I'm grumpy. I want to relax and have fun in the SS and occasionally be silly and post lots of comics about talking flag-patterned balls. But we can't go twenty-five posts without something about the looming shitstorm catastrophe between the embodiment of political corruption and the embodiment of negative American stereotypes.

So... let's talk politics here, as civilly as required by the CoC. And leave our poor balls alone.

Oh, yeah... #FeeltheJohnson. FEEEEEEL IIIIIT. It's the only ticket in all fifty states without any rape apologism. Also, look at the lovely Marxist artwork in the Graduate Student Association office.

Well, considering US presidential elections have world-altering implications, it's not surprising that it comes up a lot, especially this one for how reality-jumping-the-shark it is.

On that note, I've got good news.

In October 1919, president Woodrow Wilson suffered a stroke and was bedridden. His wife, Edith Wilson, then took over for him, basically performing all presidential duties in his stead rather than letting the vice president take over. She claims she let the man himself make all the important decisions, and that she only decided what was important enough to relay to him. In effect, however, she was performing presidential duties in his stead, and to this day it's unclear exactly how much control she had over Woodrow's decision-making. Although she insisted otherwise until her death, in effect, she was acting as president. Which would make her the first female president in the US. Which... would mean that Hillary is too late to assume that title. By almost a hundred years.

Now, there are many arguments you could make against that. That she never admitted to making presidential decisions, and therefore wasn't. That her "stewardship", as she described it, was not lawful. That it was still Woodrow calling the shots. That any position she held was only de facto, not de jure. All of those make some sense. But, purely and simply for the purpose of denying Hillary the honors... Let's all unanimously agree to argue that, yes, Edith Wilson was definitely president from October 1919 to March 1921.

...Oh, and just in case that other assclown wins...

Cyanide was good enough for Himmler.

Bad jokes aside, the world will go on. Unless your house is on fire, people are dying in heaps on the street, cholera killed your mother, etc. you should be quite well-off objectively speaking in a historic perspective. Our parents and grandparent had quite a lot of **** to deal with (such as a potential nuclear holocaust), and most of them kept their mood stable and minds clear. But media has given us a heightened opportunity to agitate since the late 90s, so that's what we do. It's not a coincidence, I think, that a medieval strategy gaming forum has largely turned into a semi-intellectual debate.

We have two idiots gambling to become president, but the US has the candidates and the election it wants.

Well, can we really say it wants Hillary? She was more or less guaranteed the Dem nod... no matter what Joe Dem Voter had to say on the subject.

There's also some serious question, given Trump's massive surge in the primaries and then drop in the general... that maybe some of those nods were him tended to vote for Democrats in previous elections and then flipped their party standing to make the primary. But... eh. I think that's just dodging the responsibility.

Trump has said "bigly" more times than I care to count so far, and he's basically responding with "NO U".

No wonder only idiots like Trump.

Edit: Trump has gotten more and more incoherent as the debate's gone on. I didn't think that was even possible at this point.

What...?

We didn't discover Japan. Portugal did, three centuries earlier. And to people in the region, it was already known. Just ask Kublai Khan.

Our only involvement was that we drove a wedge into their border gates about 150 years ago. So much for the Democrats always being right...

Recently it's been discovered that, in the 8th Century, a Persian official was permanently stationed in Japan, possibly teaching Japanese civil servants mathematics. The place was less of a backwater than many thought. This was back when the Japanese were still copying Chinese governance techniques.

As for the disgrace and tragedy that is the 2016 American Presidential election, I think of America as if she is a drunk flatmate throwing up everywhere in your kitchen. For better or for worse, she occupies the same living space as you and you'll just have to deal with it while she does her dirty business and be tolerant, because you know she's just pissed and she'll be fine in the morning. Or will she? America, will you? America, please tell me this is only a phase? Maybe, a better comparison to following the Presidential election from Europe is like watching your best friend descend into alcoholism.

Sadly, we won't know that until the next election.
