Title: The Long Road to the 2018 Midterms. Should I shoot myself now or later?
Post by: RottingCorpse on March 14, 2018, 11:54:54 AM
I stayed up to watch the Pennsylvania 18th Congressional race returns last night. Of course it's within 500 votes or whatever. Democrats are claiming a "moral victory" because Trump won it by 20 points in 2016. They're only hope is to win the House and the Senate and impeach the fuck out of Trump so we can spend the next thirty years trying to get Russian Cockroaches out of our kitchen.

Anyway, I need a job.

Just imagine if the Dems were a viable party with actual functional candidates!

I'm thinking of running for county supervisor just for a regular paycheck. That's how low the bar is for public office.

Yeah. You know, when you think about that... Yeah. We are deeply fucked and evil. Yet, when it comes to politics, we're too straight narrow, and human.

It's the problem of U.S. politics. You have to possess certain pathology to want that job, even at the local level. It's so connected to your response to people around you that you become this thing that is always "on" and always on the hunt for opportunity, press, and money...

Then again, maybe it's not that different rom what we do. The difference is, we think all that groveling is bullshit and do it as a means to an end. The political people get corrupted by it.
