Opinion is one thing — I just can’t abide stupid people

Posted in Elections, Fred(!), Stupid Media on January 10, 2008 by Randy Streu

So, I’m travelling the blogosphere and I catch a “man-on-the-street” interview in which a guy talks about how Fred(!) Thompson is the strongest conservative on the ticket — but he won’t vote for him.  His reason?  Basically because he doesn’t think he’ll get enough votes in the primary.  Huh?  If you don’t think he can win the GE, that’s one thing.  But that’s what Primaries are for

So, in other words, this guy won’t vote Thompson because the news media either pretends he doesn’t exist, or else just says nobody else is voting for him.  Can you say, “baaaaa”?

I’ve said it before:  if you have honest issues with the guy, fine.  I may not like Ron Paul supporters, but at least they’ve chosen their guy on the issues, instead of some invented bullshit about “fire in the belly.”
