Primary Point of View (Page 1/3)

Mayor Pete is not old enough to remember the unlikely ending of Spike Jones’ rendition of the William Tell Overture: And the winner………….Buttigieg

Old Joe is feeling kind of low, with the words of James Taylor on his mind: “Ain't it just like a friend of mine to hit me from behind? I'm going to Carolina in my mind.”

Bernie is singing “Three Wheels on my Wagon”.

There is some audio circulating which might just take the Bloom off the Berg. We shall see.

Likely results of NH: Bernie, Pete has an outside chance.

One can hope.

But boatloads of money buys a lot.

Buttigieg, what he's probably got going for him is another recognition "card" .
He could be "the first...."
Like Obama, and like Hillary tried to run for...

But then:

"For Ivins, Buttigieg was gay, but he was not queer. This might seem like semantics to older, and straight, voters, but for some millennials it matters. "
" Is it possible that we have reached a stage where a gay candidate for president could lose a critical demographic for not being gay enough?"

yeah, the guardian, I know.

Yeah, I am surprised that Buttigieg is doing so well. America was ready for a black president, and I think we are ready for a female president, but I think it will be a very long time (if ever) before we see a homosexual president.

But I didn't think Trump would make it past the primaries, either. What really bothers me, though, is that there are a lot of forces working against the will of the people.

Maybe I should have said: openly homosexual president.

With about one third of the precincts in, Pete is slowly but steadily gaining on Bernie; while Amy is nipping at their heels. Lizzy and Joe are getting about as much respect as the professor and Mary Anne in the first version of the Gilligan's Island theme song.

Buttigieg was never running to be President. He is but a puppet to display "the normalicy of a "queer", per capita, sexual relationship which people find queer.

Biden ? Has he ever won anything ? Have any of his sponsored bills ever passed ?

Not one of these Dumbs think that they are going to win. Neither do the lame stream media. They need noise to keep their sheeple occupied and to keep them from being woke by sensible thoughts.

Mayor Pete, lecturing Christians on Christian values.

Quid Pro Joe, saying he is the only one who can beat Trump. He is the only one who can get the African American vote. Uhh, …. Joe ? Don't you also need White votes ? What happened in Iowa and NH ?

I'm confused. What's "per capita" got to do with it? Are you punning or double entendre'ing on the word "queer?"

That sentence violates the Standard Model of Quotation Marks. There are an odd number (3) of quotation or " marks. That cannot be. I think you omitted a quotation mark that you meant to have included immediately after the letter "y" in "normalicy." But the proper spelling is "normalcy."

That sentence is abnormal--in fact, it's downright queer.
