I work in the polls on election day so let's hope for no funny business. Pollsites are usually VERY boring affairs, but presidential elections are the exception, and the last thing we need is some fucker showing up and shouting and shooting up the place and making my job harder. I'll keep you all up-to-date, and by up-to-date I mean "during my break".

Them jokes though.
Quote from: Hillary Clinton
I promise, if elected, to be the youngest and healthiest woman president ever.
I see the cleavage woman, but while they are nice it's not amazing. Maybe I'm not seeing it. Oh, wait. I  think I see it now. Huh. Yeah no thats pretty hot. I'm curious if that was intentional.

I was wondering why Clinton didn't make a joke at the expense of Catholics, and then I realized what the context of this event is. I still woulda slipped a "darn schismatics" in there if I was up there, but that's me.

It fall under "influence peddling". Or patronage.

And it won't impress anyone because you guys have been somehow convinced that this is normal. Well that IS the new normal, and it's being exported all  over the world now.
Do you really think this is something Americans invented? If so, then wow, American exceptionalism strikes again, because Chinese were doing that corruption thing for three millennia and counting.

I'd pay money for that.

Election 2016: The Movie.

Starring Trump as Trump, some famous actor as Hillary, a really old guy as Bernie, and 100 secret service members who engage in close-quarters combat with Trumps minions, watch a newbie Secret Service member rise in ranks and eventually lead the assault on Trump Tower.

Honestly I am waiting for a GOOD parody videogame of it. Right now they haven't exactly hit a good level.

What I do find funny is that there is a game "The Political Machine 2016" that is kind of skewed towards Trump... Significantly.

You can actually defeat Hilary Clinton by spamming the airwaves about "probing Hilary's emails" and nothing else.

Now I say skewed towards Trump because none of the controversy surrounding him (the acres and acres of it) actually makes it into the game.
This is both hilarious and depressingly realistic at the same time. Without Trump's controversies, he really could've made it to the Presidency just by spamming the e-mails non-issue (and Benghazi, can't forget Benghazi).

Is it sad that I'd rather talk about some woman's impressive Breasts then the actual election?

Considering how much we seriously discuss the election, I think we're probably still okay if we take a laugh break every now and then (:

Honestly, I don't think Trump would have won without the sexual assault controversies. That was well after the first debate, and at that time his polls had already plummeted badly. It just took him from "fucked" to "really fucked".

You know, Clinton also has supporters that are likely incensed and fervent enough to cause violence. Hell, even Sanders probably has/had them. It's just a question of blame.

If you did your research you will know that there have been 2 riots protesting Trump.

Are you libidinous? Then no. The libido is older than political discussion.

uh yeah, both sides have violent people.  And racists, and sex offenders, and flat earthers, and octogenarians...

Trump has more violent and racist ones though.  Which isn't something to judge him on (judge his violent racist rhetoric instead)...  It's just something to be realistic about.

He probably has more flat earthers too but I haven't seen the data on that.  I still can't believe that's a real thing people believe.

To be fair though I am desperately hoping that the Hillsborough firebomb wasn't liberals.  Probably was, realistically.  At least they didn't hurt anyone.

What was the appeal of the candidates in the run-up to the primaries? If people don't like them, why promote them?

The primaries are skewed populations, because only about a tenth of voters actually bother, as opposed to half for the election.

America is undemocratic. Well, it's vaguely Democratic. Better than China or Russia, worse than most other western nations. Unless there's such a thing as "Democratic Oligarchy?"
