There is nothing like laughter to relieve stress. There is nothing like satire to make one feel better when it feels like the world is crumbling around you.
Depending on where one lands on the political spectrum, it would be understandable to feel that the political system that ensures America’s survival is disintegrating before our very eyes. That is where elections come in. Elections, whether on the local, state or national level, give the voters a sense of control.

Back in January, I wrote a post questioning if “Vote Blue, No Matter Who” was the best way to go in this election. As of now, my mind has started to slightly change. We need a Democrat in the White House, but we also need to be smart about who we vote for.
But if nothing else, we have Randy Rainbow to keep us laughing and thinking at the same time.
Today is Super Tuesday. Voters in fourteen states and American Samoa will have their say as to which Democratic nominee they want going against you know who in the fall.
As of earlier this week, both former Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Senator Amy Klobuchar dropped out of the race and endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden. After the Vice President won by a large margin in South Carolina over the weekend, it seems that we are headed for a showdown between him and Senator Bernie Sanders.
As much as I cringe that no matter how the vote goes, we will still have another old white man sitting in the highest office in the land, Biden is our best choice. It would have been nice to refer to Senator Klobuchar as Madam President (especially that this year is the centenary of the 19th amendment). But some things are not meant to be, as much as we would wish it to go our way.
The reason I stand behind Vice President Biden is that he has the best chance of getting you know who out of office. My fear is that if Senator Sanders wins the nomination, it will be the impetus that the right needs to give you know who another four years in office.
It’s only 8:50 on the East Coast. We still have a few hours to go before the final numbers are revealed. But I have a feeling (and perhaps a little hope) that it will be Vice President Biden representing the Democrats in the fall.
