"Hope Is On the Way"

It's strange to link Ken Wheaton a third time this week, but, hey, let's face it, when a guy pushes you into a corner in a bar and says "Your blog is so damn smart and funny I just have to give you a non-gay 'friendship handjob' right here and now," you tend to remember his URL.

I'm not saying anyone else should try this, by the way. For some reason I was just receptive to it. I had just finished watching Youngblood again, and, welll... let's just say Rob Lowe was practically packed into that hockey uniform.

At any rate, this post should help clarify what this election is about:

If you think this war started on Sept. 11 ... hope is on the way.

If you think that we are in a war against terror, rather than a war against Islamic fundamentalists ... hope is on the way.

If you think that these Islamic fundamentalists are basically the same as Westernized Christian fundamentalists, no worse, no better ... hope is on the way.

If you think that these Islamic fundamentalists will suddenly be charmed by reason, persuaded by logic, if you fail to learn the lessons of the Communist intellectuals who helped the Iranian Revolution ... hope is on the way.

That's the kind of hope we don't need. If you're looking for that kind of hope for the next four long, bitter, hellish years, by all means, sit on your ass on election day and pick your toenails.

What the hell does it take to get committed-but-nonvoting conservatives to vote, anyway? Maybe this: On November 2nd, Impeach President John Forbes Kerry pre-emptively.

And, if you can, try to do more than vote. Captain's Quarters has some suggestions. So does Slantpoint.

Those links, and plenty more, from Kesher Talk. There's more that needs to be done.

And me? Well, I'm trying to figure out what I can do, too. I'm going to be knocking on doors or manning the phone banks somewhere. I'd hoped to be some sort of impressario/host, maybe wearing a Captain Stubing captain's jacket of some kind (don't know why, just always wanted to strut around like a big macher on the Aloha Deck), but it seems I'm to be a grunt.

It's that important. It's that important that I'm going to get my lazy ass to do something. Maybe look into it yourself, too, if you can find the time.

Update: Carnivorous Conservative, for one, says he's a former non-voter who's now definitely voting.

And if You Live in NYC or NJ: Alarming News wants you to go to Hackensack and help make phone calls to drum out Republican voters.

I've been to Hackensack. It's not nearly as bad as the name might suggest. Maybe I'll return this weekend...

The Black Republican is taking the the next week semi-off (?) from his blog to work for the RNC. Good for you, man.
