I don’t want another beer drinking buddy, I want a president

The Buddy-in-Chief.
The Friend-in-Chief.

Somehow, the Republican Party will find a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in 2016. 

Looking at their recent track record of ensuring rich old white out-of-touch multi-zillionairs are nominated by the Party, count on it.

And now the DNC’s propaganda arm (aka: the Alphabet Networks) have set in stone that  one of the prerequisites for electability is elbow bendability.

Dear Republican Party, please know that I could give a damn less about having a new BFF in the White House, beer drinker or otherwise.
