Gasbags all over* are wishing for a Hillary Do Over now that obama’s support across the board is crumbling like paper mache Greek columns. Long-time pro-Hillary bloggers have been keeping the record straight on the fact that Hillary actually WON the Democratic primaries in 2008 if you consider “winning an election” to be defined as “receiving the highest number of votes from registered voters.” Click HERE if you’ve forgotten, or if a kool aid high prevented you from ever knowing, the facts. That’s right, 17,857,501 Americans (many millions of
them us women) voted for Hillary Rodham Clinton in 2008, from New Jersey to Michigan, California to Massachusetts, Nevada to Pennsylvania to Florida (those states sound familiar? Yeah, that’s where the Democratic base lives and we voted like crazy for Hillary).
That’s 272,809 MORE VOTES for Hillary than for Barack.
That number, 17.8 million, is eerily close to the number of American women now living in poverty in the U.S.A. And 7.5 million of those women are living in EXTREME poverty, defined as annual income less than HALF of the poverty line. And the tens of million of extremely poor children being raised by desperately struggling single mothers? Forget about it.
Coincidence? I think the fuck not.
Every woman in America, rich or poor or middle class, needs to go into her polling place on November 6th, 2012 and vote this anti-woman, misogynistic, poverty-ignoring piece of crap administration out of office. We owe it to all the single mothers and poor grandmothers who are literally considering suicide today.
