It's fun how even people trying not to be racist still have it ingrained in their thinking because of how/when they where raised.

I'm old enough to remember when saying stupid shit was Biden's most well-known attribute. Remember "articulate"?
Stand up, Chuck!

Yeah, there were so many, it was a given that he was the stupidest guy ever in front of a microphone, and I was always flabbergasted that anyone could consider him seriously as a candidate for president.

But then, well, Trump came along, and I guess that really sealed the deal on constantly saying stupid shit not being a disqualifier.

Ehh, stupid and goofs are different things. Dubyah Nukular Power was president, after all.

Alas, poor Hickenlooper, we barely knew ye.

Which is probably why he's dropping out.
He's going to try to get rid of Gardner, which, is probably a terrible idea, because while a lot of people want Gardner gone, Hickenlooper is not really super popular and will probably help drive a lot of apathy (non) voting. We'll see if he even makes it on the ticket.

Eh, voter turnout in presidential elections is almost entirely driven by the presidential candidates.

Seth Moulton has dropped out.

I was thinking "wouldn't it be funny to do the hunger game death sound for each time a candidate drops out" and then I remembered that was Colbert's bit during the 2016 republican primary and holy shit that feels like 50 years ago.

I mean, Colorado is a mail in state, but I guarantee that there are plenty of Dems in CO who have a low enough opinion of Hickenlooper to either leave their senate spot blank or vote 3rd party instead.

Yang supporters are shaping up to be the "our guy lost! Then fuck you we're voting trump" of 2020.

Half of that was Bernie's fault; when you lose, you're SUPPOSED to throw in behind the winner so half the base doesn't stay home. Instead, he took his voters and went home.

I'm tired of this shit from the Democrats: people are dying because of your fucking egos. Get in line and support the nominee.
