An Open Letter to the Colorado Democratic Party

Friday, August 22, 2008
Dear Colorado Democratic Party,

It pains me to have to be so blunt about this, but I don't love you. I don't care about you. I have no personal loyalty to you, your platform, your ideas, or your candidates.

The fact that I registered to vote as a Democrat does not mean you own my vote, my money, my time, or my loyalty. It doesn't mean I'm guaranteed to vote Democrat in any election, and if I believe the Republican candidate is the better choice, that individual will get my vote. You are not entitled to anything from me.

The fact that I volunteered as a Democratic election judge does not mean I'm interested in campaigning for your candidate, your issue, your party. I'm interested in democracy, and I hate to be the one to break it to you, but you do not have a corner on that market.

So do me a favor and stop fucking calling me. Are we clear now?

Signed,

A Frustrated Voter

Yeah, me too.

With Uncle Teddy headed to courts and maybe prison, suddenly red state Alaska is swing state and the Republicans have all lost those little smug smiles they used to sport around here.

And I'm getting calls, visits, and flyers ass deep every day. Last night three phone calls. 1 GOP, 2 Dems. 1 visit from a local dem running for the state house, and two flyers on my door, and 3 more in my mailbox.

It's starting to chaff, man, like sand in the shorts.

"But... but... if we're not entitled to your vote... then... we... might have to actually do something to earn your vote instead of just taking you for granted...and that... and that would mean... that would mean...."

(Curiously, the sound of heads exploding in a Democratic campaign headquarters sounds strangely like the sound of a computer exploding after being trapped in an if-then loop by Captain Kirk in an old Star Trek episode. What an odd coincidence.)

"Murph is my name, head-exploding commentary is my game."

Take that, political asshats!

TONG, MOTHERFUCKER, TONG!!
