We Tell Jokes (But We Can’t Find it In Us to Laugh)

Here’s the joke:

This year, we will elect a candidate to be President of the United States of America either from the Republican or Democrat parties. The presumptive nominees from both parties (according to the most recent, published favorables) is disliked by the majority of Americans. While Trump’s numbers are a bit worse than Clinton’s, neither of them breaks 40% on the favorable side and both of them break 50% on the unfavorable side.

America simply doesn’t like these candidates and feel increasingly abused by their own parties.

Now, this is the good bit. Here’s the punchline:

America will still vote for one of those candidates. America is convinced that the President has to have an R or a D next to their name and would rather despise the person in the White House than to look around for a better, more trustworthy, more qualified option outside of the orthodoxy.

Hah hah hah.

That’s a good one.

    So 2 months later we now have declared candidates from the Libertarian and Green parties, neither of whom are any great improvement over the R or the D.

    For some time now I’ve been convinced that most pols, while they like being in government what with the power and the graft, would rather not be the poster child for holding the reins of power since this implies that they are somehow responsible for the mess.

      I just wonder what we’ve done to deserve this current crop of “leaders.” Whatever political sins we’ve committed, let’s atone now and get something better.
