No, this isn't a "GBCW diary." All I'm doing with this post is admitting that there really is nothing more to say about Joe Biden or Donald Trump that I or someone else hasn't already said before. So I think I'm going to shut up about the Presidential race at least until there arises something new that needs to be said.

Among the "Left" crowd, readers are starting to see signs of Trump-weariness, a sort of "let's elect Biden and get it over with" attitude. Apparently Trump so fills people with rage that they're willing to forget some basic facts. Let's review:
If you have what Joe McCarthy called "fellow travelers" as your Facebook friends, you've heard this narrative: "Omigod we all have to vote for Joe Biden because Donald Trump is a FASCIST!" I wrote a diary about this topic back in April: "The Trump-As-Dictator narrative." In this old diary, I wrote:

Let me get straight to the point.
Before Biden is crowned, we MUST ask the following questions.
Although I will vote for Biden (holding my nose,) I do not think he has a chance to win. The last several weeks have made it very clear that the Democrats must win the White House, as well as the Senate. I am certain that Biden won’t get us there.
What set me off was this headline that I saw on a Facebook profile, "Bernie Sanders Asks Supporters to Donate to Democratic Party, 'Show Commitment to Party Unity.'" I'm against Democratic Party unity, because the Democrats at the top of the party hierarchy are a bunch of corporate commodities masquerading as politicians.
Thursday we could go to the Common Dreams website and read this piece by Norman Solomon:
Some say preventing the re-election of Trump isn't important. That amounts to ignoring political reality, an evasion with potentially vast consequences.
“If they’d wanted to win, they wouldn’t have run Hillary Clinton.”

I'm seeing this as a trickle now but it looks like it's going to be a flood soon. Here's the narrative. I'm reading this a lot on Facebook, usually in response to whenever someone brings up that they're not voting for Joe Biden. The narrative says: "You better vote for Joe Biden in November otherwise Donald Trump will become a dictator."
