Democrats Just Might Have to Go Nuclear in 2020

Can’t impeach him so you have to run against him.


Can’t run a Socialist. Still ten years too soon. Can’t run a deeply post-menopausal and hectoring fake-Indian schoolmarm. Too grating. Can’t run a man with a husband. Not ready for Gay Divorce in the Whitehouse. Can’t run an Asian dude with a penchant for emptying whipped cream into kneeling male supporters mouths. Too gay even with the guy with the husband in the racer. And can’t run an old white male billionaire. Too deja vu all over again and you don’t get to have big slushies.

None of these can win against an old white male billionaire.

Whatever then can a party formed of grievance, spite, hate, and bile do to unite them?   Only one answer…

Gentledykes, start your engines.

Campaign song?

    Backup campaign song for Hillary 2020. Zappa’s “I’m the Slime”.

    It’s not about winning. Haven’t you paid attention to the past half dozen elections or so?
    It’s about losing, or, voting against someone. Huh?
    How do you vote against someone? Well, you don’t, but that doesn’t stop people from saying they do, by way of voting for someone else. Last national election for example, sane people on both sides of the aisle couldn’t stand the idea of clinton so they (held their nose and) voted against her, by voting for trump. See how elections work hence forth, because all politicians are so detestable? You don’t choose who to vote FOR but rather who to vote AGAINST.

    So what do you do when ALL the contestants are detestable?

    You trash the system itself.
    Remember that little ditty about, it’s not who votes but rather who counts them?
    Notice all the skepticism over the last 20 years or so? Recounts, hangin’ chads, stolen ballots, ballots showing up out of nowhere, dead voters, felon voters, non-citizen voters, etc. Then, there’s that whole electoral college business, which at least half the people in this country think is a bad thing, afterall, it’s the one thing that sunk the communist warship last national election.

    There ya go. When it’s not possible to win, and the idea of the other guy winning is not imaginable, you make it impossible for him to win.

    Longer view: What happens in a country that is no longer capable of electing a so called “leader” from within?

    “Break out some Winchesters gentlemen!”

    I read the articles of impeachment. Abuse of power, and obstruction of congress.

    Shit, man! That sounds like the president’s job description.

    Ol Cankles. I don’t think she could take defeat again.

    Oh, I think a few hundred million donated to the Clinton Foundation could ease the pain.

    Steve in the Gate City;

    Zappa for the win!

    Many years ago I was an humble AB aboard a Military Sealift Command fleet oiler. There was a tradition, surely still ongoing, that once UNREP (underway replenishment- us providing one or two USN vessels alongside us with fuel, mail, toilet paper, etc.) was completed and the ships left station each oiler would blast out over the announcing system ship specific “breakaway music”, in our case Sinatra’s “New York, New York”.

    A change of command brought us a new Master, a rotund and jovially beatific Greek, who bore a rather disturbing scar on his forehead which looked about what you’d expect if someone had given him a good whack with a hatchet. Himself a “hawsepiper” (no academy, up through the ranks), he oft sought the input of the unlicensed on matters great and small. No fan of Frankie he, “Dyna-Moe Humm” was our alternative. The stunned, horrified faces on the faces of the squidly officers on the other bridge wing had us all howling for ages as we pulled away.

    Hilary can afford the up-market version.

    Captflee: Now THAT is a fine anecdote, well told. “Dynamoe Hum” is certainly one of my favorites of the “Overnite Sensation” album. Your shipmates must have arranged to play it loud enough to understand the lyrics…to get the full shock value. 🙂

    Of course almost any of the tracks off that album would do, for the nasty. “I’m The Slime” is appropriate for Hillary. But for pure funk, “Dirty Love” wins (at least for me). Here’s a live version with Bianca Odin.
