    Yeah I never understood wanting to vote for the “guy I want to have a beer with” thing.

    The guys I have beers with are nice enough and funny at times, but I sure as hell wouldn’t want them running the country.

    I want a boring as fuck, never misses any details, workaholic kind or person running the country. Someone I wouldn’t want to have a beer with because all they ever talk about is their job.

        ignore him

        Not true, they shifted focus to him for a while so they could do everything in their power to kneecap and malign him when he had a plausible shot at giving them the presidency in 2016, and grabbing them support from a generation of young voters who were for the only time in their lives actually wholly excited to vote for somebody, anybody, who seemed like he might care about them and want to do great things with the awesome power of the American presidency.

        He was the most popular politician in America for YEARS after they decided he wasn’t their guy, and is still more popular today than either Biden or Trump.

        I want to put a sad emoji here, but I can’t actually find one that is sufficient to convey what I want to express about it

      Me too. When will we nominate one of those?

      I actually think they do run most countries. Unfortunately they are scheming cowardly types without morals in addition to that.
