This Nonsense Has To Stop

I know I'm a bit late, but I saw this on Think Progress and it'd driving me crazy. On Sunday, a Washington Times reporter went to early voting and found a group of loud, angry protestors - mostly white, all McCain supporters - harassing the voters, who were mostly black and supporting Obama.

Freedom of speech and assembly are wonderful, of course, but if you're protesting people VOTING, you don't understand how democracy works. Furthermore, if you're yelling violent things and waving signs that say things like "Abort Obama," you're just an asshole.

But really, what bothers me most is that they're harassing voters for exercising their right to vote. If you have a problem with it, get the hell in line and vote for McCain, don't just stand there yelling.

And then on top of that, the McCain campaign has been going for the whole "real Americans" vs "Marxist liberals" angle lately. Urg. Make it stop!

Anyway. That was a rant. This week is really busy, but proper posts are on the way, so look forward to them!
