The Absurd Arena – Useful Idiots Discussion Board Week of 10.24
For the Useful Idiots who think they can talk back to a podcast.
Hey Useful Idiots,
Wilson here. We are now 14 days out from the election. The most important midterm election in years. The most important election of our lives. One election to rule them all, one election to find them, one election to bring them all and in the darkness bind them. CAN YOU FEEL IT?
This was the gist of the corporate Sunday news shows this weekend, which, when not celebrating the prospect of World War III, were neck deep in polls, unending claims about Russia and January 6, and final pleas to vote for their candidates. Bernie, Nancy, Liz, everyone showed up for the big day.
And as we draw closer to November 8, with it comes the sickening stench of electioneering. Whether it’s the Democrats promising stricter qualifications for student debt forgiveness, pretending to be pro-choice, and buying more weapons for war, or the Republicans promising harsher border security, pretending to care about babies, and buying more weapons for war, we can all take refuge in the odor-killing perfume of Useful Idiots.
We want to hear your thoughts on the nonsense. But remember, this is the absurd arena, which means you can talk about anything you want: the election, World War III, wtf’s going on in the UK, the Yankees getting swept, the thing you probably shouldn’t text your ex, the book you can’t put down.
As usual, the best comments will be read on the show. Here’s the starter prompt:
What issue is most important in this election? What will be the consequences of the midterm results? What questions do you want Katie and Aaron to answer about the November 8 showdown?
