Well, well, well! What do we have here? Good ol’ politicians up to their normal brand of tomfoolery, son. I guess one day is all I get in regards to not talking about some shenanigans going on in the world. But alas, here I am, ready to tackle the nonsense that is Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and the Democratic National Committee.
Now, for those who missed it, Wasserman Schultz has decided to step down from her post as the Chairperson of the DNC. This move comes after WikiLeaks ruined everyone’s weekend and leaked email exchanges between Wasserman Schultz and other members of the DNC. In these conversations, a variety of nefarious characters attempted to conceive of ways to derail Bernie Sanders’ bid for President. This was done, of course, to benefit their preferred pick, Mrs. Clinton. So, you mean to tell me, Bernie’s “crazy” ramblings about the system being rigged against him weren’t so preposterous after all? Ok, look, I’m no fool, son. I’m not naive to the idea of inner political machines cranking, unbeknownst to the general public. Conspiracy theories aren’t new to the political landscape, but c’mon son, this is waaaaaay too blatant, man. Why on Earth would these fools talk so openly about messing with the “democratic” process? Oh, so apparently, questioning Sanders’ Jewish heritage and threatening to “expose” him as an atheist is a premier example of the “fair” and “just” campaign system. All to impress some Southern Christians? Get the flying fuck out of here, bruh.
Listen, here’s my thing about this entire ordeal. It doesn’t really matter whether or not Bernie had a legitimate chance of winning the nomination. When American citizens go out and vote in all of these elections, we’d like to believe we’re contributing to a system that is being somewhat upfront with us. To inadvertently discover the “powers that be” are so willfully trying to circumvent the choice of the people is disheartening. To be real, though, I’m not even sure why I’m acting like I’m surprised by all of this. But damn man, no one really wants to believe the views of the people are useless. With that being said, it should come as no surprise that Bernie supporters aren’t with the shits at the Convention right now. How can anyone reasonably ask people to be onboard with the Democratic platform when we caught prominent members of the party with their hands in the cookie jar? The DNC can blame Russia all they want to for possibly leaking the emails, but maybe they should focus on the fact the emails were sent in the first place. Side bar, to be fair, Russia potentially meddling in our shit is a big problem, man. Someone tell Vladimir Putin to keep his ass on the sidelines, son. We don’t care if him and Donald Trump ride tandem bikes together.
In the end, I honestly don’t know what to say, man. Democracy is on some bullshit right now. I mean, I’m pretty sure it was always on some bullshit, but at least more seasoned politicians had the wherewithal to not have their foolishness so overtly out in the open. At this point, I’m not sure how anyone can feel justifiably okay with any of these Presidential candidates. I might as well just pack my family up and move to Barbados. Prime Ministers are looking a lot better than Presidents these days. Well, except for the folks running things over in England. That’s all I’ve got for today, good people. Adios.
