I Am Not An American.

Well, I could be – I’m white, and suitably plump, but I’m not American.

Nevertheless, I feel like commenting on the US presidential elections, so I shall.

I would vote for Obama, it’s not even a contest. Hillary .. seriously, I just cannot get past her war vote. To me, her voting “Yes” on war with Iraq means that:

(a)She is either stupider and more easily led than the kinds of hippie scum who think that singing “War! What is it good for? Ab-so-lute-ly NOTHIN’!” outside a government building is Speaking Truthiness To Power. Even those freaks worked out that ‘W was going to invade no matter what anyone, including weapons inspectors, found or failed to find.


(b)She’s a ruthless psychopath who would throw away thousands and thousands of US lives, and thousands or hundreds of thousands of Iraqui lives, for the sake of her own politicasl career and aspirations.

Also, did I see her crying on TV the other day? Was she crying over the bodies of US soldiers coming back in body bags? From a war she voted for? Nah, course not – she was crying over the thought of not being elected.

I’d still happily vote for her instead of anyone who’s still prepared to stand up and say that they’re a damn replublican.


  1. I don’t mind. It’s the weirdest thing, I just don’t mind. Obama’s said he’s personally opposed to gay marriage, but he’d be happy to let the States decide, which is the moral equivalent of ‘don’t ask don’t tell’, and his John-Key-glibness annoys me… but no matter how worked up people on my sub list are getting, either would be such a huge improvement on the current situation that I just can’t get transported about it.

    • Seriously? Obama said that? I didn’t know that … that’s very disappointing.

      • “I personally believe that marriage is between a man and a woman. But I also agree with most Americans, including Vice President Cheney and over 2,000 religious leaders of all different beliefs, that decisions about marriage should be left to the states as they always have been.”

        I picked it up here.

      • Yep, I know lots of people who are conflicted about this, as Hillary is actively pro-GLBT.

  2. There is something about Hilary that gives me the creeps, I think it’s her sincere insincerity (if that makes any sense). Still, rather her than another of George Ws mates

  3. Hillary Clinton reminds me of my mother. Take that as you will…

  4. If you’re not American then you should also try harder to avoid using Americanisms like “drywall” as you keep on doing. It’s not the American-originated words that grate. It’s the Still Only Used In the US ones that annoy. You sodding yank. 🙂

    • See, my Candan relatives (from whom I get the occasional ‘merkin word like “drywall”) will read other posts in this journal, and they’ll say things like “You lifted “the bonnet” of your car?” and then they’ll ask me if it’s a pretty pretty bonnet with bright ribbons and a lace trim.
