…is a sanctimonious, disingenuous gutless little fuck.
This thread was a discussion of the many problems which have already been documented about the Diebold touch-screen voting machines. Several of us expressed concern about the inaccuracies of the system and said that we wanted a more reliable system or at least a paper trail.
Then Shodan came slouching loathsomely into the thread and decided all by himself that Kerry supporters didn’t really care about accuracy and that we were only “laying the groundwork” for a defeat.
I said repeatedly that I care more about accuracy than I do about winning. I said I’d rather lose fairly than win unfairly. I also repeatedly asked Shodie if he wasn’t jus a little worried about the accuracy of these machines considering all the fuck ups they’ve already had.
Shodan’s response is to keep calling me a liar about what I really believe, insisting in a shrill, piping voice that I don’t give a shit about the integrity of our democracy and that I will only care about accuracy if I lose.
Shodie also has still not addressed questions about the reliability of the machines.
That’s because he’s a fucking moral and intellectual coward who has no real defense and so his only recourse is to tell himself that the other side doesn’t really care. If the other side DOES care, he has no fucking argument and his worldview collapses. He simply can’t accept that someone can be a passionate liberal and still give a fuck about the integrity of the democratic system.
It’s also a way to spinelessly avoid the real question and seems to completely MISS the point that some of us are asking NOW for a system that we know will be accurate. We are not asking retroactively. We want it NOW before the election. If not a new system we want a paper trail. So how does tha jibe with Shodan’s self-delusion about us not wanting a fair count? Shodan is the only one who DOESN’T seem to want a fair fight.
Please take note also at the incredibly unwarranted sanctimony in Shodan’s posts. Notice how he smugly sets himself up as an impartial observer of events while all his opponents in the debate are dishonest, insincere partisan shills. Notice that his evidence for this scenario is his own personal say-so.
Shodan is one of the most mindless, un-nuanced, predictable, robotic, party-line Republicans drones on this board. His credibility for calling partsanship on others is fucking non-existent, yet he has decided all by himself what his opponents do and do not really care about and what they SAY they care about is of no concern to Shodan. He has his worldview and his worldview must not be disturbed or his fucking head will explode.
And what kind of chickenshit debate tactic is it to keep telling your opponent that he doesn’t really believe what he says he believes?
Shodan, put up or shut up, you fucking little prick. I am saying NOW that I want a machine that is accurate, and that my own political ideology is not as important to me as the democratic system itself. Can you say the same thing, you little fuck? I don’t think so. Are you willing to call RIGHT NOW for a system that’s 100% accurate or are you willing to rely on a system with demonstrated flaws. Your answer to this will dictate your motives which is why you won’t answer it.
Fuck you, Shodan.
