I feel like Brian Williams when he talked about Donald Trump’s revolution foolishness last night: I really don’t want to report on this but since it’s out there I figure you should know.
I thought it would have been enough that virtually all of black Twitter went in on Stacey Dash last night when President Obama’s re-election was announced. But as these things usually among the unemployed D-list celebrity ilk who have too much time on their hands, the former “Single Ladies” actress is back asking for more shade/attention with a 1,344-word essay about why she voted for Mitt Romney and shouldn’t be judged for it.
Stacey sent the letter to TMZ. See the thirst already? The majority of the essay was written before the election was determined and then she added a little aside afterward acknowledging President Obama’s win. Since we don’t have space for all her nonsense, how about we just look at the highlights from the essay:
At the end of the day we are in this together. This is Our American Family. I do not want to be a part of the hateful voices insulting each other. I want to be a part of the voices that helps shape the future. Don’t you? Perhaps I publically [sic] endorsed Romney from a slightly naive place, thinking that I could speak my voice without being criticized in such racially charged and hateful tones.
People get it wrong. My vote for Romney isn’t a vote against Obama. That’s not how full participants in the democratic process operate. We vote for candidates and we vote for issues.
I’ve been fortunate enough in my career to have earned a considerable income. I am a fiscal conservative. I like the simplicity of the plan to lower taxes. I feel I’ve paid out a substantial amount over the 20 plus years I’ve been working. I’m also a woman. And as a single Mother who happens to be half-Bajan and half-Mexican, I have concerns, which cover many topics and issues…
I also don’t understand why more people aren’t acknowledging the good that has come about thanks to Romney’s Massachusetts medical coverage for all citizens. In addition, Romney’s
business acumen is sterling. Our country needs a savvy business manager with the ability to work on both sides of the aisle. Paul Ryan is another brilliant mind with a viable plan for the economy of this country. They’ve injected so much energy into the race. We need that ambition and focus to get our country back on its feet…
In the event that Obama is re-elected I expect them to work a whole lot harder to bridge the divide between political parties, end the gridlock and get America back to work! Welfare reform
is also in order. An elderly woman stands in the same grocery line pinching pennies to buy a can of soup while a woman is buying marshmallow fluff with food stamps. As times have changed, welfare policy needs to keep stride, just like every other issue.
Just as I was about to ask why she felt the need to write this letter in the first place, as if anyone is really checking for a Stacey Dash election day free-write, I came to the best line in her 1300-word prose:
Ultimately I know that what Stacey Dash thinks about who will be the next president of the United States isn’t that important in the scheme of things-but I feel a desperation for the country.
I think that’s desperation over how she’ll manage to pay taxes with no income since her attitude keeps costing her jobs. Does she not realize no one will ever take her political stance seriously in a Baywatch swimsuit?In 2016, just keep your thoughts to yourself Stacey. Not because you’re a republican, but because you are clueless.
