Election 2020

On November 7, we learned Joe Biden seemed to have collected enough electoral votes to assure his election as President. Some recalled August 4, 1974. After Nixon resigned, President Gerald Ford said, “My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over.”

A new President will have a tough row to hoe, a four-year mess to clean up. The reality is, we need to return “politic” to politics: sound judgment, and civility. We won’t deal with Covid19 or with our political differences unless we care enough to work together. More minds united to tackle common problems are bound to yield greater success.

On November 8, the Santa Fe New Mexican quoted New Mexico leaders’ reactions. Some consider Steve Pearce a leader. Steve Pearce said, “Republicans will continue to fight this election in the courts.” Pearce’s childish behavior was no surprise. Boo-hoo.

Pearce blubbered about Governor Lujan Grisham’s dealing with the pandemic at every turn. Not fair! I wanna go outside and play! I wanna new mom. Pearce was shoulder to shoulder with the yowling baby Trump’s right to spread Covid19 in crowds and to refuse masks. You’re not the boss of me. You can’t make me, you can’t make me, you can’t make me.

Does Pearce man up and accept responsibility for his views? Nope. You started it. I’m rubber, you’re glue. Does Pearce man up and offer a path to success? No. Why should I? Are we there yet?

The election: did Pearce and the howling Trump accept abounding mail-ins during a raging pandemic? No. Make them stop throwing spit wads and picking on me! Except where the whimpering Trump had the votes (including the sobbing Trump’s mail-in vote). Mine, mine, all mine.

Don’t man up, Pearce: go to your room. Stay in Trump’s whining brats’ romper room until reality smacks your selfish little bare behind. (Screams, “Why are you so mean? Don’t you like me anymore? I hate you! I hate you!”)
