To Whom it May Concern:
I care about you.
Vote for who you want, but please don’t try to make it something it isn’t.
You’re not more principled. You have an opinion. You think four years isn’t that long. You think Joe isn’t like the others. Whatever. It’s fine. Smell your own farts but don’t ask me if I have the expertise to smell yours and call them phenomenal.
You’re not doing us a favor. Your vote isn’t adorned with gold and says “special.” I went to one of them fancy booklearning schools too and it fit like a suit off the rack.
He has an even-keeled temperament and treats people with respect? The guy who was challenging the IQ of reporters and where they went to school?m”Look, fat?” The guy who said Republicans were going to put black people in chains?
The guy who takes credit for smearing Bork and is apologetic about not smearing Thomas enough? Seems like he’s awfully quick to cater to criticism by throwing people under the bus. Just like one of your problems with the current occupant.
Hey guys, we’ll go back to the great Obama years, where people like us were audited (lifelong bureaucrats are known for putting their pensions in danger by going rogue after decades), said we wanted people to die to prevent ACA, called Brown Shirts, be falsely accused of spitting on black Congressmen, spying on rivals. He’ll treat the media better than Trump, just ask James Rosen or Sharyl Atkisson or Fox News. Good times.
At least we won’t have a liar in the White House, instead, a guy with a common experience with everyone, despite being in government since age 25. Find me a personal anecdote, I’ll find you the tall tale. He not only helped with civil rights, he was lynched once. Maybe. Or that wasn’t him but his buddy Corn Pop.
“Look at his deep abiding faith” as he answers a question from a man of the cloth. Note to you, the Biden-curious, here is the template for a Joe Biden answer: I understand where you’re coming from, anecdote with an air of truthiness that probably has 25 percent factual content at most, smear of people not as empathetic as him. Same people who were suckered by Amy Klobuchar being polite to a pro-life Democrat who was willing to vote Democrat. Find the common denominator. I learned in my dating years that just because the pretty girl says hello, it doesn’t mean she’s interested in me.
“Mitch can stop him” — sure, until the midterms where we’re all villains for obstructing. “We can repeal anything once we’re in charge.” Boy, that sounds familiar.
Again, you can vote Trump out of office. But you’re not playing high-minded 4D chess either. So the condescending pretzel logic thinkpieces can stay a draft on your computer. The Democrats don’t want to read them either, judging from Donna Brazile’s remarks.
