It’s almost adorable how (outwardly) confident Establishment Dems are about taking back the White House in 2020, even though they are making the same derpy “blunders” that cost the Pantsuit Succubus the election back in 2016. You know, adorable in that want-to-give-them-a-2x4-off-the-cranium adorable. At this point, I don’t know what’s more off-putting — their whiny sense of entitlement to my vote or their bitchy, bossy fear politics.
But you must bend to our will! The most important thing is ousting Trump, not voting for the candidate who best represents your values! Submit! Submit!

It’s interesting to note the differences between the Progressive Bernie or Bust philosophy and the Establishment Dem Vote Blue No Matter Who battle cry. The former is a statement of intent stressing the autonomy of Independent voters, while the latter is a presumptuous admonition to vote for whatever neoliberal corporate puppet the DNC thrusts upon us, whether we are Party members or not.
Nope. Once again, not happening.
No matter how hard you try to dress your craptastic candidate up in pretty wrapping paper, Biden still stinks to high heaven. I know you poor, beleaguered neolibs just want to get back to brunch while the rest of us (the “privileged,” as you call the millions of us hanging by a thread) continue to rail against the decades-in-the-making shit show we have thanks to lesser-evilism cowardice such as this.
Come join us in the real world, where an oligarch is an oligarch, no matter the color of their tie.
Remember, the Democratic Party asserts that, as a private corporation, they are not bound by their own charter. They reserve the right to hand-pick the candidate of their (meaning the Plutocracy’s) choosing. In a nutshell, Democrats freely admit their primary process is just political theater. And yet, they never hesitate to strong-arm both Green New Deal Democrats and Independent Progressives.
