Yeah, but sometimes the mother-fucker just plain makes you puke, you go into the ballot booth and it's like there's a steel bar shackled to your wrist prohibiting you from casting that strategically desirable vote against the worser of the two shits. That's the way it was with me in '96, right after that now-infamous sex-maniac delivered the coup de grace to AFDC.

I couldn't, I couldn't, I couldn't, and I'll be damned if I'll be ashamed of that. Worst thing I ever saw. If the fascists hang Clinton, at least I'll have the consolation of seen that bastard, who decided to starve the babies, dangling.
