George Nemeth: Please visit NortheastOhioBlogs.com

As you can tell by the post below [it's dated some time in 2007], something is amiss here at BFD. A few days ago, the server this blog is hosted on took a dump.

While they’re working diligently to restore service, please head over to NortheastOhioBlogs.com, where’ you’ll find a stream of tweets and the latest blog posts from your neighbors, as well as the resurrected Northeast Ohio Blogroll.

What he said.

More of what they are saying. (hattip Katalusis)

If that’s not resonating with ya, then don’t read this.

And you will definitely not want to read this on MyDD (the audio of which is here, but like I said, if you didn’t like the second link or the third link, you aren’t going to want to listen to that). Here’s a little more on that. Nope – I didn’t know a thing about it.

But if I had and I could, I would have asked Hillary Clinton directly, “Do you support people who say they support you forming groups that promote the active opposition of Barack Obama and advise people to vote for John McCain?”

Then again, I’m also working on a way to ask the Obama campaign how they feel about their supporters saying that sexism doesn’t exist and he doesn’t need to reach out to Democrats who didn’t vote for him.

How Australia sees it, if anyone cares.

For the record, here’s where I stated for the first time that I would not vote for John McCain: 1/15/07.

And re-stated that I would indeed vote for whomever the Dem nominee is: 2/13/08

And again said that I do not support the strategy (although I agree that there has been unacceptable sexism in this election cycle) employed by the Hillary Supporters Count Too Group.

Oh yeah, and here too, calling the approach, “…just dumb, not to mention counter-productive, naive and further aggravating the divide.”

And intimated distaste and disapproval of McCain in these posts:

McCain saying how can we beat the bitch – the Hillary Supporters Count Too don’t seem to remember this YouTube do they?

I think the group must also not know about McCain’s crappy choice of Straight Talk surrogates, who have serious sexism issues, like, ones that end them up in jail for sexual assault.

Where I write that Israel is not a deciding factor for me (for some Jews, they skew Clinton or McCain when they say that Israel is central to them – I’ve never been one of those)

And finally, more on the problem of not listening, all around. I’ve written about that for months.

And for the record, my father, who voted for Clinton in the primary but says he is sorry that he did, has just shrieked in my ear (Whaaaaaaaaaaaat??????????) when I asked, you would never vote for McCain, would you? (for those with reading comprehension problems, that means no – he is not voting for McCain under any circumstances). I gave him and my mom Ohio for Obama shirts (thank you, Kyle). I’ll have to take a photo of them the next time they’re out here.

If you still have questions about who I’ll vote for and support in the general election, well – you know – sit down, shut up and get with the program seems to be a popular rallying cry these days. How’s it workin’ for ya?
