When shopping for vodka, I usually select the reputable brand in a glass bottle that’s on sale. I learned the hard way about plastic bottle vodka a long time ago.
Man, I didn’t anticipate writing about this one.
This isn’t James Comey’s fault. It’s not the fault of third parties. It’s absolutely not the fault of Bernie supporters. It’s hardly because of misogyny or sexism. It has little to do with Julian Assange and fuck all to do with Russian intervention.
For a few years now we’ve been ballyhooing the implosion of the republican party. The democratic party got out over it’s skis and beat them to the punch. I’m done with this goddamn party. Only Wasserman Schultz and her posse could have choreographed such a spectacular ballet just prior to such a disastrous face plant.
Uneducated white people (men in particular) elected this buffoon for one simple minded reason. Trump promised an abrupt change from the educated, moneyed elite’s control and economic suppression of their lives for profit. Nevermind that he had no intention of doing any such thing.
These people were absolutely correct to see Hillary Clinton as one of those elite and that’s where the DNC throat raped us all. They engaged in elaborate fuckery to force feed her to us while the one democrat who legitimately represented the actual change that all the voters craved regardless of political ideology or party affiliation built a smart and focused movement of monolithic proportion around that very change right in front of them.
Bernie Sanders’ earnest threat to business as usual scared them more than Donald Trump ever could. The DNC was neither blind or stupid, they were calculating and deliberate because they understood all too well that this man would undermine their avaricious grip on the 99%. With eyes wide open and hearts black and hardened, the democratic corporation didn’t just sell out democrats, they sold out America. They knew they’d do just fine in Trump’s fever swamp of ignorance, arrogance and incompetence.
It was crystal clear the people wanted change. Trump was selling it. Bernie was selling it. Hillary was not. It’s not piling on to point out that she’s scandal ridden, thoroughly lacking in transparency, authenticity and hopelessly unlikable. It’s not piling on to point out she cost us senate and house opportunities. It’s not piling on to point that Hillary and friends may have screwed the pooch on the supreme court for at least a generation.
She was the one candidate who could lose to Trump and the DNC knew it.
Now we have a republican senate, a republican congress and a republican fascist president. A perfect storm.
Our national nightmare begins.
I am horrified.
You should be too.
This was an epic fail.
The Democratic National Corporation committed criminal political malpractice. Party leaders must resign or be executed. A post mortem is in order and we need a pathologist without his head up his ass.
Drinks for my friends.
