Identity Politics
Posted by: Jon Henke on Sunday, June 24, 2007

Yikes. Imagine this being said by a Republican...
The questions for you [John Edwards], if you really want to pay the price to make the changes you say you want to make, are: can you “hit” a woman? Can you beat up, politically, on a black man and not feel guilty about it?

If not, please, stop wasting people’s time and money.
One might dream that the Democrats would campaign on the content of their policies, rather than the color of their skin. Or on their gender.

Unfortunately, the implicitly stereotypical and prejudicial "identity politics" that Democrats (especially, though not exclusively) have exploited over the past few decades may make that...somewhat difficult. [Note: disclosure]

I know plenty of people who would vote for Hillary Clinton solely because she’d be the first woman president. Talk about your affirmative action hire! Can you imagine someone saying that they’d vote for Candidate X simply because he’s a man?

Replace "Hillary Clinton" with "Barack Obama" and "woman" with "black person". Repeat.

Call me crazy, but I prefer to base my vote for a candidate on what’s between their ears, not what’s between their legs; and for the content of their character not the color of their skin. If you like Clinton’s or Obama’s policies and think they’d make good leaders, vote for them. But don’t vote for them just because he’s black or she’s a woman.

Pause for a moment and reflect on the idiocy of liberals. Sigh.

Wow - I know so many women who are ’conservative’ but they tell me they will vote for Hillary... can someone ’splain that for me?

Is that why you voted for Bush twice?

Hey! This place is really hoppin’!

Did you see his opponents? Alas, the lesser of two evils is still evil...

(Admittedly, I voted for Bush in 04 and not in 00. But that was partly because Badnarik was a nut.)
