    Ay, ay, ay! This election is reminiscent of the 2016 Presidential race. Liberals all in their feelings because all of the candidates are meh – yet they’re trying desperately to convince you that their horse is the one to place your bet on.

A point on this crowded congressional competition: saying you will stand up to Donald Trump is easy! Calling out his cadre of racist buffoons is a nobrainer. Shit, Fox News and the Koch brothers are standing up to that mamon!
