The Democratic Party.
That’s it. That’s the entire joke.
A party that currently goes out of its way to suppress anything that inspires political passion in the electorate is continually surprised by its many shameful losses.
Relying on an electoral strategy that can best be summed up as “the other party’s candidate is more odious than I am”, they’re resting their Trump-era hopes on wins in Republican strongholds.
After Barry Goldwater’s devastating loss to Lyndon Johnson in the 1964 presidential election, the conservative grassroots of the GOP began reshaping the party in their image from the ground up, culminating in the 1980 election of Ronald Reagan.
Barring the emergence of a viable third party (ha!), Democrats only need to wait, what, 14 – 16 years for everything to sort itself out? 2032 is going to be a great year for the liberal wing of the Democratic Party. Fandom predicts Chelsea Clinton (Senator of New York) and Leonardo DiCaprio (Governor of California) will duke it out for your affection.
