Who knows, maybe if this ruling had been in place before the last election, Obama would not have been elected! Then we could avoid emotional train wrecks like Jill Dorson's piece over at Real Clear Politics:
I am a registered Independent. I voted for Barack Obama. And for that, I am sorry.
I'm not sorry for you. I'm sorry for me. Because I voted for Obama for me, not for you. I voted for hope and change and all the intangibles that Obama was peddling in the wake of the financial crisis, Sarah Palin, Sept. 11 and all the other ills that shook our country in the last decade. I wanted something new. Something different. What I got was, I suppose, exactly what I voted for - a spin doctor.After fighting off the urge to want to puke on the keyboard or reach through the screen and choke this twit who equates Sarah Palin with 9/11, I calmed down and read on hoping to perhaps understand the thinking of an Obama voter. It's rich:
Obama was so convincing that I stopped caring about what he knew and started getting caught up in the euphoria. Imagine having a president who came from a broken home, who had money troubles, who did grass-roots community service? A young father. The first black president. It pains me to admit I got caught up in the hoopla.
