A Romney vote means rich, white San Franciscans can’t exercise in their home gyms

posted at 3:31 pm on October 30, 2012 by Mary Katharine Ham

This was in headlines, but I just can’t leave it alone. It’s too good. First the photo of the day, accompanying this San Francisco Chronicle piece, “Dems nervous, GOP upbeat as vote nears.”

Exercise

Photo credit: Liz Hafalia, The Chronicle

Get this: the presidential race is so close that rich, white San Franciscans are having trouble exercising in their home gyms or getting proper sleep at night. Take, for instance, the story of Obama campaign volunteer Kay Edelman:

For the past several weeks, the 60-year-old San Francisco resident has frequently bolted awake in the middle of the night, in “a panic attack,” she said. She darts for her computer and checks the latest polls. Some days she’s so distraught that she can’t exercise.

Every morning, she gets e-mails from friends who’ve been just as sleepless. Most are so tense, they can croak out only a few words. “Very anxious.” “Worried.”

“Nothing more needs to be said,” said Edelman, a retired educational administrator.

Actual quote from a man who didn’t sleep for two nights after the Denver debate:

“After I read Nate Silver the other day, I felt better,” Blume said.

And, there’s this scene from a San Francisco dinner party the night of that fateful debate performance:

Edelman hosted a bunch of friends to watch the debate over dinner. But after the first five minutes unfolded, nobody ate. Few spoke. “And right after it ended, everybody just got up and left,” she said.

Romney Derangement Syndrome is kicking in even before he’s elected.

I’m certainly not immune to worry over the election or the fate of the country, but let me pose a question for stressed-out liberals. Why do you continue to vote to make the federal government and the leaders at its helm an ever-more present and powerful part of every part of our lives when you know there’s a chance every four years a guy you won’t like will be at the helm? If it’s going to stress you out this much who has the levers of power, perhaps you should work toward making the levers less powerful?

And, say, Edelman and her friends look pretty comfortable. Shouldn’t President Obama be busy afflicting them?

I have a phobia too. It is an unreasonable fear of rats. But then, I am not delusional in my fear, and realize it is just a phobia.

California is NOT the lock for Obama that the Obama Administration or the Fifth column Treasonous Media want you to believe it is. I’m actually predicting that Obama loses California by 2 or 3 percent.

I was watching Dan Rather the night of the ’94 elections. He looked liked he had just gotten home early from work, only to find his wife wrapping up a “party” with his best friend. This time around we’ll have the opportunity to see Chris Matthews and friends diving for their meds while calling the rest of us racist, stupid, etc, while blaming the Koch brothers and Rupert Murdoch. Get the popcorn.

As a center-right undecided, I would say that the prospect of a “President” Mitt Willard Romney is something I wouldn’t wish on on anybody. Romney will usher in a new era of disrespect for the poor and the downtrodden including domesticated animals such as dogs, the gay, the religious, the creative, and the young.

D-fusit on October 30, 2012 at 3:40 PM

Silver, who correctly predicted 49 of the 50 states in the 2008 election, frequently updates the probability of which candidate will win the presidency. As of Friday, Silver predicted that Obama had a 74 percent chance of winning.

There were only four states within 2.5% in 2008. Nate Silver got three right. There’s nothing impressive about what he did in 2008, and even if there was, he has done it once.

He was off by almost 20 House seats in 2010. That’s ~33% of the change in that election. He stated there was a 20% chance that the Dems would hold the house. What stunning insight.

strictnein on October 30, 2012 at 3:42 PM

In the runup to the launch of my most recent web project, I was working days, at home on nights and weekends, was still two weeks behind schedule and knowing I was another week away from completion. That was when I was having trouble eating and sleeping: when I was spending nearly every waking moment trying to get my work done while in over my head, and every moment not on the job stressing about the fact that the job was still not done.

When you have deadline pressure and your job and your family are probably hanging in the balance, you can panic and lose sleep. If the wrong guy might end up wielding the unreasonable amount of power you have heaped on his office, then you need to re-evaluate your life. And probably your political philosophy, if you want my opinion.

If the biggest stress you have in your life is whether your retired self (at 60) wasted your volunteer hours on getting a bum re-elected…well I’d say you’re doing alright in life. Pretty sure there are millions of Americans who can’t sleep at night because they can’t put food on the table or provide for their familes.

Too funny! Romney is responsible for liberal neuroses now?

For three generations my family, along with me have voted democrat…this time, it is so obvious, none of us are supporting or voting for Obama…Mitt has shown extreme generosity and compassion, along with great business sense and an ability to create strong and powerful organizations, while working with other politicians across the aisle.
Sorry pal, but take another look, the democrats have moved onto another planet, and Mitt has moved into a position of compassion and helping other people.

democrats for change, democrats for Mitt…

You want to know how I know that Romney is going to win? I am confident until the hand wringers start giving the trolls bait. I don’t have to come here to be confident, in fact a lot of times there is an opposite effect and not because of the trolls, but because of the hand wringers worrying about places like Ohio because they are falling for the media’s and the trolls’ tricks instead of listening to the people who were born and raised in Ohio and the people who are on the ground.

The sole mission of trolls and the media is to depress our enthusiasm because they can see that theirs is depressed. Hand wringing just tells them to keep trying. The less hand wringing we have on this site the less likely the trolls will stick around. In fact there were a few times where I actually thought gumby would be gone for good, but he/she/it keeps getting fed by a hand wringer (not the people engaging it, but one who makes a statement like “if only ONE Ohio poll showed a lead I would feel better”).

This is a real story about the left being terrified, there is no need for hand wringing on our side.

SWalker on October 30, 2012 at 3:48 PM

While I’m at it, might as well mirror my thoughts from the headline thread, since it seemed to get a positive response:

The fact that anybody is having panic attacks and lack of sleep based on who the president is on any given day, illustrates the exact problem of having too much power at the federal level.

If it bothers you that much what your political adversary might do with the power of the office, the office shouldn’t have it in the first place.

If one man, elected every four years, is that critical to your day-to-day well-being, you’ve given away too much to him.

what i’ve been thinking for years! i swear i don’t get why libs don’t get it! your vote is only worthh 1/350 million in a national election, but in california it increases to 1/35 million, other states would be much greater! and if that’s not good enough for you, then consider shifting more power to the city level.

of course, the reason this isn’t acceptable is because libs want to force their rules onto everyone. living in an ultra-liberal city like san francisco isn’t enough for these people, they want the whole country to do what they do.

Well then you may miss it when they declare Mitt Romney the winner. If things swing Romney’s way, MSDNC will be insisting that they can’t call Oiho until the vote of Mrs. Swinson of Dayton Oiho is known. In short, they will hold off until they absolutely have no choice and then they’ll just say that “it appears” Romney won- leaving them plenty of room to scream vote manipulation in the post-election period.

Conversely, if it swings the way of the rat-eared wonder, they will use every pretense possible to call the election early.

Since the Red Debate, it’s all been whining about Mittens and how it’s so unfair… ZOMG! Liar! Racist! There was some hope about Biden.. Haven’t heard anything about him crushing Hottie lately though; I think that even they realize that didn’t work out.

I would be willing to bet that this lady could not begin to carry a political discussion with anyone of an opposing view. She has the mind of a child and is incapable of any sort of critical thinking. She and her little “self-help” group deserve their stress.

My coussin lived in SF. That apartment you see is costing a fortune. You could easily buy a nice house in Texas with the rent she’s putting out.

Speaking of Civil war, have any of you seen the disgusting ad out about the south rising up and a literal ‘war’ happening?

It’s a disgusting dispicable piece of crap…

I saw it once and can’t find it…

Edelman hosted a bunch of friends to watch the debate over dinner. But after the first five minutes unfolded, nobody ate. Few spoke. “And right after it ended, everybody just got up and left,” she said.

Well then, they were not there to watch the debate but to see the rat-eared wonder kill Mitt Romney with his super-superior intellect or something.

Face it, the left portrays Obama as some sort of super-cool urban hipster when in reality is like one of those hamsters in the Kia Soul ads. Posers in a cheap ugly vehicle pretending that they’re far more hip than they actually are. And if you doubt me call up one of those Kia ads and compare the ears to those of Obama.

This from the morons that are voting themselves a major tax increase in the already highest taxed state in the country, to pay for more union goon benefits and to educate more of Mexico’s children…
You just can’t make this sh*t up…

but let me pose a question for stressed-out liberals. Why do you continue to vote to make the federal government and the leaders at its helm an ever-more present and powerful part of every part of our lives when you know there’s a chance every four years a guy you won’t like will be at the helm?

And there’s more to it than that.

Much of what Odumbo has done in the last four years he did not have the power to do in the first place. When Congress wouldn’t give the baby what he wanted, he simply ordered it done. Very seldom in our history has a POTUS overstepped his power as Odumbo has done, repeatedly.

These liberals are fine with it simply because they agree with his position, but they’d howl about the Constitution if a GOP POTUS usurped authority in the same way.

All the other democrat voters are just interest groups used BY the White liberal elite to have more and more power…

This article is telling you something, but you guys don’t seem to be hearing it. I have been telling you as well,but most of the commentors here refuse to believe it. California is NOT the lock for Obama that the Obama Administration or the Fifth column Treasonous Media want you to believe it is. I’m actually predicting that Obama loses California by 2 or 3 percent.

SWalker on October 30, 2012 at 3:36 PM

I’m feeling the tide change as well and 90% of those I know will be pulling the lever for Romney. Many of those voted for Obama too.

But then again, I live in more or less conservative Orange County.

I hope you are right…it would be sweet to feel like we have a voice finally. Now what to do about the entrenched pigs in Sacramento?

Now Gumby is from Wisconsin – except when I think he said he was Missouri. So I guess SF would work as well.

Up here in Wisconsin were the taxes are insanely high, the teachers unions actually advise their retiring teachers to leave the state due to the high taxes.

True story.

As a center-right undecided, I would say that the prospect of a “President” Mitt Willard Romney is something I wouldn’t wish on on anybody. Romney will usher in a new era of disrespect for the poor and the downtrodden including domesticated animals such as dogs, the gay, the religious, the creative, and the young.

Our next four years would become a purpetual Quinton Tarantino pulp-horror starrring Michael Vick and the guy Bane from the new batman movie.

If you really believe you are a “center-right individual” then you need to get quickly help because your delusional.

Tues. night dessert will be so special. Kay better use the week she has left to get in shape to make up for the weeks she will spend curled on the floor in the fetal position.

Also, I liked the So. Park ref. You naughty. I just thought of something else. Maybe many Obama voters simply trusted the “Woodland critters”.

Reminds me of millionaire Celine Dion after Katrina:

“I wake up, I think of those people in New Orleans and I can barely drink my morning coffee.”

Poor things, poor poor things.

Yeah, she went on to talk about how those New Orleanians needed to loot for survival as images of the looters carting away designer clothing and flat screen TVs (even though there was no electricity at that point).

Your optimism is commendable, if misplaced. If you are proven correct however I will be delighted to bow to your prescience and owe you a beer next time you are in my part of the midwest.

I live in the Bay Area and 2012 doesn’t have the Hope and Change fever of 2008. No stores plastering iconic Obama posters on their front windows. Hardly any bumper stickers or yard signs can be found. I’ll take a drive thru Berkeley this weekend to check out ground zero of lefty fever to see how that looks. My instinct says they are also unmotivated.
