Talk about presumptuous.

Dear MoveOn member,

Imagine showing up on November 4th to cast your history-making vote for Barack Obama—only to be turned away because you aren’t properly registered.

Think it can’t happen to you? Don’t be so sure. There are a bunch of reasons your registration might not be up to date, even if you think it is.

Take one minute right now to double-check your registration using our cool web tool, VotePoke. Click here.

This is going to be an amazing, exciting, once-in-a-lifetime election. You don’t want to have to tell your grandkids you wanted to vote for Barack Obama, but didn’t actually get to do it.

C’mon, now MoveOn – did you learn nothing from your half-assed “endorsement” of Obama over Clinton? As I recall, some of your “members” (i.e., email subscribers) were annoyed enough over your proselytizing that you had to send out an extra-special email to smooth ruffled feathers. Now y’all are just assuming that I’ll vote for Obama? I mean, I probably will, but still. Talk about obnoxious.

By the by, if anyone would like to check the validity of their voter registration, here be the link. It’s actually not a bad idea; too bad MoveOn had to mar it by telling us bitchez how we’d better f’in vote.

This shit is really getting tiresome.

Just STFU, MoveOn.org.

I mean really. Am I seriously supposed to care that 70% of an unspecified number of people in your address book prefer Obama over Clinton? I got the poll too, but there wasn’t a little check box for Edwards or Kucinich – or even one for Gravel who, last I checked, is still a Dem and is still in the race – so I trashed your email without voting. And now I’m supposed to give two shits that the suckers who did respond like Obama? Meh.

And shame on the msm, what with their misleading headlines and hack reporting:

Powerful Political Action Group Backs Barack
Moveon.org’s 3.2 Million Members Vote Obama

Try again. While 3.2 million people might belong to MoveOn.org’s email list, only a fraction of those – hundreds of thousands, according to MoveOn.org – actually cared enough to vote. Of those, 70.4% voted to endorse Obama, while 29.6% went for Clinton.

So no, “Moveon.org’s 3.2 Million Members did not all Vote Obama.” A few hundred thousand people just like me (i.e., regular schlubs) voted for him – and most members did not even bother to reply to such a stoopoid poll in the first place.

I pity the fool who’s swayed by such a non-issue. Do your own f’in research.
