Note to White Women: Stop Your Bitchin'!

Give me a fucking break already. From Yahoo News:

In recent polls, Obama has had a significant edge among women. A Quinnipiac University poll released July 15 found women supported Obama over Republican John McCain, 55 percent to 36 percent. Among men, McCain had 47 percent and Obama 44 percent.

However, Obama hasn't had an advantage among independent women voters, who gave him 45 percent to 42 percent for McCain, well within the margin of error.

Obama also has work to do with some Clinton supporters. A recent poll by The Associated Press and Yahoo News found that just 12 percent of former Clinton supporters say they are excited about Obama.

"I'm not saying these women are bitter ... but they don't understand how to take this devotion and energy and put it behind the candidate who took her away from them," said Susie Tompkins Buell, a prominent Clinton fundraiser with deep reservations about Obama.

She said Obama must demonstrate his respect for Clinton — by working harder to help retire her campaign debt, for instance — and prove that he understands the concerns of (WHITE) female voters.

His "respect for Clinton," You gotta be fucking kidding me right? What exactly would confer "respect." Should he say "yes Missus," every time he sees her? Should he help her across busy road ways or lay his coat over a puddle for her? What?

As Professor Tracey said:

We are trying to win a damn election, there is no more time for your hurt feelings! Money needs to raised, phone calls need to be made, and votes need to be cast. I really don't get what they are waiting on. There is less than 100 days left until the election, how much longer is this game going to drag on?

Now while I'm not an Obama fan. And am seriously considering voting for Cynthia McKinney, I still can't abide by all this whining (or cow0towing on Obama's part) to thes over privileged, whining, sore losing White chicks. Like I said, give me a fucking break or in more colloquial terms: Man Up already.

that's immature on their part. People should be supporting based on the candidates expertise and experience...and goals/plans but damn!!!

Straight to the point. That's why we like you! And I agree. People should get over their own little self and just get on with the job. The figure on men tells us something though. They are as thick as bricks.
