Catch that knee before it jerketh!
Y’all know that a bitch keeps an eye on all things mainstream media based because it’s important to know what the masses are consuming (wink).
Anyhoo, do people actually vote for candidates based on the shit listed on each candidate’s profile page? Because if they do that explains how Scooter B. slid his Divine Rights of Presidents ass into the Oval Office not once but twice!
The profile site has a picture of the candidate…that’s cool and I get that shit. But then it proceeds to break down where each candidate stands on the issues and that’s where CNN.com ran into trouble.
For example, Choice has been boiled down to Abortion and where a candidate stands on that issue is that they either support or don’t support abortion rights. But…ummm, that doesn’t tell me shit! How does the candidate define abortion rights…do they support parental notification…do they support abortion only in cases of rape or incest…do they support late term abortion?
And Choice is more complicated than support or lack of support for abortion. Sorry, but it is! Where does the candidate stand on public funding for birth control, comprehensive sex education versus abstinence only education, access to birth control at public schools, state notification of teen pregnancies and does the candidate support a woman’s right to get her motherfucking Emergency Contraception prescription filled without the pharmacist tossing up a tent and conjuring up a revival?
Lawd, have mercy!
They’ve got more space dedicated to which celebrity supports a candidate and how much money they threw behind that support than to where the candidate stands on the few issues they’ve decided matter…and that just ain’t right. Listing campaign advisors is okay but…Gawd, does it matter if Jodie Foster gave any of these people money?
Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Lily Tomlin but this bitch could do without knowing about her $2,000 donation to Hills’08 and could use some motherfucking depth on what these folks mean when they say Social Security reform.
And the campaign sites make CNN.com’s tour of political star fucking look like a doctorial thesis.
Logs off to send a strident e-mail to Wolfie B...
