no much as ONE PUBLIC SENTENCE FROM CHARLIE CRIST EVER ON PROMISING TO CAUCUS WITH THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY IF HE WON..
we have seen a drumbeat of mofos calling for Meek to drop out.
They pretend that Charlie Crist isn’t an amoral oil slick, who, if the GOP took over the Senate wouldn’t go ‘ I don’t know you’ to all the Democratic Clowns who are calling for Meek to step down.
They pretend like Meek would be the first Democrat to lose a statewide race in Florida.
They pretend like Kendrick Meek was appointed the Democratic Nominee instead of putting together his campaign from scratch throughout the state. It’s not like Meek woke up 1 month ago and said, ‘I’m the Democratic Nominee for Senate.’
No, he went through a year long( if not more) process, building everything from scratch.
THERE WAS NO REASON WHY ANY OTHER DEMOCRAT IN FLORIDA COULD NOT HAVE DONE THE SAME THING.
But, Kendrick Meek did the hard work. He did all the legwork. He shook the hands. He went to meet the people, and, it is not his fault that no other Florida Democrats, outside of that shady creep who ran against him at the last minutes was the only one who would run. Meek won the nomination WITHOUT crapping on his base (cough:::Artur Davis, Adrian Fenty:::cough).
Meek won his right to win, and yes, to lose, this election.
I don’t know if all this leaking so soon before the election is meant to encourage or suppress the Black vote. I do know, if I was in Florida, I’d be tempted to ONLY vote for Kendrick Meek and let the rest of the Florida Democratic Party to go play in traffic during rush hour.
You can read the entire post here.
“Even if Meek loses, his entire campaign was full of attempts to sideline it.
When he was running for the nomination – the media and Democratic leaders started pushing the meme that Meek couldn’t win.
BUT.HE.DID. As Rikyrah said, Meek has EARNED the RIGHT to fully campaign in this race – WIN OR LOSE.
Yet the Florida Democratic Party has not made it easy for him – they spent all their time wooing a crook like Charlie Crist and should Crist get that Senate seat, look for Mike Rogers to out his ass as a closeted homosexual married to a beard.
While I don’t give a damn about Crist’s identification – I do care that Kendrick Meek is getting shafted and his own party is colluding in the conspiracy to force him from the race.
POTUS better stay way clear of this one. He got burned on Sestak – maybe he’ll learn the lesson of dealing with turncoats in your own political party and start showing them his size 13s.”
What say you Dems? Are we Democrats going to vote for a Democrat? Are we going to go to the polls and vote for Ken Meeks and let the media, Crist, and Rubio lie, spin, cheat, and slither across the finish line in this election?
