I'd like to see some evidence of your claim Espy peeled away McDaniel voters.
Well, Espy did get a higher percentage in some counties in the run-off than Cindy and McDaniel got combined,
so either he was peeling away McDaniel voters, or there was just a bigger turn-out. I do know I have some very confused McDaniel supporter followers on Twitter because they liked my slams on Cindy... so, she definitely didn't get the support of all of 'em.
IMO, as I said previously, Espy got all the black vote and the few white liberals there are in Mississippi. And being a black candidate he got a higher than normal black turnout than a white Democrat would have. And he still couldn't win. Truth is … he was never gonna win.
Espy lost because he's a Democrat. Period.
Yeah, most likely. Never claimed it would be otherwise. And it is more 'cuz he was a Democrat than any race thing. That's the south... at this point in time. But, it's changing.
And Democrats do not represent white socially conservative voters.
Or so they've been trained to believe... like a bunch of dogs.
They insult them in fact, as you did in your post.
I insult conservatives in general. Why? Because they're fucking stupid.
You can deny that if you want, but they goddamn are.
insulting. Sorry, but I have to live with these idiots and put up with them all day long; they owe me at least a laugh out of 'em.
I just got left a conversation with one who interrupted a business conversation to jabber at us for fifteen minutes about the Playstation they're still buying their kid even though he's failing in school. Then she literally
bragged on how stupid she is, like that's a source of pride. "Y'all, ah'm so dumb!
" Jesus. If I have to put up with 'em, help 'em all day, and listen to their mind-numbing idiocy when I'm from the same place and background and bothered to read a goddamn book once in a while so I'll have something to talk about besides what temperature it is, damn if I'm not gonna make fun of 'em.
That "Cletus" you're talking about … he's got a job he works hard at, a wife, kids, a family, elderly parents and relatives, etc …. all of which he's concerned about ....
And yet not concerned enough to actually research the issues and see who'd give them the best education and health care... which is why he has to keep being concerned about 'em. They make their own plights and then wonder why all the bad stuff happens to 'em. These fucks vote against their own interests all the goddamn time. Agressively!
They're slaves to their church, which has fooled them into staying stupid so they can keep being controlled. I have no patience for that shit, especially because the rest of us
have to suffer along with them for their
bad, uninformed decisions. I've got a job, elderly parents, etc. of my own, so Cleetus better get off the Baptist-church tit and quit voting against us all getting better health care, etc. It's 20-goddamn-18 already, Cleetus's ass is 'bout out of slack.
and he'd probably stop to help a black gay man broke down by the side of the road.
Or he'd swerve and try to clip him as he drove by while he yelled "Nigger!" I've seen a hell
of a lot more real-life examples of that
than I have the fantasy scenario you've presented, so fucking spare me. I live in this state, I was raised in this state, you can't tell me jack-F.-shit about the people in this state. Most of these folks are voting to ensure gay folks and black folks have as few rights as possible, so I'm supposed to forget all that 'cuz maybe
once in a while they'd help 'em fix a flat? Shit, dude, you ask a lot more mileage from a nice daydream scenario than it's due.
And even if he is "nice" in general, he's still
dragging the state down with stupid, superstition-based voting patterns that work against him, and me.
I'm tired of being held hostage to these fools. I don't much care if the dude in the boat with me is kind to puppies if he thinks, "Hey, know what's the best thing to do fer boat? Drill holes in the bottom of 'em! Gleep gleep!" I'm still gonna try to take the drill away from him. I mean, shit, dude, what am I supposed to put up with just because maybe
somebody would be kind to somebody if they were broke down on the road? Especially when, all too often, they wouldn't, anyway.
He hunts, fishes, goes to church (not as often as his wife would like him to) and most of importantly of all pertinent to this discussion …. he votes!
And he votes stupidly, which is why my state remains last in all the good things and first in all the bad ones. Sorry, but he ain't no damn hero. He's not entitled to fuck everything up for everybody else just because he can't let go of "Jesus" or whatever. After a while, idiots become a burden, and you get to say so... "politically correct" or not.
How do Dems think they're gonna win people like him over to the Democrat Party when prominent Democrats, their sycophants in the media, and liberal activists continually insult them in terms of their guns, bibles, education, intelligence, culture, history, and fair-mindedness? Not gonna win any popularity contests that way. How do you think Hillary lost the Midwest?
If I thought stupid people would stop being stupid if they weren't called stupid, then maybe I'd stop. But I'm kind as hell to these dumbfucks all day long at work, and you know what it gets me? It gets me MORE DUMBFUCKS. Because I'm the "helpful guy."
I have people here who've never bothered to learn how to run a fax machine or whatever, because, "Hey, Z's nice, he'll help me." So I have to stop what I'm doing five times a day because Lurlene-Sue-McDumbfuck needs me to help her fax something again.
And what's my reward? Getting to do that again, and again, and again... AND she's gonna go vote so my state keeps getting the worst of everything.
(Know what she's usually faxing? Stuff to keep her husband's medication affordable. When she votes against
single-payer, etc., because she's told that "socialized medicine is BAY-YUD!")
Exactly how much sympathy am I required to have for these folks, man? Lemme know, 'cuz I'm worn out with 'em. How much allowance for fucking-stupid am I supposed to flow 'em before I've got your permission to say, "Yeah, you know what? They're fucking stupid."
After a while you figure out you can't
win them over, because they're already solidly brainwashed. What you have to do, instead, is find enough smart people to outnumber them while you wait for them to die out from their own bad decisions. You point out how dumb they are so the next generation will say, "Yeah, I'm not gonna make the same mistakes they did."
So how come is it South Carolina can manage to elect a black Senator and Mississippi can't? Oh … wait … that's because Tim Scott is a Republican. (SC's got a gay senator too!]
I didn't say much about Espy being black. That's not what I'm blaming his loss on, so you can spare me all the identity-politics shit that you're
bringing up. But while we're on it, the Republican party ought to be sweating a little that a black Democrat got the race as close as it was in this
that Cindy Hyde-Smith made the state look bad nationally again
with her "lynching" joke. She's helping to create the face that the GOP's going to have to wear. Think they should be happy about that? Think Mississippi really did the party any big favors by electing that idiot and making their voters look like a bunch of bigots? I know they don't want to lose a senate seat, even for two years, but it wouldn't have been a bad strategy to cut that snaggletoothed clod loose and let her drift on her own. Instead they've got to claim her now. Makes our state look bad, and the Republican party in general look bad. But, I guess it's still a "win," so what the fuck.
