The Votes Are In

Just a quick reminder to anyone keeping a close eye on the current and coming presidential primaries:

No one knows who is going to win.

The TV will be filled with experts and pundits and historians and analysts who will try to discuss all the possibilities and ramifications and other intriguing theoreticals, but not a single one of them has a fucking clue how all this will shake out. None of them, not one. Of course, that won’t stop them from musing, pontificating, and arguing about it till your eyes turn to paste, but your guess about who will win is literally as good as theirs.

It’s ludicrous. A nation of fully-grown adults have to collectively pretend that this is reasonable, spending massive amounts of time and money so a bunch of people can make endless predictions with little evidence and no consequence.

[update]

Satirist/blogger Jon Swift properly nails the post-Iowa analysis.

  2. Uh, not to mention that the whole thing is rigged anyway, and that the votes will not actually be counted, and that the current fascist regime is either planning or allowing the next ‘terrorist’ event so they can declare martial law.

    Oh, but Happy New Year, everybody.
