A Simple Question

Michael Berube has a simple, multiple choice question for progressives who don't plan to vote for Kerry. So please let us know if you're voting for someone else, like Nader for example, because:

(a) you are unaware of the extent to which the Bush crowd consists of kleptomaniac Contra-funding retreads, neo-segregationists associated with Confederate outlets like Southern Partisan magazine and the Council of Conservative Citizens, and Christian fundamentalist jihadists who believe themselves to be the instruments of God; or

(b) you are sublimely indifferent to the fact that the Bush crowd consists of kleptomaniac Contra-funding retreads, neo-segregationists associated with Confederate outlets like Southern Partisan magazine and the Council of Conservative Citizens, and Christian fundamentalist jihadists who believe themselves to be the instruments of God. ...

As he says, please let us know which it is. In the first case, I would direct you to the Shrillblog, where you can be "driven into shrill unholy madness by one or more of the mendacity, malevolence, incompetence, or simple disconnection from reality of the George W. Bush administration." The Shrill advise that only a few minutes of daily study of the Bush administration's words and actions can turn a person Shrill in no time.

In the second case, well, we can't do much for you. The sublimely indifferent are voting Republican this year, and even the spreading Shrillness of many fellow Republicans hasn't worked to turn them around.
