A Super Long List of #SuperTuesday Random Thoughts

Well, not really.  Honestly, I don’t know what else to say other than this has easily been the craziest election campaign I have seen in my life (as foretold by the great movie, “Idocracy”!)

Two outsider candidates are threatening the establishment insiders of both parties and the “Kang or Kodos” politics of barely distinguishable two-party candidates that we’re used to.

Donald Trump (Drumpf!) is dominating the Republican contest in a way that few foresaw by tapping into a weird blend of people’s fascination with wealth, pop culture, xenophobia and ‘Murica! 

On the Democratic side, a wild-haired lifetime (democratic) socialist has basically come out of nowhere to become a legitimate challenger to one of the most well-known, well-financed, well-connected candidates in history.  He’s done this by inspiring a legion of young, tech-savvy millennials to give record-setting amounts of small donations while denouncing traditional SuperPACs and corporate donations as he pursues a wholesale political revolution.

It’s been wild so far and I can only imagine what else we’ll see coming – people said Trump would eventually fall back to earth and he just keeps proving everyone wrong. People said Bernie Sanders was just a protest candidate and now he’s promising to take his campaign right to the Democratic convention in June in Philadelphia.

It’s going to be interesting!
