Sometimes I get confused whether I’m asleep and dreaming or awake and hallucinating. Not that it’s an advancing middle age kind of thing, it’s the weirdest damned presidential political cycle I’ve ever seen in my increasingly long lifetime.
I was there in front of the TV for Nixon’s famous “Checkers Speech,” although I really only remember duck-and-cover scares and the assassination.
But I don’t ever remember anything like this cycle’s election. Late on Tuesday, I realized this:
The wife of the Democratic president who was famous for not having sex with that woman — not that woman, the other woman, only he did — finally beat the elderly socialist enough to make it look like she’s going win like we all thought she would win. So now, it looks pretty certain that she’s running against the billionaire Republican fascist who used his reality TV-star persona to snatch the GOP nomination from the religious extremist, Canadian-born Cuban senator from Texas, who’s the most hated man in congress and suspected in Florida of being the Zodiac Killer.
And here in Colorado? Republicans vastly preferred the Lone Star Canadian Zodiac Killer’s Sharia Law proposal over the orange fascist’s final solution for Mexicans and Muslims. Supporters of Sen. Smug have been gloating over how stupid billionaire Trumpah Lumpah and his gang is because they didn’t know GOP presidential caucus rules for this state and that party during this cycle allow the sneakiest candidate to steal all the candidates while the looooooserrrrr watches.
Colorado Democrats leaned toward drinking up Grampa’s Commie-Lite Kool-Aid punch, and not so much for the woman candidate that women don’t like. And now, everybody says they’re a winner and pretty much assured a White House victory.
Wake me up when it’s really all over.
