210 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020
When faced with Bernie or Joe, our choice was clear…
Kihei, HI 96753, 04-10-2020 Friday: This past Wednesday, Senator Bernie Sanders, I-VT, announced the suspension of his campaign, meaning that even though he remains on the ballot through most of the remaining primary contests, he effectively has pulled the shades, locked the door, and flipped the OPEN sign to CLOSED in the front window. Over, done, lights out, leaving former Vice President Joe Biden the sole remaining survivor on the island. Who would have ever thought?
Now, we all love Joe, I mean, who doesn’t, right? Even Republicans love Joe for being the quirky character that he is. He always says something quoteworthy or notable because it usually does not come out right, now does it? The man overcame stuttering, which is incredible and we should give him high marks on that just as we should for having been a loyal vice president to the nation’s first black president, Barack Obama, a Hawaii boy, too.
Until the COVID-19 virus crisis hit, it looked as though Senator Bernie Sanders was gathering the momentum and that Joe was struggling to keep up, that is, until he won BIG in South Carolina and began rolling up victory after victory after victory.
Although the mainstream loves Joe, it was clear that Bernie was the one who had the fire in his belly because he was motivated by his followers and his followers were motivated by him. It was a never-ending feeding frenzy and it became apparent to many that in one-on-one debates, Bernie was going to smoke the former VP which is why many Democrats were somewhat afraid that we could indeed end up with a democratic-socialist as our nominee.
Many contend that the sudden ‘appearance’ of COVID-19 was the next step in the battle to remove Trump from office but we could also surmise that the coronavirus made Joe our nominee and sent Bernie into the dumpster of history.
I believe that Joe was going to win the nomination with the dropping out of Mayor Pete, Elizabeth Warren, Michael Bloomberg, and Amy Klobuchar but when it came down to just Joe v. Bernie, there was some question as Bernie was ‘all there’ whereas Joe segued ‘in and out’ on any given day and at any given moment.
Tom Perez and the leaders of our party have to have been consternated over what to do with Senator Sanders. The guy is not a Democrat although as I recall, Perez told him that for the cagey old Vermonter to win the nomination, he would have to become a Democrat YET, he NEVER did.
I suspect they were hoping that someone else- Warren, Buttigieg, Klobuchar, even Bloomberg- would somehow rise to the top and claim the nomination and then they could do the straight arm to Senator Sanders, thus grabbing his supporters (if they could), and rushing to the finish line.
Unfortunately, like I said, when it came down to Bernie v. Joe, the choice was both stark and somewhat troubling. If we went with Joe, we figured we most likely were going to lose whereas if we went with Bernie (and he kept his lips zipped on how wonderful Cuba is), we might win but some of the things he promised to do were scary as heck.
Then, along comes the Wuhan Virus, everything sputters to a shutdown, the last debate between the two candidates occurred before an empty auditorium, and both men dropped mostly out of sight because COVID-19 vacuumed up all TV news time and dumped it into the lap of the current president.
Thus, we found ourselves with Joe because Bernie is absolutely frightening. However…as I mentioned earlier in the week…the way Trump is handling the COVID-19 crisis is telling me that I might have to vote for him in November. Can you imagine if Bernie was our president?
Nope, neither can I. See you tomorrow.

I must say I am amazed that the AICP-END Blog would send up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist, the amazing Simone to Maui to do some photographic portraits of me. We have moved in this direction since politics have turned millions of people against one another and it is important for us as employers and as private people with families to protect, that we begin covering our actual identities from those seeking to cause us problems. I must say, Simone has done an outstanding job and this is a caricature of me that meets with my approval. My husband and I live and own a restaurant in Kihei, Hawaii, and have also worked in institutional cooking at Maui’s premier hospital up in Wailuku.
