What Sort of "Ism" are You?

Vote against Hillary and it’s sexism, deny Obama’s hope and it’s racism, forget to vote for McCain and it’s ageism.  Frankly I’m sick of it.  Our criteria for choosing a candidate is our own concern and there’s no need for voters to justify themselves.  Candidates and media alike are so thin-skinned it’s a wonder sharp words don’t cut them to the bone.  Or perhaps they do, in which case some of the whining might be justified.

One thing is for sure:  You’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t, so pick one, stand by it, and be proud of your "ism"!  By the time this election’s over it may be the only thing you have left to cling to.
