The Horse That Wouldn’t Drink

It’s one of the oldest English proverbs around: You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink. (Or, as they would have said in the 12th century: Hwa is thet mei thet hors wettrien the him self nule drinken.)

Whenever selection day rolls around, the Donkeyphant party is the bartender serves you a choice of cyanide-infused koolaid or arsenic-sweetened goperade, in different colors and artificial flavors. Who says you have to drink?

What if everyone went down to the bar with their own bottles of pure, clear, clean water?

Primaries start on January 3rd in Iowa and roll on after that to other states. The Democratic Party is confident that Obama will be awarded the nomination uncontested, and the Republican Party is confident that Romney’s rivals are too weak and fragmented to oppose him.

What if every registered Democrat who is unhappy with Obama went to their primary and caucused for or wrote in Hillary Clinton?

What if every registered Republican who was dissatisfied with the GOP field went to their primary and caucused for or wrote in Sarah Palin?

The power of the Donkeyphant Party to select our leaders rests on our going along with their fake choices. Heads they win, tails we lose. Picking one of those false choices is throwing away our vote.

Why not make a real choice? Write in the name of a real leader.

    right after calling Americans lazy, backtrack hit the links AGAIN. This time with a john who solicited a prostitute who turned out to be an undercover cop

    Sarah will announce her pick for GOP nomination tonight on Greta.

    Maybe she’ll mention the Solyndra scandal too?:

      We’ll see if Palin actually endorses someone or just says a, b, or c can win if they do x, y, & z.

      I have a feeling she’ll be talking more about corruption and the Throw Them All Out book.

    In my state I can’t caucus for Hillary or Sarah. You can only caucus for who the party is offering. However, Wa Dems do have an “undecided” category and we actually do send undecided delegates to the convention. There’s a whole caucus group dedicated to the undecided/undeclared category. They’ve been protesting the Dem establishment for many years now and always give great speeches about the importance of voting for “none of the above.”

    Unemployment around here is horrendous. I just read an ad by some creative soul offering to sell his vote. He posted his resume and says if you hire him, he’ll vote for whatever candidates you tell him to. He goes on to say that his influence is definitely for sale, as are most of his belongings.

      Undecided would be good (although “completely disgusted” would probably be more accurate).

      He posted his resume and says if you hire him, he’ll vote for whatever candidates you tell him to.

      Brilliant. Has Mitt snapped him up yet?

    Speaking of scandals, here’s the latest one about Solyndra – the Dept of Energy asked them not to announce layoffs until after the 2010 midterm elections.

    I was a donkey for 30 years and then I was a puma. I was accused of being a covert elephant for a while, but then I converted to a mama grizzly. At this point I’m a member of the dead goat party. I will literally vote for any dead goat that replaces Obama.

    Speaking of tin foil, I just know the blasted Republican nominee is going to be Newt. Newt wrote “Winning the Future” and Obama stole it for a campaign slogan. It’s going to be “2012, WTF?” no matter who runs. It’s enough to make you hope the Mayan calender is right.
