Matt asked me to post this one. Back during the election I started this group satirizing Joe Biden. Apparently, some people like Joe Biden. Claire posts on the groups wall, furious because we've been spamming Biden's page. This is the conversation that took place after that comment:

Claire, I'm not an ignorant hick. I can't stand McCain either. So if he loses, I couldn't care less. The election system is a joke, so I'm having fun with it. you should try having fun sometime.

personally i think the way the entire country is run is a total joke, but i am a collective anarchist.
sorry if i offended you, but you know just as well as i do that there are a ton of ignorant people in there who are only supporting mccain because mommy and daddy said so.
honestly i think joe biden is the most competent candidate out there right now, so the group just set me off.
also, sadly, i dont have a lot of fun. i spend about 50% of my time working to fix the problems in this world, and that includes trips to west africa to work in an orphanage, its not usually very "fun".

the blog manifesto.
the purpose of sme is simply this: to overthrow the capitalist hegemony that has a stranglehold on our beautiful, multiethnic society. contributors are asked to take part in this, our overriding mission, so the people of the green earth can breathe together in the clean air of progressive politics and non-judgmentalism. each blog post must bask in the sunlight of earnest expression, never falling into the trap of satire or parody. our aim is clarity and verisimilitude; our mission is truth and the propagation of it. the blog is the perfect place to post your old family videos, homophobic video blogs, another blog's material, awkward, poorly-drawn sketches, halo reach updates, or unexplained/irrelevant wikipedia articles--sme is home to the entire eclectic conflation that is the internet. if there is one thing entirely intolerable to the editors of sme, it is sarcasm. there is simply no room in this blog for sarcastic, humorous, and reference driven posts. if you are among those responsible for such garbage, please leave.
