One quick thought about Super Tuesday:
Never say never. Also, the Inevitable is actually inevitable.
For weeks, political psychos have just been wailing on the Fake News about how Bernie Sanders is gong to win the nomination and at least 49 states along with it. But over the course of the last week, the entire race turned on its head and Joe Biden emerged as the frontrunner.
It is honestly hard to even compare what him winning Massachusetts, Texas, and Minnesota means. That is a bigger flex than the time Baker Mayfield planted the Oklahoma flag on Ohio State’s logo.
It is a bigger win behind enemy lines than what Rambo pulled-off in First Blood Parts 1-3. But I mean if we are being totally honest, the only people who are surprised at all about Super Tuesday are fancy people. The boneheads had this one right all along. If you were just a gambling addict/dive bar know-it-all who put $100 on Joe Biden six months ago and then went back to vaping and watching porn, you probably did better than “experts” who got shook AF by Bernie’s run in New Hampshire and Nevada. Let’s get real: the Democratic Primary has basically played out exactly the way that people with no knowledge of politics would have predicted: Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders in a two man race, with every other candidate being a total loser.
We joined in this feast, picking Bernie to lose in TX, Arkansas, and Alabama; and Biden to win Virginia, Tennessee, Alabama, Arkansas, North Carolina and Texas.
We took fat Ls in California and Minnesota.
We took early profits (phew!) in Maine and Massachusetts.
And we committed absolute bank robberies in Illinois, Georgia, Mississippi, and Kentucky, where we we got in early and were handsomely rewarded. All of these positions are now closed.
What a time to be alive. But — should anyone have been surprised?
And that’s the funny thing. Once these elections are over, the result always feel the same: inevitable. Obvious.
Shit. If only we knew.
