People are mean about names.

that's why we have a 20-month contest. it gives the media time to make them household names. people said the same thing about "obama."

Personally I think the elections for POTUS are purposely drawn out so that the average person is heavily fatigued by Election Day and almost prone to be indifferent. The news media (on all sides) also profit a lot from the protracted circus, and it gives them more of a raison d'etre for minute-by-minute reporting.

It's like the MLB season, it could easily start later and finish sooner, and a lot of people would be perfectly happy with that, but doing that would generate less money for the people at the top.

See also: the 5+ day work week, which used to be longer. If people are so busy scrambling to keep their heads above water, they have less agency/autonomy, will think less clearly, and be less prone to "rebel" and reflect on "the big picture." Unless they've managed to find meaningful work, which our economy tends to discourage.

Okay after a week, living on the other side of the Atlantic and not really caring about this guy, it’s now clear he’s an asshole.

Didn’t take long...

Clearly you didn't post it hard enough. Sanders was still in your heart. This is how Trump got elected.

Buttgag seems horrible, maybe worse than milquetoast. Would not vote for him.

At least as bad as Trump, if not worse. And I know all you straight white boys have a lot to lose from another 4 years of Trump so your perspective is valued.

Guys, it's me. I'm the person who thinks everybody who isn't Bernie is worse than Trump. If Bernie isn't the nominee I'm going to vote for Trump, I'm going to send Trump money and I'm going to start a podcast called Put Pete in his Place.*

That is a great video, though. Apologies for not reading the first five pages of this thread.

Right this second, I bet Joe Biden is Christian side-hugging the shit out of Mike Pence. Also lightly brushing his nose thru Mike's hair.
