That the Boomers think is a twerp and the Millennials think is a blow-hard.

/Am I doing it right?

They'll just keep giving presidential medals of honor to Wilco.

Or a Millennial

/Hell, I'd even settle for a Boomer

Gen X people in power off the top of my head...

Paul Ryan

Ted Cruz

Liberal Gen Xers in power...anyone...anyone?

When I was in college in the 80s (political science major, stop laughing) Reagan was president and anyone who gave a shiat about anything carried Ayn Rand books under their arms wondering why they couldn't get laid. I told them to stop carrying around The Fountaindhead to parties. I got laid. Paul Ryan is now speaker of the house. And here we are.

Absolutely. The country can't take anymore of this stupidity.

No. I'd rather we just skipped right to the millennials.

Tammy Duckworth.

And we don't claim Paul Ryan and Ted Cruz.  Those guys had Winger mix tapes back in the day.

This is an adminstration I'd completely support. Maybe even serve as Secretary of the Department of Interior.

I didn't think Billy Idol could be the President?
 
2017-09-05 12:21:42 AM  
I'd like Henry Rollins to consider running for President.
 
2017-09-05 12:22:25 AM  
We must continue to judge our leadership by marketing demographics.

Technically, Obama was GenX.

I'll do it.

I have an associates degree equivalent number of college number of hours.

I work in government.

I work in private business.

I hate poor people. (Not really)

Beware of the claw.

Seriously, it's not hard to find one. For Christ's sake, this one's been the unofficial frontrunner in a lot of people's minds for 2020.

/Yes I know, 1961 can be Boomer or Gen X depending on the exact start date you set, but he always seemed much more Gen X than W, Bubba or Trump.

2017-09-05 12:30:36 AM  
Just rid the planet of the last of the selfish, cancerous Boomers and we'll be fine.  We can skip over us Gen Xers like Prince Charles and move on to a smarter solution.  It's ok, our generation knows it isn't "all about us."  We'll be ok with it.

AverageAmericanGuy: I'd like Henry Rollins to consider running for President.


Eddie Vedder 2020, maybe grab Tom Morello from Rage Against the Machine for VP.

If we're going to go full 90s on this shiat, we should go all in.

Well *I* don't want the job.. although if that was the price to cleanse Republicans from the White House, I'd consider it.

How about if the first lady is a toaster?

Interesting ticket but I only agree with 93% of their agenda, so I'm turn here.

2017-09-05 12:34:40 AM  
I'm starting to think we are better off without a human President at all.  Trump forever broke the role.  How about just a cat that can dip it's paw in ink and sign stuff an meow for the camera

Yeah, I agree. T-Ducks stance on student loan debt is great if your capitalist tool of the military industrial complex but for us antifa, anti-war, progressive activists it just doesn't go far enough. I'll just have to go ahead and write in "Bernie" again.
 
2017-09-05 12:45:47 AM  
Fine! I'll do it.

Someone grab the keys to that fancy armored limo and let's get to work.
