80’s Dance Party*

by Nathan Hamm on 4/7/2004 · 5 comments

It looks like the only way I can maintain my commitment to the ideals of the Democratic Party is to register as a Republican, I just don’t know if I can vote for the Republican Candidate.

(For those who might take me too seriously (Dad), this post is intended as semi-humorous commentary on the race for the opponent’s ground)

* “80’s Dance” is the party you right in on the “Other Party” part of your voter registration form if you’re cool.

I’m too serious? Looks like Kerry is moving to the middle, he must think Nader isn’t a threat. Or maybe he is going to concede Nader 6% of the left and mine the middle from Bush. Makes sense, taking a vote from Bush is worth twice a vote taken from Nader.

Just think if he gets McCain as a running mate…ex-military isolationist vs ex-recreational drug user, geopolitical nation builder. Man, will some people be confused

Serious isn’t the right word–“dabbler in Democratic Fundamentalism” is a bit more accurate. The way you talk about the party sometimes, you’d think they’ve single-handedly saved the world from the machinations of the Republican Illuminati. Really, you better watch out. You keep talking like Republicans only do things for the basest of all motives (mammon), and no one will believe you when you say you read The Skeptical Inquirer.

Actually there is a big fight on the Oregonians For Rationality website. Can rationality be applied to politics? It seems to be more emotional than religion.
