As long as you hold your nose while you vote, it doesn't taste quite so bitter...to you, I mean. To them, it just tastes like the oppression you voted to support.
Louis CK has a bit where he talks about flying in first class. He always does, and he often sees young men in the military flying to a connection that will take them to the ME. When he does, he thinks about giving them his seat, and it gives him a warm feeling inside. He never ACTUALLY gives them his seat, mind you, but he still considers himself a good person for simply having the thought (yet doing nothing).
I'm assuming that you got a chuckle out of that because you can relate.
It doesn't matter if Obama does the same thing we castigated Bush for doing, because Obama has goodness in his heart.
