Anyway, Sarah Silverman recently posted a video in which she sings about all that she's feeling about the current state of affairs: <https://www.facebook.com/ILYAmerica/videos/1870297263299554/>. I was impressed; she encapsulated most of what was depressing me when I saw it.
This afternoon, I noticed a commenter had dismissed her, claiming that she had stabbed Bernie in the back at the national convention.
Listen bud (though this fellow probably doesn't read, and only watches videos; someone will have to make a video of this blog post for him. He should love the president, who is supposedly firmly in the non-reading camp): you can only logically blame Sarah Silverman for the election of Trump if she was instrumental in sabotaging both the Democratic Candidates. Now, let's talk about what you did.
- You were persuaded by Sarah Silverman, and reluctantly voted for Hillary Clinton. In this case, I will humbly accept that you had a point.
- You were pissed off at her, and since you hated Ms. Clinton, you voted for Trump. Well, let this be a lesson to you; voting out of anger puts you in an unpredictably messy position, and you only have yourself to blame. It's tough to make us believe that Sarah Silverman was at fault, if there were more than a couple of hotheads like you! Turn from your evil ways, and vote the GOP out at the earliest opportunity.
- You went ahead and wrote in Bernie Sanders. I don't know if this was allowed where you vote, and if it was, what the conventional wisdom concerning such a vote could be. My suspicion is that it was a wasted vote, and again you have only yourself to blame. Blame Sarah Silverman if your mental health requires it, but if possible, cast a more useful vote next time.
- You stayed home. I think this is the most likely case. We can't take you seriously.
