I watched an interview of a college girl this morning. Enlightening. I think, ah, it’s like, … like, well – you know, my family is Democrat.
Would you ever vote for McCain?
(I’ll skip all the likes, ahs, you knows). No – he’s too old. We’re modern, he’s not.
Knock, knock, knock. Hello!! Anyone home?? By her logic experience does not count. Knowledge does not count. Mature judgment does not count. Just youth and being “modern”. By her logic Obama is more qualified because he is young and inexperienced. Does that make a baby more qualified to vote than she is?
What about Obama’s 20 year association with Jeremiah Wright? This guy is a kook. If Wright were white and saying what he has been he would have been dismissed as a racially bigoted kook and any candidate associated with him would have been laughed and sneered and jeered from the scene. But, he is not white so he gets by with this crap, as does Obama. I don’t know about anyone else, but I can certainly listen to a couple of any preacher’s sermons and pretty well figure out where he comes from. Is Obama asleep during the sermons or that dense or what? Yeah, I know that he has distanced himself from Wright lately, but people – 20 years?
The same bunch of starry-eyed college kids stated that Wright had told Obama that Obama would have to distance himself from Wright and didn’t seem to think that Obama should be held responsible for being affiliated with the man for 20 years. What was that about birds of a feather?
I’m beginning to think that we should raise the voting age to 30 and require that only taxpayers be eligible. That’s not necessarily as far out as it sounds. Developmentally the human brain, as measured by EEG does not fully mature until between 24 and 28. Interestingly enough the last area to develop fully is that of judgment. Non-taxpayers are not paying the fiddler. They are likely to vote themselves bread and circuses every time. As my mother used to say – he who pays the fiddler calls the tune. Go figure.
