“Police said Daniel Solomon told them his wife became angry over his “lack of voter participation” in last Tuesday’s presidential election and believed her family would face hardship as a result of Obama winning another term.”
Since Arizona’s electoral votes went to Romney, I’m not sure how this one missing vote — for either candidate — could possibly have a more adverse affect on their family than, say, having to pay for lawyers and deal with jail time.
I think she was angry with all the people who did not vote, and took her anger out on her husband.
I think I understand why she dislikes Obama then. It’s exactly as clear.
Son, you can’t fix stupid.
I’m somewhat agog at the belief system that believes ”her family would face hardship as a result of Obama winning another term” that would be more significant than having the father of that family run over by an SUV. Classic “Family Values” fail. Well, at least in Obama’s America, there’s more of a chance of him getting healthcare. And hopefully her getting some counseling.
Homosexuals devalue marriage. She had to do something.
They can’t devalue marriage if she does it first!
In the words of the great philosopher Eric Cartman, “Screw you guys. I’m going home.”
Well Diddy said: “vote or die”. Too soon?
> believed her family would face hardship as the result of Obama winning another term.
Well, she was right.
Actually, in the teeth of incipient Obammunism, she showed True American Spirit and made her own damn hardship, entirely by force of her own individual initiative and the power of her SUV.
Right now, a bald eagle wrapped in an American flag is weeping tears of pride.
How Country songy.
I’d run away if I were their dog.
She also ran over the bald eagle.
Voter Drive – you’re doing it wrong
“The Electrical College: I has a confuzed”, Holly Solomon
I’m all for encouraging people to vote, but this is going overboard. Or rather going overhusband.
You mean some tea-party-er has some sort of anger issue? I’m shocked!
Obvious caffeine withdrawal symptoms.
I bet the results of no voting made an impression on him.
Correction to the Romney volunteer manual:
Page 3, paragraph 2: Should say “You can volunteer to drive likely Republican voters who haven’t yet voted over to the polls” instead of “You can volunteer to drive over likely Republican voters who haven’t voted”
He was very tired.
Ugh, terrible puns like that really grind my gears. How could you transmission something like that? Now it’s going to be allover my dashboard.
Wheel try to curb the puns, just so you don’t blow a gasket.
That’s blow a seal.
/and leave my personal life out of this… (ARF!)
He told her to curb it.
I guess her philosophy was “If you don’t vote, you have no right to complain about me running over you.”
This, too, the lady will blame on Obama.
Some of these Republicans didn’t just drink the koolaid, they made their own batch and butt-chugged it!
What, pray tell, is butt-chugging?
Squirting alcohol (or any intoxicant) up your ass for faster loading via mucous membrane absorption. Sometimes lethal.
Enlightening. Thx. I think…
When they got in each other’s grills about voting, the husband was taken off guard by the fact that her’s was a solid piece of aluminum.
I wonder if she wasn’t particularly upset about him not sharing her Facebook postings…
Something about Arizona and mental illness expressed towards politics and politicians.
Then remember how Borat’s “Throw The Jew Down The Well” became a gleeful sing-along, in a bar in Arizona.
Very angry white people over there. Very, very sick and angry white people. Poisoned.
