I'm against the Establishment, money in politics, and rigging elections, so I'm voting for the guy who has been in Congress for thirty years, accepted $10,000 from Hillary Clinton's PAC in 2006, and made deals with the DNC to ensure he wouldn't have a Democratic challenger in his Senate races.
And if he doesn't win, I'm going to vote for the billionaire whose policies run contrary to literally everything I believe in.Salon:
P.S. I'm 16.
As several of you have pointed out, Politico has taken a well-deserved hatchet to Salon
. Unfortunately, they don't mention the supreme hypocrisy of a website attacking Hillary for giving speeches to Goldman Sachs, while not telling readers that the CEO of said website is a Goldman alum.
Still, there are some juicy nuggets to be found here...
It has developed a reputation for being not just sympathetic to Bernie Sanders, but overtly hostile to Hillary Clinton, unable to distinguish her from Donald Trump in the same way Ralph Nader saw no difference between Al Gore and George W. Bush in 2000. Salon contributor H.A. Goodman has written several columns for the publication with titles like “I wouldn’t vote for Dick Cheney, so I won’t vote for Hillary Clinton: An unrepentant only-Sanders voter fires back at critics” and “Please, FBI — you’re our last hope: The Democratic Party’s future rests upon your probe of Hillary Clinton’s emails.” (The columns spurred a debate in Salon’s newsroom after a staffer sent an email to colleagues saying Goodman’s articles reflected badly on the company.)
The more stinging critique is about the quality of what Salon publishes – and Goodman’s pieces in particular have reignited lamentations about the site’s downward spiral. Walsh and Miller have been outspoken on Twitter about some of the stories from the site, as have many others. Two guys even created a vicious parody account, @salondotcom, to mock Salon’s increasingly strident brand of leftism, with fake tweets like “Ten signs your cat might be racist” and “Should GMOs come with trigger warnings?”Unmitigated irresponsibility:
“It's really sad,” Talking Points Memo publisher Josh Marshall tweeted last month. “These Salon headlines are like the bastard child of World Net Daily and the LaRouche Times … In retrospect it's scary to think that Salon was maybe always just one @joanwalsh or @KerryLauerman away from derp oblivion.”
I think this guy speaks for most other Bernie-or-busters
Victor Vizcarra, 48, of Los Angeles, said he would much prefer Mr. Trump to Mrs. Clinton. Though he said he disagreed with some of Mr. Trump’s policies, he added that he had watched “The Apprentice” and expected that a Trump presidency would be more exciting than a “boring” Clinton administration.
“A dark side of me wants to see what happens if Trump is in,” said Mr. Vizcarra, who works in information technology. “There is going to be some kind of change, and even if it’s like a Nazi-type change, people are so drama-filled. They want to see stuff like that happen. It’s like reality TV. You don’t want to just see everybody be happy with each other. You want to see someone fighting somebody.”
what Adolf was like: Reality TV.
A couple of examples from here
A rigged election
Frustrated my destiny
Fuck you black people
Is a cunt, whore, and a bitch
I am not sexist
Obviously, I must add my own offerings...
My fans are stoners,
whiney white gamergaters,
and paranoid loons.
Never praise Clinton
or my bros will rain hellfire!
Watch out for my goons.
Master Donald knows
My skeletonized closet.
I dance to his tunes.
My wife ran a school,
but all she knows of money
she learned from cartoons.
Wait...haiku isn't supposed to rhyme, is it? I hope I have not offended the gods...
Black comrades, become
and do what we say.
If I fail, vote Trump!
Fascism, Marxism -- whatever
keeps Clinton at bay.
Just vote GOP
That'll show the DNC!
(Have I earned my pay?)
Sorry...rhyme keeps creeping in...
