I'm sure many of you have seen the meme going around social media meant to assuage voters whose preferred presidential candidate has dropped. It's just a block of words that says this:
Time to remember the best voting advice I have heard: Voting isn't marriage, it's public transportation. You are not waiting for "the one" who is absolutely perfect. You are getting the bus. And if there isn't one going exactly to your destination, you don't stay at home and sulk — you take the one going closest to where you want to be.
It's not attributed to anyone, which is good because most of these "quote memes" end up being attributed to the wrong person (or are simply made up). In any case, it's a reasonable analogy and decent advice. I'm trying my best to take it.
It just would be so much easier if Sanders would stop insisting that he can explain the difference between "democratic socialism" and "socialism" to the American public. And if Biden would never ever never use the term "Joementum" again.
