These People Vote...

and that's why you need to also. I admit I have a fascination with these YouTube videos of crazy rightwingers at McCain/Palin rallies. The idea that there are people out there who are interested in politics enough to stand in line for hours to see a politician and yet apparently devote no time or energy to investigating issues blows me away.

That these people so transparently recieve all the instruction they need from Rush Limbaugh and Fox News was perhaps demonstrated most clearly with the conspiratorial connection between ACORN, Obama, and the economic unravelings. A not insignificant number of people listened to Bill O'Reilly and Rush Limbaugh saying "30 years ago black people started getting mortgages, and that's why the credit crunch happened!" and thought to themselves "Hey, that makes sense!"

I'm fascinated by their ignorance, and repulsed by their hatred. Here are a few of the videos making the rounds. Don't forget, if you stay home on November 4th, these people will pick your president for you.

I wouldn't let these people choose my socks for me, let alone my President.
