The older I get, the less patience I have with stupid. (Not that I had a lot to begin with.) But there’s a lot of stupid out there, especially during election season.
Take the Leftista response to a mailer recently circulated in select races for the Washington State Legislature. The Dreaded Mailer urges “progressive” voters in the 6th and 19th and 26th Legislative Districts to write in a third candidate, according to the Seattle Times. More background: From The News Tribune.
The regressive “progressive” hissy-fit that ensued is instructive, if not amusing.
For example, an October 27 email from email@example.com, The Real Progressive Voter’s Guide for the 24th district, huffed:
This week, Republican operatives here in Washington sent fake Fuse-branded mailers, trying to intentionally mislead voters into voting for write-in candidates in close races.1 That’s why it’s more important than ever for us to get the real Progressive Voters Guide into the hands of as many voters as possible. (Emphasis in original.)
More than 400,000 Washingtonians have already filled out their ballot and thousands more will do it today. Whether you’re voting for living wages, racial justice, women’s health, our environment, or our kids’ future, the choices we make will impact our state for years to come.
Democrats and their ideological cronies like the Far Left folks at Fuse kicked up quite a fuss over The Dreaded Mailers. So much so that one must wonder:
- Do they really think Democratic voters can’t figure out how to locate a Voter’s Pamphlet and open it?
- That Leftista voters are unable to engage in independent analysis or think for themselves? (Hope springs eternal….)
- That their base needs baby-sitting and hand-holding and is incapable of making an intelligent ballot choice sans Big Brother oversight?
- Urging a write-in vote for a third option is “suppression”? Seriously?
- What are they afraid of?
Meanwhile, trying to make hay out of… something, others gave new meaning to the word incoherent (see middle comment in screen shot):
Yea, verily. Watching the collective Leftista meltdown in response to The Dreaded Mailer is almost good as Amateur Night at the Bijou. Without the popcorn. It’s also a pretty good indicator of the Leftista view of the role and function of government, you peon citizen, you.
Maybe we can sell tickets?
