Wednesday, November 3rd, 2004 • 2 Comments on Be Careful Who You Vote For
If you voted for George W. Bush yesterday, I hope you’re not African-American. Or Asian-American. Or Muslim. Or any other non-Christian religion.
I hope you’re not a woman. I hope you’re not between the ages of 18 and 40.
I also hope you’re not poor. I hope you’re not a member of, or married to, the military.
I hope you’re not a college student, small business owner or minimum wage worker.
I hope you’re not gay or bisexual.
I hope you’re not a writer or artist, and if you are, I hope your work is only the most innocent and innocuous of writing and art.
I hope you’re not a teacher, or a student.
I hope you’re not elderly. I hope you don’t have a chronic disease that requires expensive medical treatment.
I hope no one you love is any of these things, either.
In other words, if you voted for George W. Bush, I hope you are an upper middle class, straight, white male over the age of 40. Otherwise, you might get what you deserve.
And if you didn’t bother to vote at all, I hope the next four years are memorable for you.
