I think one thing is clear this far into the Democratic primary race: Both Obama’s and Clinton’s supporters must now drop out of the race.
Hillary Clinton’s supporters have gotten incredibly annoying, with their chants of “Yes She Can,” and charges of cultism and their desperate yelps of schadenfreude every time Clinton looks like she might actually be “recapturing the lead” that she never had.
And Obama’s supporters, yes, you too are incredibly annoying, with your accusations of Clintonian Republicanism and your whiny little cries about how you’re going to take your ball and run home if your candidate doesn’t win the primary.
Supporters of both candidates, please listen closely. For the good of the Party — no, for the good of the Nation! — the time has come for you to leave this race.
No more late nights in front of MSNBC. No more blogging. No more reading TPM. No more arguing at the watercooler, or at the happy hour after work at TGIF’s.
Find a hobby — knitting is really getting popular these days!
Anything, anything but your insistent and continual droning on and on about how perfect your candidate is.
Remember — the future of this Republic is at stake.
Thank you for your consideration in this matter.
I spent a good chunk of yesterday arguing politics with Historiann. Then I spent much of last night arguing nearly the opposite positions with people at Unfogged. I’ve completely lost my mind. The above is right: I need to drop out of the race.
