Things I Wish Would Go Away

     It seems that every single diary includes tired old themes, arguments, and general things that have gotten annoying.  Not to say that all or even most diaries/comments fall into this category, but in every diary, it seems they are present.  Some things I will be happy to never read again...

-Clintonistas
-Obamabots
-Any other not so clever way to dehumanize a candidate's supporters
-Any poll posted that shows less than a 3 point movement
-Any single daily tracking poll numbers
-The ever present TR abuse from so many repeat offenders
-References to "the math"
-References to "momentum"
-Arguments over who won texas
-"Electability" (not that it isn't important, its just impossible to prove)
-"If my candidate doesn't win, I'm voting for McCain bc I'm a petulant bastard"
-Any not so clever pun on the word hope
-"Thrown under a Bus"
-Any credence given to Fox News (sorry HRC people)
-The media/blogs/party leaders are all biased!
-Florida and Michigan will be seated!  Otherwise, its DISENFRANCHISEMENT
-Florida and Michigan will not be seated!  THEY CHEATED
-Primary/Caucus X doesn't matter because (its too small/red/big/blue/not a state/didn't campaign there/campaigned there too much)
-The republicans want to run against...
-The phrase "doesn't get it"
-Arguments over who's a more loyal democrat
-Anyone who uses capital letters or bolded letters to make their point
-Any phrase, for or against, that refers to Sen. Clinton as a "girl"
-The whole racist/race baiting, sexist/sex baiting arguments

Anything that I missed?

sucks to be you I guess

What I hate are diaries and comments by people who believe they are "above it all".

Re: Things I Wish Would Go Away

Assertions that Candidate X doesn't need (African American, Catholic, Latino, working class, independent, older white female, Jewish, or young voters - fill in the blank yourself) because he or she brings so many new (African American, Catholic, Latino, working class, independent, older white female, Jewish, or young voters) to the polls. Or that Candidate X is a better choice than Candidate Y because, if he or she doesn't get the nomination, (African American, Catholic, Latino, working class, independent, older white female, Jewish, or young voters) will stay home or vote for McCain.
