I hate, hate, hate our election cycle. There have been approximately 5,678 debates between 274 democratic candidates in the last year or two. And I think 3 of the 274 candidates have dropped out only to be replaced by several other candidates. I mean, I think. My eyes have been glazing over at any political news in the past several weeks.
So we have finally reached the first primary/caucus which will last for the next 5 months (ending on June 7th with Puerto Rico’s primary which is kind of interesting because they don’t even get to vote in presidential elections.) So who do we like?
I’ve been a big supporter of Elizabeth Warren since a little after the dna debacle died down and after she realized that trying to AOC it with an instagram live video wasn’t her strength. I’m most likely voting for her in the MA primary which I think happens on Super Tuesday. (I’m sure someone will correct me if I’m wrong.)
Here’s the thing though. If Elizabeth Warren loses to Biden, or Bernie, or even someone I really can’t stand like Yang, you know who I’ll rage vote for? THE GODDAMN WINNER OF THE DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY BECAUSE AS IDIOTIC AS I AM, I’M NOT STUPID ENOUGH TO WANT TO THROW MY VOTE AWAY SO THAT WE CAN HAND OVER THE ELECTION TO ORANGE SHITLER FOR THE NEXT FOUR YEARS WITH LITERALLY NO ACCOUNTABILITY LEFT TO ANYBODY OR THING. My god people. Yes, it’s disappointing if your candidate doesn’t win but some perspective. Sometimes democracy is about voting for your candidate you love more than anything but other times it’s also about voting for the candidate who will prevent the walking worst case scenario from wreaking havoc for the next four years.
