DON'T FORGET TO "LIKE" BEE-OTCH OF THE DAY ON FACEBOOK!
Name: The Democratic Party
Occupation: the supposed left wing
Last Seen: Washington, DC
Bee-otched For: getting Hillary nominated
Well, it's official... Kinda.
On Tuesday morning, just hours before the last big state primaries in the west, the Democratic Party announced that thanks to superdelegates, Hillary Clinton had been chosen as the presumptive nominee for the party. IMO, that's nothing more than a bitch move.
Since Hillary's nomination, the media has been happy that she's the first female presidential nominee in this country's history. OK, so the media is wrong since Jill Stein of the Green Party is that party's nominee. SMH. As for Bernie Sanders, he's not giving up since he believes that the media is doing everything in their power to tell people that he's toast. Before the Dems announced Clinton's "win", Bernie had a slight lead over Hillary in California. Hillary ended up winning in that state.
Of course, you can thank people like Debbie Wasserman Schultz for pushing Hillary onto the masses. Because of her, Bernie is being thrown to the wolves and we're now stuck with two people nobody likes going after each other in the 2016 presidential election.
True, there's a chance that Bernie could run as an independent, but to me, it'll keep the left divided and the real winner will end up being Donald Trump. Remember what happened in 2000? I didn't vote simply because I couldn't stand either Bush or Al Gore's running mate, the right-leaning Joe Lieberman. We all knew what happened: fake wars and a bottomed-out economy.
The National Conventions haven't been held yet, so it might not be a Clinton-Trump ticket, at least yet. If I have to, yes, I'll vote for Hillary. But will I endorse her? No. To me, voting for somebody because he or she's the lesser of all the evils is like marrying the fattest woman in the world simply because the other woman willing to marry you is a sick serial killer. I voted in the Michigan primary, and I'm happy that Bernie won. However, thanks to the media being controlled by companies like TimeWarner and Comcast that all support Hillary, well, what you see is what you get. Instead of electing a man who wants to break down the banks and make healthcare stronger, we're stuck with a woman who accepts bribes from the companies that ruined our economy and accepted more bribes from the healthcare industry. In other words, kiss America having a free healthcare system that the Brits, Canadians, Japanese and others have goodbye.
I can't wait til we totally know who's running, but I don't think the outcome is gonna be pretty.
