    Fighting "The Man" ... I'm Starting to Get Across

    My boss votes on his wallet, nothing else.

    He also hates and is embarrassed by Bush.

    He likes to ask me my thoughts on things. I think he can be converted, but I am going to have to start stepping up the rhetoric. I just hate talking about politics at work, so we don't talk much.

    This Palin choice has him concerned, and he's officially wavering. I said to him today, "Forget that she's affiliated with a secessionist party, and that she has no experience. She's incredibly right wing and anti-choice."

    At this he got a very disgusted look on his face and said, "I know. Look, you and I are really politically so much more alike than we are different."

    I said, "Come on, consider Obama." He just keeps saying, "I just can't." He insists it's not due to race, and I believe him, based on what I know about him. He's just so concerned Obama is going to raise his taxes. I finally asked if I could forward him a non-partisan, non-opinionated base comparison of Obama and McCain on taxes and he said sure. And he read each and every point and we argued over some of them.

    And I took a big risk when he kept parroting his, "I don't think Obama's any more qualified," line. I said, "Who did you vote for in 2000 and 2004? Did you vote for Bush?"

    He said he did.

    I said, "So clearly your judgment on who is qualified to run this country is completely lacking."

    He had nothing to say to that. In fact, I thought I had made him angry and I peeked over the cube wall later to say, "You mad at me for the Bush remark?" He said, "Nah, you're right..."

    I think I'm getting through to him.
    I'm sensing that this is a mole.

    If it's a mole he failed to read the instructions for writing a good bouncy and I'm disappointed. Come on moles, you can do better than this.

    I tend to buy these things when they are work-related stories. Well, at least the half about the moonbat completely flying off the handle at a passive remark.

    Liberals aren't afraid to come out and say that they're Liberals. They will tell you straight up that they're a left-wing progressive, and then act offended when you mention something like "well, that whole baby-killing thing kind of turns me off of the Democrat platform."

    Republicans are much more reserved about their political beliefs. It's all pins and needles until someone finally mentions a Rovian code-word, then "hooray!" a kindred spirit and we bash libs. But there are way too many closet Conservatives out there.

    Hasn't it recently been proven that Palin was NOT affiliated with a secessionist party? I thought I heard somewhere that accusation has been debunked, along with all the other things DUmmies have accused her of.

    It has. When did something like the truth matter to a DUmmy?
