Is This Campaign Real? Is This Happening?
This entire campaign has got to be some kind of hallucination.
2000 people outside CNN in Hollywood, protesting the free media Trump has received by the network, compared to Bernie. That's not news. Did that even happen? Did that tree even fall in that forest? Maybe we need to make a louder noise.
18,000 in the Bronx to see a goddamn political phenomenon of massive proportions. A multi-cultural Lovefest of engaged citizens. 18,000 people and not one arrest. The cops thought they were hallucinating. But that was not news on MSNBC, which for months has carried Trump speeches in their entirety.
Now, if that rally was for Trump, or even Clinton, do you think MSNBC might have carried a few minutes live? Nah.
The "news." Operating on the same logic that brings us reality TV garbage. For eyeballs. To watch a buffoon, who incites violence-causing racial animus, a celebrity with a long history of sleaze and self-promotion. Yes, it is a train wreck. It is for gawkers. It is not news.
The debate about debates. Big news all weekend. Hillary proposes the night of the NCAA Finals, the night before taxes are due, or the morning after taxes are due on Good Morning America, moderated by a man whose career was made by association with her political dynasty. And another proposal was on a day Benrie already has permitted for another epic NYC Lovefest. But she says Bernie "should stop playing games." The media calls it a wash... Hahaha And Clinron is the one we are supposed to take seriously.
You, and me, and the rest of us, we need to check ourselves, as we are losing our reference points a bit during this election. On TV, I hear nothing about policy. Ever. The media acts like Flint style infrastructure, stagnant wages, and massive concentrations of wealth are normal for this country. They act like one party not considering a Supreme Court nominee is not that big a deal. After all, after all the obstruction that has become the new normal, I guess now a party has to have the Presidency and 60 Senators to fill a court vacancy. That'll be helpful.
The Serious People really have climbed into the pod, and they must be almost ready to hit the bunkers underneath the Denver Airport.
There is NO WAY they can expect the center to hold when they long ago stopped acting like they care. The "adults" are really a bunch of spoiled babies. They didn't have to fight in the war, they didn't have to suffer through a depression. THEY GREW UP ON THE TUBE. 50s TV. HOLY SHIT!! They still live in 1962, and have been trying to get back there since JFK went down.
Clinton vs Trump:
The Unwanted vs Unbelievably Unfit
Clinton vs Cruz:
The Unwanted vs Christo-Fascist Nightmare
Clinton vs Kasich:
The Unwanted vs future President Kasich
Clinton vs Ryan:
How could this even really happen? No fuckin way
Is this really the set-up? Because there is one candidate that is considered honest and trustworthy. One that cannot be bought with money or favor. One that made the right decision on the biggest foreign policy decision ever, when the Serious People got it wrong. One that understands that our current economy is undermining democracy, and is NOT normal. One that has an army of motivated, informed, and compassionate backers, an army that represents the future. The first generation since the baby boomers to be a yuuuuge population force, and is ready to start cleaning up the mess. If only these fuckin Eagles fans would let them.
