Sarah emailed this to me, and I found the original blog entry — if you haven’t heard it yet, Adam Felber’s Concession Rant is well written; he puts to word a lot of the thoughts that are still running through my mind. I know, I’m just a sorry loser and I should just accept the fate as what it is and move along for the better unity in the country. But, quite simply, I cannot. Die-hard easily-frustrated conservatives, now may be the time to unsubscribe from this blog. The paragraph that hit the closest to home:
I concede that I put too much faith in America’s youth. With 8 out of 10 of you opposing the President, with your friends and classmates dying daily in a war you disapprove of, with your future being mortgaged to pay for rich old peoples’ tax breaks, you somehow managed to sit on your asses and watch the Cartoon Network while aging homophobic hillbillies carried the day. You voted with the exact same anemic percentage that you did in 2000. You suck. Seriously, y’do. [Cheers, applause] Thank you. Thank you very much.
I wish it were funny, but it’s just the truth, and it’s hard to laugh about that, especially when you consider how the election would have looked if the election was up to the kids that didn’t show up and vote.
