The agony of sheepery

Whilst acquiring some arcane tomes on Human-Computer Interface Design at UT's Perry-Castañeda Library, I actually heard a woman aver the following:

"These people who are voting for Obama, they're voting on emotion, not on who the most qualified candidate is."

Five minutes later:

"I may just have to vote Republican in this election. I simply don't like Obama."

This left me Dumbfounded. Flummoxed. Flabbergasted. Maximally Nonplussed. I mean, wow, just when I thought American society couldn't get any more Orwellian, wham, I get hit over the head with evidence that bullet-point regurgitation really has supplanted logical reasoning and rational discourse. Ugh. As loathe as I am to buy into the Republican stereotype of the "liberal elite," boy howdy am I seized with the urge to grab me a shotgun and mow down every uneducated, jack-asinine, racist, Clinton-supporting moron. Argh.

Meantime, for want of a kinder, gentler cajolement, I urge this sage message upon Senator Clinton, courtesy of Ludacris.
