Because it is Bitter, and Because it is my Politics

As a semi-rural Midwestern smallish-town resident who is prone to occasional bitterness and has no problem with that emotion, I am offended by the vilification of bitterness throughout this whole episode.

Bitterness can be a highly rational and appropriate response to the state of the world.

  1. I am totally pro-Obama and, of course, am also a bitter midwesterner. I can’t decide if I am mad at the blogger who rather sneakily caught and revealed the quotation, or at Obama for thinking he could give semi-public remarks that wouldn’t catch up to him. (Of course it goes without saying that I blame the media for loving this pointless gotcha crap… that is, when they do it at the expense of my candidate).

    Still, kudos for celebrating bitterness! Let us embrace the abjected emotions.
