The lesser evil, always

Ginandtacos concedes the obvious, but doesn’t like it one bit.

What are the reasons to vote for Hillary Clinton? There appears to be one: she can most likely beat any of the shaved apes the GOP is considering as a nominee right now. That’s it. Vote for her not because she is good or honest or trustworthy or makes us believe something better about ourselves and our nation, but because she has statistically higher odds of winning the November election than the Democratic alternatives.

That we have no viable alternatives, that we are unable to vote for rather than against, means that our political system sucks and helps explain why so many of us don’t bother to cast ballots.
