A great deal of Americans actually do give a damn about what the rest of the world thinks of us. Half of this country apologized when Bush got his “mandate from the people” by getting a 51% win in 2004. Then, of course, we cried for ourselves because while Bush may be a laugh riot for you, we suffer the consequences.
Anyway, in the spirit of giving a damn, I caucused for Obama last night. Took three hours. I want to know what the hell the Democratic Party here in Texas could have possibly been thinking when they designed this horrible system (which basically disenfranchises us and makes us vote twice if we want our votes to mean anything). Maybe it’ll be addressed after that debacle. But yeah, go Obama. Because it really is TIME.
