Hip Hop Mike is happier than a house slave at an Antebellum dance tonight. Can't say I blame him. Looks like a clean sweep for the rethugs in Virginia ,and poor John Corzine is running for his political life in Jersey. The folks in Jersey might just be stuck with Chris Christie, the republican, for the next four years. (That's if he doesn't eat half of the state by then.)
But fear not Obamaholics, don't listen to the pundits, this is not a referendum on your boy. A-merry-cans still like him personally. They are just a little skittish about his policies right now. Make no mistake folks; without a movement to rally around, or a charismatic leader to lead them, people in this country who vote to the left of most issues are just never motivated to come out and vote. It's why I wouldn't be surprised to see the rethugs win everything in sight tonight. Throw in the fact that these are off year elections, and we still have a bad economy (thank you frat boy) and no one should be surprised.
Still, having said all of that, you Negroes in states like Virginia and New Jersey who didn't vote today should be ashamed of yourselves. Politics isn't about your gut emotions like your church, it's about issues. But field, what difference does it make? To some poor guy working at a dead end job and trying to feed a family on $10 an hour, it doesn't matter whether it's Corzine or Christie. Three or four years form now he will still be in the same dead end job. This is the political reality in A-merry-ca, field; the system is rigged.
Yes, but what about "Yes we can"? What about "Hope"? What about "We are the change that we have been waiting for"? Was it all just talk? Folks just caught up in the emotion of some awesome speeches? His O ness came to jersey stumping for Corzine, and the people came out to see him, but you just knew in your heart that they weren't going to come out and vote. They never do.
Only if his O ness himself was at the top of the ticket could their votes have been counted on. So what field, why should they have vote for Corzine? Look at all the corruption from democrats in New Jersey over the past few months. Yes, but you won't be hearing that from the folks over at Radio Rwanda and their minions. This will be all about the tea party movement and the real A-merry-ca rejecting that big government, Obama, and his power grab for our health care system.
Here in Philly we have a very important race to replace our current District Attorney and the voting was today. I guarantee you that we probably had a turnout of about 10% of the eligible voters. Yet, Joe Citizen will will be crying about the DA's office for one reason or another about a year from now. Sorry, don't want to hear it, vote next time.
This just in: The AP is reporting that Christie is the winner in Jersey!
O man, it's time to pull out the ear plugs.
