Elections 2023 and 2024

Also, from the article:

Minnesota Rep. Dean Phillips is the last nationally known Democrat still running against Biden

Is he, though? Nationally known, I mean.

At least we can all go back to not paying attention to Marianne Williamson…

I will say, as a pacifist, I quite like the idea of a Department of Peace. Unfortunately, I’m realistic enough to know such a department would never actually be that.

I agree… I guess in theory, you could argue that that is what the State Department is meant to do (even if that’s not explicit), but still… if we had a department of peace it would still be an arm of the empire…

Yup; the government branch in charge of waging war in Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four was literally named “The Ministry of Peace.” So I have to wonder about either the motives or the literary background of anyone who would make such a proposal in earnest. Williamson is an author so it’s hard to imagine it’s just ignorance.

Of metaphysical woowoo self help books, not literature. Like Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz before her, she’s another product of Oprah Winfrey’s. Oh well, at least Rachel Ray doesn’t seem to be completely terrible, so Oprah’s not batting 0.000.

Got to love going for the lowest of the lowest of the lowest vote pool.

They are scraping the bottom of the humanity barrel for votes.

Why isn’t the upper barrel winning I ask?

Wanna bet it’s funded by some Koch-like assholes who are hoping it draws dissatisfied progrssive voters with the Kennedy name and antivax BS? They would have to be the kind who don’t actually look into their candidate, but it’ll be tight enough to make a difference maybe. Thing is, I’ve seen polls suggesting he would pull as much or more from Il Douche. Most likely, i guess, is folks who just want chaos, figuring they can capitalize on it when the time comes.
