Wherein I Expose Myself As A RINO

Second Thoughts About Mass Extinction As A Political Philosophy

Now that the euphoria about the new guy has worn down a bit, this all is starting to seem a bit short-sighted.

I mean, there are things I still wanted to do with the rest of my life, you know? And I don't really want to go running around knocking things off a bucket list for the next ten months.

OK, that may sound selfish. But I'd hazard that there's a significant plurality of people who think sudden cataclysmic destruction of all life is undesirable, for one reason or another. And yes, those reasons may be selfish - like wanting to see their children grow up, or being unwilling to be torn apart by a pulverizing force beyond their comprehension - but so what? Their petty workaday desires are no less valid than anyone else's.

Gonna level with you here. This didn't just come to me as a bolt.

This morning a plucky young campaigner came to talk to me about this darkhorse candidate that I never heard of, but who really makes a lot of sense to me.

Now, doesn't that look lovely? So relaxed, so heedless of current events, polls, or blood-boiling political shenanigans. Perfect. So nice for me. This is exactly what I've been yearning for.

You bet your sweet Moron asses I signed up! Can hardly wait. The next step is a blood test, and then they measure my internal organs for some reason. Probably so they know how much WIN to put in the IV every day.

Totally. Stoked.
