Eschew Obfuscation –
By Michael Douglass –
I’ve been pretty skeptical about the substantive differences between our two political parties for awhile.
Having said that, I still believe the Democratic party is the lesser of two evils. So it it makes complete angry sense to me to avail myself of every opportunity to to mock, impugn, malign, insult and deride the spectacularly ridiculous and transparent antics of Republicans. If for no other reason than to put Democrats on notice that we smell bullshit and if we ever manage to wade our way through all of the Republican fuckery foisted on us by the hour, Democrats need to get that they are next.
It only makes sense to staunch blood from the most prolific wound first.
I fully expected Hillary to maintain calm and control during the Benghazi burlesque. She did not disappoint. She has balls. There’s no other way to say it. She was playing chess and the Republicans on the committee dabbled at checkers. She is whip smart and solid. She played them and I don’t doubt she actually set them up. With grace and aplomb. She flat out outlasted them. It was an awesome display of composure and command of facts, specifics and patience.
She crushed it.
I am enthusiastic about Bernie Sanders for reasons I think are pretty obvious. But Hillary Clinton doesn’t suck. I will vote for her in the general if that’s the lay of the land come next summer. I’ll feel better about it because of her performance today.
If we’re ever actually able to make the entire Republican bench cry in front of their mouth breathing, knuckle dragging base, it will be Hillary under the next microscope, not Bernie Sanders.
So here’s my point, Bernie Sanders’ influence on this election has been nothing but a net positive. He absolutely has moved the entire conversation further left. He alone is responsible for Hillary’s “coming out” on Keystone and more importantly, the TPP. I do not trust her newfound positions on these things but it is measurable progress nonetheless. She is too cozy with the puppet masters and that is a fact.
What it amounts to is whether we we move forward or keep from sliding back. It’s either a political and social revolution or not losing too much more ground for at least four more years. Maybe we’ll be more sick of this crap after that long but I doubt it. The time is now. It’s pretty plain that none of these jackasses on the Republican bench stands a chance against pinball wizards like Hillary or Bernie.
Imagine Trump or Carson trying to pile on against either of them.
Light sabers versus cap pistols.
It makes me wish I was a comedian.
I can’t wait.
It’s ours to lose.
Drinks for my friends.
