Confounded by chads? Commentary by Dennis Miller

*laughs til she's in tears*

Hey get this -- I want to talk about voting. Since the recall in California is coming up, we'll use that for purposes of our tutorial. The lesson to be learned is this: If you are too stupid to vote correctly, don't vote!

Now I know they are expecting a big turnout next week, especially now that Arianna Huffington has loosed up her three-and-a-half votes to freely roam the plains. You know, if you look up "unlikable" in the dictionary, well, I'm not going to tell you there�s an actual picture of her, but you will kinda imagine you see one... sorta.

Liberals in California quibble with anything to do with common sense and they now seem to be inferring that some of our citizens cannot navigate the narrow shoals of pushing a chad out with a sharp implement. It would appear that the liberal Ninth Circuit Court and other left-leaning groups herein feel that they can poke holes in anything unless of course it�s a punch card voting ballot.

Let me reiterate, if you�re such a complete zipper-head that you cannot maneuver your way around a chad, then guess what? I don't want you to vote because you'll vote stupid and I'm not talking about run of the mill stupidity here either. I'm talking about weapon-grade stupidity.

It's a chad. Deal with it. While you're at it, if you do happen to have a pipe cleaner for a brain stem, maybe you ought to practice getting in and out of the shower before you go to the polling place. Because you certainly don't want to put yourself in harm's way entering and exiting the steel vault that is the voting booth.

You know what? I don�t believe there are voters out there who can't figure out how to vote. I think for the most part if you're that big a moron you tend to stay home on election day and hurt yourself trying to TiVo the Quick Draw McGraw marathon on the cartoon channel because Baba Looey sounds just like the voice in your head.

Folks, I feel this is just another contrarian ACLU contrivance. I blame them for the fact, that California is now so far out of the main stream it's no longer considered contiguous. The liberals are so wrong in this case, I feel like they're gas-lighting me. They have somehow now managed to make empathy an intellectual exercise. Beware of that condescension and remember that liberals always feel your pain unless of course they caused it.

Got that?

Jonas fic snippet!!!

I am waaaay too excited about this.

He didn't wait for Enila to finish, shouldering past her with grim resolve, clenching his jaw as he sensed her following. "I am not going to get into this conversation," he said vehemently, refusing to look back.

"Why? Are you so afraid of questions?"

He stopped, turned, met her fire with some of his own. If his voice was too loud, if his words were too angry, anyone who noticed surely saw Enila and disregarded it all. "It has nothing to do with questions. The questions have all been asked and answered a thousand times and still no one's happy, because people like you don't like the answers we give."

Her eyes narrowed, sharpening into slivers of stone. "People like me?"

"Yes! People like you, all of you standing out there with your colors and your ridiculous chants. Embarrassments like you. Everyone knows the truth, Enila. The truth is that the Terreanians and Andaris are our enemies and have been for a very long time. The truth is that they would kill us all if we gave them the opportunity. Everyone knows the truth except for people like you."
