The great thing about all the money Bloom-Bloom's already thrown away on his bullshit campaign is that we can finally admit that the U.S. is down to exactly two jobs programs (or growth industries) : military shit and running for President. That's it.

It's a Venn Diagram of Dem hard-liners who sneer about "low-information voters" and Dem hard-liners who shriek that you can only talk about Trump's record if you never mention his Dem predecessors and all the dangerous shit they built/maintained and then handed over to him. 馃帹

HRC stans still screeching 3 years later that she got more votes = absolute zenith of adult-babyhood. It's as if I threw a bake sale & bragged that 4 people in a neighborhood of 500 each bought a cookie... & I also whined nonstop that I should've turned a profit but those other 496 ingrates failed me. :/

"Your cookies were stale & came from a box, Xeno."

Colbert and his imitators were only allowed a short leash from the beginning of their extremely lucrative careers. The fact that some of his faithful have only noticed the leash and its further shortening over the last year or so is actually funnier than anything he ever did on his corporate-owned-and-approved show. 馃檮

Oh, sure it's fun and all fielding shitty women candidates like Harris, Warren, and the stapler-hurling lady, then yelling about sexism and exclusionary thinking in order to guilt-trip anyone who can point out in detail why in fact they're all shitty .

Hey, remember how almost every last Democrat also voted to attack Iraq in the early Oughts? How almost none of them showed their faces at anti-war marches or condemned attacks by cops?

It's possible that the endless, roundly ignored overtures Greens made to him last time out persuaded some tiny fraction of his fans to cross the street for us. But without real exit polling there's no way to know if that happened, or how much difference it made in the final vote tally.

After lurking Over Yonder and reading some of the fallout on GP UK accounts about the election, it suddenly hit me: that last minute or so of Python's Argument Clinic is every election where the more Left-leaning party wants to support its own, but the more moderate party demands all the votes for itself...

Moderate: I'm sorry. I can't do anything for you unless I get your vote.

Green: Oh, all right. Here.

Moderate: Thank you. [twiddles thumbs]

Green: Well?

Moderate: Well, what?

Green: Can we talk about those multi-party accommodations now?

Moderate: I told you I can't do anything for you unless I get your vote.

Green: I just voted for you!

Moderate: No you didn't. That was my vote ALL ALONG! Look it's got *my name* checked. See?

Yeah, of course Club Neolib did this to Sanders & his flock in 2016 and its aftermath, too. And since shit flows downhill, if by some chance Sanders goes all the way this time, his entire flock will do this to us, too. With absolutely 0 sense of self-awareness. :/ (If Sanders loses, I suppose we might skim off 2-3% of them again.) :/ :/

Periodic reminder: Sanders The Socialist has had roughly 30-40 years to try building a movement outside the 2-party cage, but he never has. In fact, Sanders propagates the rhetoric of 3rd Party "spoiler" status & thus actively makes the growth of a multiparty system more difficult to achieve. He throws good money after bad for the sake of expediency in his staged tangos with the DP, & insists that others do as well.

Yippee Iowa I'm so excited. :/
