Shut Up and Vote for Me

Cornell Belcher, who I’d never heard of before but apparently he was somebody important in the Obama administration, just went on MSNBC and told us progressives we should ‘shut up, grow up, and get in line to vote for Joe Biden.’ He also said that we could argue with him about policies after he was elected.
It sounds familiar. It sounds a bit Sarah Silverman at the 2016 convention saying “You’re being ridiculous,” which a lot of Bernie people have never forgiven her for. It sounds a lot like what Joan Biden said, way back before the primaries had even begun. “Other politicians might have better positions on, like, health care, but you’re just going to have to suck it up and vote for my husband” or words very much to that effect. In fact, it sounds like something Joe Biden has probably said himself on the campaign trail.
But most of all it sounds like every Biden supporter I’ve ever seen on Facebook, repeating the same damn post over and over and over again. Because they have no other argument. If they say Supreme Court, there are people online who will remind them of Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia. If they say he supports Medicare for All, they are lying, and if they say he supports the Green New Deal (and both of these are things I’ve actually read, that people actually typed) they are lying. Perhaps lying is too harsh a word. Let’s replace that with “haven’t got a fucking clue what they’re talking about.”
You would think, by now, that some of them would have realized the truth, that when they are asked what policy is it of his that they like, they can’t think of a damned one.
You’d think they would have figured it out by now, that if they can’t think of a single policy of his they like, maybe they’ve been bamboozled. But, that doesn’t seem to be the case.

In lighter news, Herman Cain has caught the Corona Virus, after attending Trump’s Tulsa rally without a mask, and maybe he’ll die.
