Bummer Dude!

So, it appears all these celebrities who promised to leave if Mr. Trump was elected are now staying.  They are distraught and hate the fact their countrymen are misogynists, racists, Islamophobic, and homophobic, but gosh darn they will stay right here.  Bummer dudettes, you should follow through with your threats and teach us all a lesson.

Colin Kaepernick, you remember him don’t you?  He is so outraged over the racial oppression of blacks in this country he refuses to stand during the national anthem.  He has created a cottage industry of people who are now “taking a knee.”  Colin is so outraged he didn’t bother to vote for someone who would carry the message of equality forward.  Bummer dude, you’ve shown yourself to be a self-serving hypocrite, but fortunately you are not alone and your charade can go on.

Separating political hyperbole from reality.  This was an ugly, distasteful, mean-spirited, and did I mention ugly campaign.  The left was all condemning of how democracy would be destroyed if Mr. Trump lost and did not accept the results of the election without protest.  Yet now the tables are turned, whose supporters are in the street setting fire to stuff?  Bummer dudes and dudettes, but then hypocrisy has been your political stock in trade for some time.

Chaos within the Democratic National Committee.  Early indications are that some of the professional staffers might be just a tad upset with the handling of the primary system that saw the chairman, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, HRC, Donna Brazile and the rest of the gender-specific leadership colluding to put forth a weak and corrupt candidate to face the Republicans choice.  Bummer, dudes, eight years ago and then four years ago, the Republicans went through the same thing.  That self-reflection led to a primary system that nominated a candidate who actually connected with the average citizen, even if his language offended you.  Unfortunately, I don’t see self-reflection as a strong suite for the DNC.
