I vehemently disagree, and find your political post offensive to my personal ideals in every way possible. Also, I don’t think you’re very smart.

…that’s the right comment on a political post, right? :) Disagreement and/or insulting the person’s intelligence? At least that seems to be the generally accepted format.

If you are going to continue with these inflammatory posts filled with outlandish speculation, I’m afraid I just can’t read your blog anymore…

I like a succinct political post. Too bad the politicians can’t take a leaf outta your book.

I almost zoned out half way through the disclaimer, (sorry it was 6.30am!) but I’m so glad I read to the end. I feel truly educated now – thank you ;o)

I think you’d give the political pundits on CNN a run for their money.

allow me my moment…

history has always shown that, in the u.s., black men gain power before women (black or white).

however, history shows it’s usually *right* before…

Amanda: Yeah! For real!

Hilly: Thanks for explaining it for the rest of us. :)

whall: Oh — and you would agree… (by the way — thanks for the link!)

Epiphany: I think you’ve got it. :) The blogging community from which I came had quite a few folks who were very passionate about their opinions — and made it abundantly clear that anyone who diverged from said opinions had something wrong with them.

Dave2: I learned it on FOX News — so it must be true. :)

othurme: I beg to differ. I intentionally used the word vacuum in my disclaimer to make it light-hearted and familiar to the hot, sexy vacuuming crowd. Write for your audience…

NYCWD: Crazy, no? (And thank you, sir, for snacking on me on a Sunday.)

Miss Britt: I’m as much brilliant as you are noble. :)

Karl: Ah, yes. The politi-blogging equivalent of blueballs. Enjoy!

katherine: So true. Wait ’til I think of my second one!

Winter: Agreed. Succinct is key. Take a look at FDR who said, with brevity in mind, The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. And sharks.

Penelope: My pleasure! Welcome to the American political system…

Avitable: Things have been shit at CNN since Soledad O’Brien started wearing higher cut tops. Yawnfest…

Ms. Benefit: If this were correct, we’d see a Black man win the Indy 500 already. Explain THAT! :)

Wayne is right. Your post is the best. I like the part where you outline each position and where your stance is… oh wait, that’s another post…

Seriously, I read the intro and got all built up and found the end result still satisfying. Clever, you shiny person, you.
