An actual polling company actually polled 853 actual registered voters to see if they would rather vote for Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton or a Giant Meteor hitting the earth. And the results were pretty interesting.
The Giant Meteor 2016 movement, also known as Sweet Meteor O’ Death or #SMOD16, began as a joke by those unhappy with their presidential choices. The Twitter account now boasts more than 20,000 followers. You can even get a bumper sticker. “Ready to Make an Impact, Tough on Putin & Iran,” the bio reads. “I’ll probably destroy all Earthly life.” Well at least it’s upfront about it.
So in the poll, which really happened, 43 percent of people would vote for Clinton, 38 percent for Trump and 13 percent would break for the giant meteor. 7 percent were undecided.
Ya know, if I didn’t love my kids and grand-kids, I’d find this funny.
“Nevertheless, I advised Sen. McCain that because her duties had never encompassed foreign policy or defense issues Gov. Palin would not be ready to be vice president on Jan. 20, 2009 — but that I believed she had the presence and wherewithal to grow into the position,” he wrote in The Wall Street Journal as the 2012 vice presidential process was underway. “I summed up her selection as ‘high risk, high reward.’ I stand by that advice.”
I still don’t know how I’ll vote, but Hillary will absolutely crush it in DE, so “my vote doesn’t matter(tm)” applies, here. At the beginning of the primaries she was the 17th or 18th worst candidate running. I’m going to look into whether we can write in our vote, or not (we use electronic voting, so possibly can’t).
At the every least, if Hillary is elected, she’s “free game” to you guys. Don’t expect me to defend her. Or her husband. I’m not some “disaffected youth/Bernie supporter”. I’ve voted in 11 POTUS elections, and Hillary vs. Trump is, by a large margin, the worst choice I’ve been presented.
I can understand younger voters viewing Hillary as the “here, break off a piece of ribbon candy from this dish” candidate, and tRump as the “old man yells at clouds” candidate. I just can’t understand why they’re our (likely) nominees. Maybe they think Bernis is yelling at clouds, too? I dunno.
The floor is yours (in more ways than one, think “can we get any lower?”, pardon the pun). Help me make sense of this madness…
Feel free to use the words “dismay” or “dismayed”. As in “i understand why you’re”…
But DON’T use the word “disappointed”, as in “I can understand why you’re disappointed.” !’ll rip you a new asshole for that.
I KNOW why I’m disappointed. We blew a hyooge opportunity, this year.
I’m assuming you guys know the rules, but just in case, which of the following (groups of 3) would you marry, who would you murder, and who would you bang?
The first one’s obviously the three remaining POTUS candidates:
tRump (“the Donald”)
Hitlary (Bill’s wife)
This one’s tougher:
I refuse to respond to this one:
Then there’s the somewhat obscene:
I’ll put the disclaimer here. THIS IS A GAME! HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOR! NO ONE IS CONSIDERING MURDERING ANYONE! Or having sex with any of the remaining POTUS candidates…
Bonus: Fake or True:
Donald J. Trumps success AS A BUSINESSMAN.
Bernie’s campaign is for the 99%.
Katy Perry’s tits.
Miley Cyrus’ tits.
Sarah Palin’s tits.
Carly Fiorna’s tits.
Carly Fieorina’s VP run.
My balls for hitting “publish” after typing Sarah Palin’s tits and Carly Fiorna’s tits, because who the fuck cares?
Please feel free to add your own.
But I don’t relate to the average mentality in the USA.
I remember you tales about your last girlfriend, so I’m wondering what you think about this:
Yeah, I know, I know. It’s Chomsky, so the RW loons will dismiss it as the worst of the left of the left. Plus, it’s on al Jazeera, so it’s a “muzzie” interview. And those same RW bastards won’t take responsibility for the fact that I will fight them to the end of my days because they hate me/fear me for everything I believe, everything about me. They will live on in some fantasy world where I want to hurt them. Republican voters, and especially Trump supporters, want someone to swing their big dick and stand down any opposition to PROTECT their frightened little selves.
I’m convinced the RW smells victory, and has become insane because of their fear that they’ll actually be in charge and fuck everything up like Bush did.
Having acknowledged the lunacy of the average Trump support/GOP voter, I found this interesting:
Renowned US academic Noam Chomsky says Bernie Sanders has the best policies of the Democratic presidential contenders, but does not have a real chance to win in a political system where elections are “mainly bought”. In the second part of an interview with Mehdi Hasan on Al Jazeera’s UpFront current affairs show, the MIT emeritus professor said he considered Sanders to be “basically a new dealer”. “I agree with him in a lot of things, not in other things,” Chomsky said. “I frankly think that in our system of mainly bought elections, he doesn’t have much of a chance.
“But if he were elected I think he would – of the current candidates – I think he’d be the one who would have, from my point of view, the best policies.”
Still, the majority of analysts still believe Clinton to be the likely presidential nominee to emerge from the Democratic primaries. If that was to happen, Chomsky told UpFront that he would absolutely vote for Clinton over any Republican, if he lived in a swing state.
“Oh absolutely… My vote would be against the Republican candidate,” said Chomsky, who lives in Massachusetts, a safe state for the Democrats.
Chomsky said there were clear differences between the two parties. “There are enormous differences,” he said. “Every Republican candidate is either a climate change denier or a sceptic who says we can’t do it. “What they are saying is, ‘Let’s destroy the world.’ Is that worth voting against? Yeah.“
I gleefully await the “Chomsky is an idiot” posts from “the right”.
Something tells me I’ll be waiting a while. They’ll be coming from the putative “left” because there’s nothing like snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
Edited to add the link.
DES MOINES, Iowa (The Borowitz Report)—An endorsement from former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is expected to widen Donald J. Trump’s already impressive lead among so-called “idiot voters,” an aide to the billionaire said on Tuesday.
While Trump was previously thought to have a lock on the idiot vote heading into the Iowa caucuses, a recent surge by Senator Ted Cruz, of Texas, has put the idiots back in play.
But even as the Trump campaign staffers celebrate the Palin endorsement, they recognize that they still have their work cut out for them to secure victory in Iowa. “Getting the idiots to support Trump is only half the battle,” the aide said. “Now we have to make sure that they make it to the caucuses without getting lost on the way.”
If Trump wins the GOP nomination, which is entirely possible given the idiocy of the GOP electorate (for whom I have ZERO respect), this could be the most interesting election ever.
A completely unqualified buffoon (Trump) vs. a Wall Street Masseuse (Clinton) or a Democratic Socialist with the guts to stand up for US (Sanders).
Lots of stories…
He was a stud.
Among my top 100 songs is “Under Pressure”:
PS – He did a great solo version:
PS _ He did a pretty good version with Queen, too…
Why can’t we give love one more chance?
