No Bernie isn’t dropping out because he’s Bernie. He’s not Perot or Huckabee, he’s an ideologue who actually likes endlessly talking about issues. He deserves no further discussion other than to know he will eventually concede and enthusiastically support Joe Biden.
A few things:
First, the last few weeks should have shown us all that our President is totally unprepared to lead in a crisis, a liar, and an existential threat to our Democracy. His re-election would be a dangerous and unpredictable event.
So it appalls me that our friends would throw their vote away when every vote is needed to take our country back from the mob like family that currently runs it. This is a binary choice between Biden and a wannabe dictator. Write in votes for a wimpy Republican who occasionally flirts with a moral greatness don’t count, unless you count an obsessive need to be noticed by a shrinking group of faceless political junkies.
Look at it this way, the Republican Party and the Nation represent that waitress that Ted Kennedy had sex with so many years ago on the floor of that French restaurant (you know, the time Ted single handily destroyed the moral fiber of America by having consensual sex in a public place), and Donald Trump is Ted Kennedy, only Donald is fucking America and it isn’t consensual by any possible measure.
So, to, even in a primary, throw your vote away on a write-in is the height of white privilege. “A second Trump term can’t hurt me,” right? But I can certainly get the attention I crave by endlessly discussing who I may or may not vote for right up to the fall election. Pathetic on so many different levels.
Second, I was “heartened” to see turnout in Florida and Arizona was up significantly, in spite of the virus fears. Two swing states with a fired up Democratic base. It will be a pleasure to door knock this fall.
Still counting primary ballots here in California. More about that later.
Take care and wash your hands, Donald Trump and the Republican Party will get us all killed and we can’t let that happen….
