Bee-otched For: not getting their priorities straight

Yesterday, I was watching a little bit of CBS Sunday Morning's interview with Al Gore.

They were talking about his new film, "An Inconvenient Sequel", the follow-up to his 2006 classic "An Inconvenient Truth" which had the former veep take on global warming. I saw the original at the long-defunct Studio 28 here in Grand Rapids and it was one of the most-groundbreaking films I've ever seen. Al did more in two hours on the silver screen than Dubya did in eight years in the Oval Office.

Of course, they had to touch on Gore's embarrassing loss to Dubya in the 2000 elections where he won the popular vote by just over half a million votes but thanks to the melee in Florida, he lost the Electoral College.

We all knew the end result: 9/11, lies over WMD, 3,000 dead on 9/11 and 4,000 more in Iraq and Afghanistan, troops coming home with PTSD and the list goes on and on. Hillary Clinton won the popular vote in the 2016 election, but now, we have Drumpf. Today, it was announced that Drumpf's approval rating is the lowest for a new president since Gallup polls started taking place 70 years ago. With Obamacare in jeopardy and Sen. John McCain's health problems thankfully preventing a vote on the Republican health package, Many worry that this will return people to the days of being denied coverage because of pre-existing conditions.

When I saw the old footage of Gore abandoning his fight against Bush, there was that small part of me that said that it was his fault for losing. The reason why was because he chose Connecticut senator Joe Lieberman as his running mate. Lieberman was a Democrat who voted with the Republicans and one HUGE reason why I didn't vote for him and Gore was because he was a part of the ultra-right-wing Parents Television Council and fought to get Howard Stern's radio and TV career to end.

With Hillary's loss to Drumpf in this past year's election, turnabout was fair play. The Democratic National Committee forced their superdelegates to vote for centralist Hillary and not the progressive Bernie Sanders. The end result was middle class men feeling like voting for Hillary would be the equivalent to going to a Lillith Fair concert or wanting to have their penis chopped off. So, they voted for the man who made the statement "grab her by the pussy" vogue. Now, we're stuck with an ultra-wealthy douchebag who wants to grab our healthcare and stick his tiny cock in its ass unlubed.

You see, the two party system in America is like going to a store where Coke and Diet Coke are your only options and you're a Pepsi guy. For me, I hate Hillary because she's a woman who can't keep her word, but I hate Drumpf even more. My suggestion is that the Dems need to man up and look at why FDR was the longest-serving president ever: it's because he was a true progressive who fought for the middle class and not big business.

Time for the Democrats to go back to their roots.
