Spent the evening getting certified to help run the upcoming elections. I didn't catch a word of it, frankly, & will have to learn by doing. Interesting night all around, really. Went up there with the Cousin's Wife, as she'd needed to re-up her certification, & if it weren't for her (in her mid-20s), I would've been the youngest person there. One gentleman had been running elections for 40 years. Think about that.
Part of the reason I'm doing this is, of course, is to have a reason to get out of the house, but another reason is to actually be involved with the whole election process. I do think voting is important & the fact that less than half the voting age population doesn't vote accounts for much of why a goddamn D-lister celebrity is currently in the White House & stoking the fears of bed-wetting honkies across the nation. I don't know if I'll do it past this first primary (& possibly run-off if necessary), but we'll see. If nothing else, it's something to do.
Dudes are still wetting themselves about Megan Rapinoe, & one of the things they're crying about is her supposed lack of "sportsmanship". That's just horse shit. This whole idea of "sportsmanship" in professional sports is generally a way for sad bastards to feel superior to (usually) minority or female athletes when they're fail to show proper respect for the man. Russell Wilson caught this shit back when the Seahawks won the Superbowl in 2014, & it was just as much garbage then as it is now. The real reason Piers Morgan & the rest of the panty-sniffers are so irked at Rapinoe is because she showed contempt for Trump - who deserves it, remember - & that drives these guys insane. He's the walking embodiment of White Guy Who's Only Rich & Famous & President Because The Game Is Rigged That Way, & to not show him fealty is to disrespect everything third-rate, mediocre honky douchebag whose dad got him a job.
So anyway, that's that.
