I have been meaning to say for several months now that american politics is way more interesting than australian politics at the moment. Yes we have an election but the choice we have here is a. a crafty moderate conservative who knows how to play cards and a guy that has less charisma than two planks of wood. I watched part of the televised debate last weekend and it reminded me of *<a href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4v7XXSt9XRM”>Kang & Kodos</a>*.
The presidential nominations are interesting but also sadly doomed. Parliamentary politics usually only attracts the power-addicted and the corrupt. But the guy running for the democrat nomination, Bernie Sanders seems to be a genuine, honest person. I can’t say I’ve ever really seen this kind of person in politics before. And he’s actually been in the Congress for decades.
Sarah Silverman explains it much better than me:

Unfortunately the nomination process is undemocratic and corrupt so it doesn’t look like he’ll make it.
