29. So let me try it from a different angle
Where did Smirk's 'electability' come from? He's a consistent failure, a diagnosable psychopath, a drunk, a druggie, a virtual military deserter. This was all available, but not brought out by Media Inc. Media Inc all but anointed him on day one of his 'campaign', instead. He was eventually declared the winner by his daddy's cronies, who violated their oaths of office to do it. He was shoved down our throats in a very, very blatant way.

Was he 'electable'? What does the term even mean to you? The ability to be sold like a package of breakfast food? Wealthy and connected to Organised Crime (Political Branch)? A member of the corporatocracy? Someone our rulers are willing to shove down our throats? It must mean something, but what?
