This is the first election cycle I can recall where I have been as anxious as I am right now. It’s been almost a week since my last post, and that wasn’t even about politics, but pets (I still have the big reveal coming, too). It’s not that the Republican trick of trying to disgust people so much they become uninvolved has working, because I am still checking in on the news and when I don’t I have umpteen people messaging me or my parents calling me, all appalled, and usually with a message that says “Did you see what he said/did now?’ And I groan, and sigh, and then usually blurt out “God I fucking hate him.”
He’s just so fucking awful. And I know I should not be writing this here because this is somewhat of an oasis of calm for many of you and here I am shitting all over the bed, but god damn I want this all to be over. As far as the election goes, I feel positive about the results- there’s always Republican fuckery afoot, but I honestly think enough people have just had enough. But just thinking about it for a little bit gets me in the downward spiral of “I can not take four more years of this shit.” And I’m white, straight, and male.
So that is why I have not been posting as much. It’s just too much. I need a god damned break. Not to mention, the thing I hate most in this world is stupid people, and with Trump and the covid deniers it’s just overwhelming. The good news is that I appear to be in the minority. People are working their asses off, doing the hard work to make sure this election goes as we hope, and that includes folks like this FUCKING GODDESS:

You get off on your bad self, ma’am, and I salute you. I am really hoping that the harder the Republicans try to disfranchise people the more pissed off and determined it makes them to vote.
Speaking of, an alert reader asked me if I know of any organizations that are helping to make sure votes are counted and assisting with it. Legal groups, etc. Does anyone know? DougJ has been doing yeoman’s work on the fundraising, but if there are any groups specifically focused on getting votes counted and doing the legwork, let’s raise some funds for them.
I want 2021 to be boring as fuck again. Make the Presidency Boring 2020. Like an entire week at a time without that rancid orange fuck or Biden on tv. No more turning on the news and seeing that putrid piece of shit, but Biden and Harris calmly talking in full sentences about the next piece of legislation the newly elected Democratic House and Senate are going to pass and why it will be good for America. No more race baiting. That’s not too much to ask, is it?
