@kingu_platypus_gidora roh roh my bad. I still don't support Sleepy Joe nor Drumpf. I prefer Trump for the Lolz but he's so sketchy unlike Sleepy Joe he isn't all that short tempered and not publicly gropey except for (sigh) with his daughter Ivanka.
If Sleepy Joe wins the (s)election his supporters are gonna be under perpetual lockdown. At least Trump doesn't stand far that. Either way it's a lose lose situation. 🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲

@Eidon

Probliem is that American choose to ignore the fact that there are more than 2 candidates...

@kingu_platypus_gidora Yes. And everything collapses to either republicans or democrats. Zappa lamented of this time and again....

@Eidon @kingu_platypus_gidora And that in its turn is a consequence of First Past the Post, aka the Root of All Evil.

@kingu_platypus_gidora @Eidon They can't really do otherwise to have any effect on state and nation-level elections since it's a first-past-the-post system, which makes only the winner and the runner-up matter.
@kingu_platypus_gidora @Eidon I'd say it's the opposite, first-past-the-post is the simplest possible election system, there's no need to calculate proportions, majority (simple, absolute?), pretty much no runoffs, it's like election training wheels.

Biden-flavored y i k e s 

@kingu_platypus_gidora
At least he's better than that damp, racist Cheeto with ties to the mafia

@hypolite @kingu_platypus_gidora
Lol, don't worry, you'll *never* hear anything like that come out of my mouth (or keyboard, as it were)

@kingu_platypus_gidora @Christian Not from you specifically, but at least two other people have on this thread.

@kingu_platypus_gidora

Ça fait trente ans qu'il est vieux !

Merci, samedi j'ai pleuré devant ma TL Twitter de LGBT qui faisaient comme si Biden était de gauche et s'extasiaient devant le pronom de Kamala Harris. Très peu de voix divergentes.

@kingu_platypus_gidora @aude_v C'est facile de juger de loin, les quatre dernières années ont été très éprouvantes avec un net recul des protections accordées aux personnes LGBTQ. Ce résultat électoral est donc une victoire du moins pire, mais une victoire quand même.

@hypolite @kingu_platypus_gidora

Je sais, j'ai pas une TL LGBT pour rien. Et même de loin, ça m'aurait fait mal de voir l'autre gagner. 👍🎉 ❤️ , les fêtes de rue improvisées.

Mais les Franchouillard-es qui s'extasient sans aucun recul, ça, ça m'a gonflée. M. Magnaudeix a RT un truc plus énervé de Jacobin (c'est super mais on continue de lutter) et il a fallu que @G_Ricordeau fasse un fil entier pour expliquer que Biden et Harris mettent les pauvres en taule. 2 tweets nuancés /436.

@kingu_platypus_gidora On the other hand, he might actually leave office once voted out.

Or you know, pass the baton to Kamala, who seems like a very sharp individual.
