Nobody for President!

As odd as it might be, there is a substantial number of people who are not too keen on any of the Presidential candidates.

Or maybe it's not so odd, given the quality of discourse and the apparent lack of truthiness of some of the major players. There's the Democratic front runner (for now), getting under a cloud. And the Republican front runner who conducts his campaign like a true rabble-rouser. And the others: ordinary scolds, loonies, proto-fascists, and so forth. One East Coast Governor who is running literally lives large. 

The disgruntled even are getting organized, like in years gone by:

Or supporting minority candidates, like Deez Nuts:



I worry that the little stickums people wear on election day will go from:


to this one:


Anyway, I'd like to join Fat Freddy's parade right now (sorry Bobby).  There's too much demagogery, too much playing on peoples' worst instincts, so much skirting of the issues. These are not running for some no-count Student Government President!

Sorry about my squawk . . . .

I don't know that politics has ever been nice. Even the founding fathers fought with each other.

I avoid the political stuff on my blog but this was perfect. I need the last sticker.

At the moment, it doesn't seem like we have a whole lot of hope, does it?

How come Donald Trump is so popular? Is it because he's the first presidential candidate in history who made menstruation a campaign issue?

Gorilla Bananas said...

P.S. I'm not sure about this, but Trump's hair might be similar to what Native American women used as tampons.

The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers? How fantastic! I haven't thought about them in years.
If none of the above was always on the list of candidates, it would win far too often.
