The Mississippi primary is over and Obama has cruised to a win there. John McCain, on the Republican side, has won handily garnering nearly 80% of the vote.
Now, I suspect that Mississippi went for Obama based on his race. I don't have the polling data to support that. It's just a hunch. But what I do know is that, yet again, the men of the Democrat Party stayed home. 42% of the voters in the Dem primary were males, 58% were females. And, no, primaries are not directly relevant to the general election in terms of participation. Massive Dem turnout for primaries has often translated into less than stellar numbers once the November election occurs.
But I wonder how this is playing out in Democrat homes across the country. As the women march to the polling sites to cast their votes for the candidate of "Change, Hope, and Unity" *kaff kaff*, or to vote for the candidate of "Screech, Anger, and Lies" *heheheeee!*, the men seem to dither and then not bother to vote at all. The Democratic Party has become Feminized, at least during the Primary Season. And that's not a good thing. The Party needs leadership in a time of troubles around the globe. But what it's getting is the same old socialist garbage with a new coat of paint. So the men show their apathy and remain home. This cannot be good for old-time, true Liberal Democrats. But it's Manna for the New Leftist who now controls the Democrat Party.
Regardless who takes the nomination of the Dems I think this apathy will play out well for John McCain and even the Republicans in general. Once the electorate sees and hears the Democrat candidate speaking the same old losing, Socialist platitudes and realizes just how empty their promises are, America will "McGovern" them out of office.
I could be wrong. I have been before. But if McCain speaks to the historical record of Socialism, displays the ugliness, emptiness, and economic despair that comes with Socialism, I'm betting that Americans will "Just Say No!"
That's what I think, anyway.
