“It was a prevailing sentiment that I felt at the conference and in the progressive community, that because I am Jewish, I cannot be an activist who supports Black Lives Matter or the LGBTQ community. When I heard that among my peers that ‘the Jews are oppressors and murderers—How can you care about students of color on campus when they’re murdering our people abroad?’—it quickly dawned on me that it wasn’t that they don’t like us because we’re pro-Israel—they don’t like us because we’re Jews. We were targeted.”

Every time somebody goes to the fainting couch, waving for the smelling salts, due to the nasty and uncollegial nature of the election, my impatience for the South Carolina primary grows another two sizes.

Man, you suckers ain't seen nothing yet. They play with knives dipped in strychnine and the blood of the newborn over there. SC politics is the good old fashioned blood sport of kings and racist shitbags.

If you can't handle New Hampshire nasty, you may as well just move to Sweden now.

Sun is shining, wind is blowing, the birds are getting microwaved fr dinner, and i have 8 more hours of unreserved gloating before I start freaking out over New Hampshire.

It's a beautiful day, everybody.

P.S.
Meanwhile, yes, despite what you may have heard - it's entirely true that the Democratic winner of Iowa was decided by coin toss. As I've said before and will, no doubt, say again. The biggest difference between reality and fiction is that fiction has to make sense.

Because, clearly, this election in general - and the Iowa caucuses in particular - weren't fucked in the head enough already, Iowa Democrats and Republicans have partnered up with Microsoft to use their newly developed app for the up-to-date immediate reporting of the precinct results.

Why, no. Nothing possibly could go wrong with this idea.
Just to make absolutely certain, I hope they also decide to install Windows 10 on every computer the night before the election.

SMOD take me now. My planet is ready.

Basically, there are two approaches to politics. One can look at the politicians (even the ones you like - in fact especially the ones you like) as the necessary evil, or one can see them as saviors.

Ultimately, I think, most people recognize the former PoV as the healthier one in the long run, but - human nature being what it is - it's hard to guard yourself from the latter. Pity. Because politicians will always disappoint you in the end.

The most horrifying tendency we have as a species, of course, is to go through the same sanctification process with celebrities.

But I am not worried.

President Kanye will save us all.

Is anybody using Trumpocalypse yet? I think I am gonna try to make Trumpocalypse happen...

(I was gonna talk about my predictions for Iowa, but I think that basically sums it up. I wish I was a drinking man)

In conclusion - TRUMPOCALYPSE!

(The fanciest, classiest, most luxurious Armageddon ever. The Lake of Fire is gold-plated. Very classy. So fancy your head will spin)

P.S.
Ahahaha. It's made it into the mainstream. Also, I think I found my new favorite Senator. I like that Sasse fellow. He's.... wait for it... sassy.
