The Least of Four Evils


John Oliver on the fringe candidates, Johnson and Stein.

I’ll be on the road tomorrow; will check in tomorrow night if all goes well.

    That music…oh god, that music…

    Also, “mountain molester” was pretty funny.

    John Oliver really makes his point well, and it’s funny.

    As a long-time Green in a safe Blue State, I expected to vote for Jill Stein, but I’m not so sure now. Two things:

    1. She’s pissed me off by repeating Nader’s mistakes:
    – pretending she can win
    – campaigning hard in swing states
    – attacking Clinton as much as Trump, perhaps more.
    – some pandering (anti-vaxxers)

    2. TWIL pointed out that a big win for HRC in the national popular vote would:
    – give her a “mandate”
    – undermine Trump’s BS about rigged elections (maybe – facts don’t matter)
    – decrease the probability of armed insurrection by the alt-right

    The problem with giving Clinton a “mandate” is that she might use it dangerously.

    It’s a weird election. Stein is someone who should be smart but apparently lacks any vestige of common sense (I’ve met a few academics like that). Johnson is a dimwit, period. Trump is a classic example of Dunnng-Krueger with added idiocy. Clinton is a normal person. The only one in the race.

    Last night I saw a broadcast of an interview between Merv Griffin and Richard Nixon which was done in late December 1967, shortly before Nixon announced he would run in 1968. Nixon looked like quite a statesman, shoot, he looked like he was Winston Friggin Churchill compared to You Know Who. I sat there wishing that he were running today.

    Anyone else see the interview?

    Makes one wonder. Do comedians make the best (as in the most honestly insightful) pundits? And then, why are so few of them wingnuts?

    Most wingnuts have no sense of humor whatsoever.

    Yeah, I just told some at one of their blogs that Ailes’ boy Shepherd Smith just came out as gay. No comeback, no sense of irony… Silence. They just acted like it never happened. Maybe they’re waiting for the blog comment bully to arrive. Then it’ll be a bunch of mindless name calling… which I guess for them, is humor.

    You don’t want to be drinking anything – especially for the last 60 seconds.

    Who’s making popcorn?
