As we enter both primary season and awards season, the entertainment industry should give some awards to the political parties and the news media. Like, “most creative use of reality”, and individual awards to Trump for “best leading role in a situation comedy” and the rest of the Republican candidates for “best supporting actors”. While Trump wins the “most attractive to cranky old white men”, Sanders walks away with “best cranky old white man”. For her part, Clinton could win the “most conservative campaigner with liberal policies” award. Cruz easily wins the “most popular candidate that nobody likes” award, and Carson should get the “best campaign led by someone who slept through most of it” award (the “Reagan” award).
Go ahead, gentle viewers. Nominate the candidates for the awards they deserve. I’ll see you in the comments.
