Hey Useful Idiots,
No, not Kanye, in case anyone else still gets stuck reading West ‘24. We’re talking about Dr. Cornel West, running for the presidency with the Green Party, and the most exciting name dropped so far to challenge Dumb and Dumber.
I want to hear your thoughts on him for this week’s Absurd Arena: Is he legit? Are his policies legit? Will his message seep through, even if his candidacy doesn’t?
Last week, I sadistically made us run debate prep for Joe Biden, forcing the Arena to play devil’s advocate to advise the president on how to spin his awful record to look somehow positive. And we failed miserably at this impossible task. But, as a still-much-deserved palate cleanser, this week we get to prep a much prettier candidate.
So how should we advise Dr. West? Should he tame down his progressive ideas in an attempt to grab voters across the spectrum, or do we say to hell with scaring the masses and go full throttle with radically-non-establishment plans?
Join Katie and Wilson at 12pm est to share what you want to see from this exciting contender, how he should play within this corporate system, and the best way to blow the roof off all of it.
