    four years ago i was in an office writing about politics 

    trumpbut really i was writing about donald trump.

    back then he was obsessed over President Obama’s birth certificate.

    the thing im impressed about Trump is he was proved wrong about his concern about where the president was born, and yet it hasn’t hurt his popularity or perceived electability.

    many moons ago Howard Dean excitedly yelled funny and that disqualified him from being presidential.

    Trump is wrong all the time. laughably so. but conservative voters dont care. my question is: have they ever cared?

    they didnt care when W invaded iraq over WMDs and links to 9/11 that proved to be wrong. indeed, they re-elected him.

    they don’t care that so many of their leaders are wrong about climate change, the war on drugs, or how to tax the wealthy.

    all they care about is does that fucker have an (R) next to his name.

    will they keep the government away from their guns, will they fight the unfightable fight against abortions, and will they stop taxing us omg omg.

    these voters dont care if their anti-gay politicians turn out to be secretly gay. these voters dont care if their politicians are in the pocket of big business and provide them with more welfare than the poor.

    and weirdly, they dont care that their party’s politics hardly ever work.

    so here comes trump, a guy who recently supported Hillary Clinton, and they’re all about him.

    PLEASE KISS MY BABY! they cry.

    YOU HAVE WHAT WE ALL WANT! they scream

    (and whats that?)

    RATINGS!
