I was fully intending to discuss the unlikely juxtaposition between South Carolina and Nevada in having alternating parties doing their electioneering events today as it is the Republican Caucus in Nevada and we already saw some action on that front, but instead I bust my butt removing a cabinet and installing electric and gas lines for a new to me range.
So I am tired. I'm a little tired of the minutia of the electioneering and the caucuses in particular. They are the most antiquated and backwards thing about the presidential election that it makes me want to scream. It is obvious that the system is like a stacked deck of cards where the house gets to guide the public to the winner of their choice. They have said as much. I find the counting of Super Delegates to be terribly disingenuous since they can change their mind. their vote is not cast. All it does is put a foot on the scale where they want it. It's so obvious! I wish they would just lie better. It's insulting to have their disregard of the system flaunted so. Today the Judicial Subcommittee came out of a closed door meeting declaring they would not even bother with reviewing any nominee that the president puts forward for the open SCOTUS chair. Again... I feel insulted. At least waste money like you do on trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Hear out the nominee, grill them, then drag your feet until the President's term is up and there is someone new in the high office to put new names in the hat. But no... Couldn't play the game, instead you show everyone you don't even intend to play by the rules and put forth any effort to work with the opposition. Nope. Just obstruct and stonewall, and let everyone know about it too. I hope it hurts their chances for re-election but sadly there are many in their constituency that would just applaud the move. No action is at least not the wrong action they would say. Sure... That can be true, but the spirit of the system that we work within is broken by such petulance. There is no desire of the elected officials to do their job, and I sincerely hope they have to find a new job come November.
Okay, I'm done ranting and we will be back to the elections next week for Super Tuesday! Hopefully we will have some results by the time I post.
