"If You Can't Vote for Jesus, Why Vote at All?"

41-year-old co-host of The View Sherri Shepherd today admitted on her show that she has never voted. Not once. According to Shepherd, a known ignoramus, she just “never knew the dates or anything.” And, y’know, they didn’t know when she asked at McDonald’s, so maybe next time, voting.

“I never knew the date”. What the fuck is that? I’m pretty sure this woman is a pro at sitting in front of the television with the macaroni and cheese. Does she ever switch over to the news between commercials of “The 700 Club”? Honestly, it’s pretty much been the same date every fucking election.

Personally, I am glad she’s never voted. We have enough assholes out there who don’t know the issues or where the candidates stand. She would likely vote for Hillary on the basis that she liked the shoes she was wearing. I hope she does sit her fat ass home for this next one. Elections are important and we don’t need people who don’t know the world is flat mudding the waters.

Hear, hear, blah. I too am glad she has never voted. What kills me though is that not only women but aftican americans had to fight, hard, for the vote. She is so blase about the whole thing, that she couldn’t be bothered to find out the dates, much less inform herself over the issues. Someone take her kids away from her.

and blah, from the times i’ve seen sherri’s ramblings on youtube, she seems to lean right (explains her idiocy.)she’s always going on about jesus and family (i believe she stated once that if her son was gay, he would have to leave her house before he could date when they were discussing gay kids.) she’s not a hillary voter.

I have a low tolerance for ignorance.

My grandmother didn’t have the right to vote until she was almost 30 years old. She never missed an election and made sure her 5 daughters were aware of what it took to ensure they would have the same opportunity.

No. 11 blah says:

What’s just as insulting is that she tries to say that she didn’t have time to think about the world being flat or round because she was “busy feeding her child”. Well, bitch, unless you were breastfeeding your child in the middle of 3rd grade history, I’m pretty sure you had time to figure this shit out. I’m not a single mom, but I would find her to be a bad representation of single mothers who just don’t “have time” to be intelligent. They are not mutally exclusive and yet she almost gets off on not being intelligent because she was too busy with the Lord and her kid.

Hassan, no it’s shouldn’t. If you’re not smart enough to figure out the voting booth, then that is a clear indication that you shouldn’t be voting in the first place.

She is just part of the large percentage of people in this country who just don’t think the political process is worth thier time. She will sit back and bitch about the people in office, but she won’t do anything to get involved in the process.

The fact that more people voted in the last season of American Idol is a strong indicator that people like her are all around us.

I watched the show this morning and she was talking about absentee voting. She said she never knew the dates you were supposed to have registered by and sent in your ballot by because she had never voted. Not that she didn???t vote because she didn???t know the dates???she didn???t know the dates because she had never voted.

I feel like I spend a lot of time defending Sherri Shepherd. It???s not because I disagree that she says moronic stuff. But this one just isn???t fair.

No. 34 blah says:

icky, I’ve been in the military for 10 years, and I can tell you that we get a raise regardless if there is a Republican or a Democrat in the White House. The President isn’t the end all be all of the political spectrum. It’s called checks and balances for a reason. You’re right, you’re roommate was stupid.

He was right though about some people interjecting thier opinions to thier fellow service members. But when you think about it, I’m sure that probably happens in the civilian sector as well. The only problem is, is that we have a finer line to tow. If an officer in the military is caught talking shit about the President, they can face disciplinary actions because it is the President that gives them thier commission. It would be like talking shit about the guy who hired you.

No. 41 Mitsu says:

You know…I don’t really know the date either, but I’ve voted anyway. When the day comes near, there’s so much commotion about it it’s hard to miss. And I don’t even read the newspaper or watch television, yet I still manage to figure out when it’s election day. All you have to do is be able to read - that way, when you walk past the news stands and all the papers have these big headlines saying, “ELECTIONS TODAY” across the front, you know it’s time to vote. (Or not, in Sherri’s case.) As for registering to vote, you almost have to go out of your way to avoid it, they make it so easy these days. I think the last time I registered to vote it was because someone approached me in the parking lot of a gas station when I was on my way to use the restroom. Those people with the clipboards are like fleas - it’s nearly impossible to get rid of them, they’ve infested every public place.

In other words, I can’t believe what a colossal idiot this woman is, and the dumb excuses she expects us to believe. I almost don’t believe her - especially when it comes to the thing about not having thought about whether the world is flat. Does she actually expect us to believe that? Come on, that’s just preposterous. Really now.

Perhaps you idiots didn’t know that Jehovah Witnesses are not supposed to vote. They do not participate in politics, it’s secular. I think it’s a great thing that she’s now decided to vote, whatever her reasons are and that she lets people know. I’d rather have new people, educated and just being educated voting than not voting at all. Also, the deadline is for the primary NOT for the general election. The last day to register in CA for general election is 10/20/08!!!

Posted: Jan 29, 2008 at 9:54 pm
No. 52 blah says:

Eddy - who the fuck are you calling idiots?! It’s one thing to not participate in the voting process for religious reasons, it’s quite another thing to claim ignorance about not knowing when the day is. Do you think Jews know when Christmas is? Of course they do because it’s shoved down your fucking throat months in advance. Much like the election only worse.

The fact is Sheri is not educated. She’s a fucking moron. Do Jehova Witnesses also believe the world is flat? I’m amazed the bitch can even read the teleprompter. If she would have simply said that it was due to religious reasons, there wouldn’t be much if anything said on the subject. People like her should sit at home. The ignorant do not and should not spread thier cancerous stupidity around for everyone else to be infected with. The ramifications of people like her actually voting is how we got the current President.

If the world is flat, kindly sail the hell off.
