While struggling with a crisis, President Camacho:

1.) Recognized that the problem existed.
2.) Recognized that he wasn't the smartest person in the world.
3.) Found the smartest person in the world and gave him unlimited powers to fix the problem.
4.) Threw a giant party when he fixed the problem and threw his house open to everybody.
5.) Resigned and handed over the keys of the country to the smartest person in the world.

Camacho would actually be a better president than Trump.

Kanye was put up to this by Trump to divide the Black vote.

And it looks like it's working, goddammit.

This is dirty politics at its worst, and it may just end up being the reason our country is completely destroyed in the not-so-distant future.

A poll put up by Kanye's podcast? Seems legit.

It doesn't matter if it's legit. It gives a snapshot of how Kanye's fans are reacting to this announcement, and if the reality of this clusterfark is escaping you, Kanye sold 21 million albums. If a portion of those people, plus a portion of Kim Kardashian's vapid, low-information, stupid farkin' fanbase decides to sway their vote from Biden The Old White Guy, then we're looking at some dents in Biden's numbers that may have a serious impact on the race.

This is bad. Kanye's sole function is as a spoiler, and his fans are too farking stupid to understand or care.

Exactly. Whether he actually does what is necessary to qualify to be on the ballot, as a write-in or otherwise, doesn't even matter. Every vote for him, whether 'legitimate' or wasted, is effectively a vote for 45*. Hell, at this point it wouldn't surprise me if he were to get votes even if he stood up tomorrow and said 'I was joking, please don't vote for me.' The genie is out of the bottle now.


And I bet when you close your eyes and picture exactly who would be the stupid type of muthafarker to fall for Kanye's bullshiat, you see lots of black people.

Come on man, we all ain't that stupid. And you know good and goddamned well, there simply aren't enough of us to sway the election that much.

Young people are hard working, but when it comes to voting, they are lazy. I know this. One of my nieces, her husband, and my nephew and his wife, told me they were "too busy" to vote in 2016. They probably were. But they are fully engaged now. They get it. They don't know everything, but they know Trump has to go. It took this kinda kick in the ass for them to realize that as adults, and parents, your farking voice matters!

I know liberal whites who did not vote at all in 2016. Folks in their 40s, and 50s. Gen Xers, who grew up with Reagan and both Bushes in office. Folks who gleefully voted for Obama.


Biatches who did the "pussy hat" march for women's rights after Trump took office. Women who paid twice to see the "Vagina Monologues." But those same good people refused to vote for a woman. Refused. They couldn't stand her. She was vile. She was evil. "Both sides" were bad, but that biatch was too much. So they decided, "fark it!" and look what happened. Look at what happened! In your life, did you ever think we would elect a Russian spy, and a fascist to office? In the farking 21st century?

So pump your breaks on your hatred for Kanye. Kanye is not the reason why Trump is In office. Middle class liberal white America is the reason. They couldn't get the candidate they wanted, so they said "fark it," and left it up to some of the most prosperous, educated, upper middle class racists in the country to prop up, and elect the Leader of the Free World. You know, a strong, intelligent, Harvard law school professor who taught classes on the Constitution. A competent, and compassionate leader who would be able to guide the most prosperous country in the world through a farking pandemic.

Oops, I'm sorry! I mixed up the first black President of the United States, with the psychopathic, failure in life, rich, entitled white boy currently at the helm. My bad!

What happens this fall, ain't gonna be all on us darlin. When you count in those ineligible to vote, voter disenfranchisement, "lost ballots," and the fact that some of us just don't want to risk our farking lives standing in line, we simply don't have the numbers!

Roaches scurry when the lights come on. This November, we're going to see how many there are, and where they've been hiding.

Probably about 1/4 of the states it is too late, the others he would need to start petitions immediately to meet deadlines and start on all the paperwork. Even as a strictly write in candidate you have to file paperwork in most states to even have your vote counted.

Do you know what makes this stupid shiat so bad? Kimmy girl knows her husband is batshiat nutso. Kanye is off his meds, if he's taking any at all, and Ms. Kartrashian knows it. She's having fun with this! Hey, at least they're getting clicks!

Kanye's life wasn't horrible. His mom was a professor at HBCU Clark-Atlanta, and his dad was a photographer. They divorced when he was 12 or so, and you know how it is. Some boys take that shiat hard.  It can be hard to grow up without a man in the house.

But the thing he had going for him is that he is really smart. He even learned to speak Chinese! But something was wrong in his head. After his mom died, the floodgates opened. The diagnosis they gave the public was bipolar, but I have always maintained that he is schizophrenic. He completely broke from reality after Moms went on to her "long home."

Kanye West suffers from mental illness. We can hate on him all we want--him being a rapper, him hanging around with thugs, whatever preconceived notions you want to harbor about him. But he truly has issues. That's nothing to joke about, and had he been white, there would probably be some sappy biopic about his epic struggles, co-starring big boobed Jennifer Lawrence.

Kanye is a mess. We shouldn't hate on the mentally ill. This is all being condoned by Ms. Kim KarSociopath. All she sees are dollar signs. She cannot wrap her mind around the fact that money doesn't matter when it comes to mental illness, especially if your spouse can basically pay other people to ignore his symptoms.

Jesus, man, when are they gonna let him get the help he needs?

He had amazing potential. He produced some game changing bangers. His name should be heralded in the rap world for his drive and creativity. But now he's just an object of derision. He's a clown, who is letting his delusions do the talking. I feel sorry for him. If Kim ever gets tired of pulling his strings, I don't think he'd be long for this world by himself. He's in his 40s. He's damaged.

When he later acted in haste and made a mistake, but was shown evidence of his mistake, Comacho accepted it and immediately acted to remedy the situation and restore justice.

Kanye's last album sold less than half a million copies, and much of that was propped up by MAGAts trying to cheerlead his pro-Trump turn like Two Scoops picked up an endorsement from the King of the Black People.

The overwhelming amount of Kanye's commercial music success was between 2003 and 2010. Now, he's more known for his mental illness.

Dude that is a twitter troll poll. People all over the world click whatever for shiats and giggles. I'm willing to bet over 80% of them can't vote or never vote.

Am i the only one who is reading the obvious play here?

He is doing this FOR Trump.

Step 1: gauge how much support he can peel off the Dems. It's an experiment.
Step 2: if Kanye has traction, Trump announces him as his vice-president.
Step 3: if Kanye has little traction, he keeps playing interference against the Dems

Kanye doing this hurts the Dems, does not hurt Trump at all.

Also, until now I had planned to buy a Tesla one day. But I'll never do that now. Elon Musk can go Fark himself, I'm buying a Honda hybrid instead.

/ Even odds that Kanye is getting paid a boatload of money for running interference like this
// If Kanye gains traction, it may be time to get a Dem celebrity on the ticket -- Michele Obama or Oprah
/// If you're laughing at all this, may I remind you that you laughed when Trump was on the ticket? Wise up

There was a June deadline for both Texas and New York.   About 30 states require that both registration and confirmed petitions (signed by registered voters of that state) be posted by August 3-5.  The remainder have deadlines that expire in September.

Just claiming your running for President on Twitter, does NOT make it so.  He's probably just Jonesin' for attention again.

Old and busted:

Perhaps the most cynical exploitation of race was performed by one of the few remaining black Republicans, Clay Claiborne, assistant to the chairman of the RNC for Negro Affairs. Over 1,500,000 leaflets were printed on election eve, urging blacks to write in Martin Luther King instead of voting for Johnson. The campaign, credited to the fictitious "Committee For Negroes in Government," was exposed by King and the media as a hoax before the election.

He won't get on the ballot in swing states. The only swing state he might get on the ballot in time for is Arizona.

stpickrell: Let's assume he's serious and isn't going to walk this back in a few days.

The best comparison is probably to Evan McMullin who got his campaign going in early August.

The upsides?

Kanye has way more name recognition than McMullin who must have been David French's fifth or sixth choice.

He's also got way more money, so I think those along with the extra month (I assume he'd file the FEC paperwork in the next week and have a full-on signature gathering process going by the 15th at the latest), would give him a much higher potential than McMullin.

He's not getting in the debates but if he starts polling in the mid single digits Trump might use that as a Get out of Debates Free card, demanding that Kanye be given a bigger stage.

The downsides, though?

We'll see some former staffers leak testimony, possibly video, of his episodes. What we already know is sort of ... not what we'd like from a President.

He doesn't have a real agenda, although that in theory might change. He might have some room if he ran as a Bernie bro, thus getting some of the votes of people of Rose Twitter and those who want to give a middle finger to the system and don't care which finger it is. On the other hand, a lot of the latter crowd voted for Trump and weren't likely to vote for Biden who does represent the system. If he went Bernie Bro, he might pummel Howie Hawkins into further irrelevance, since the Rose Twitter crowd is mostly deciding whether to stay home or vote for Hawkins.

Another possible route might be Bernie Bro + pro life + pro gun and trying to fuse the concerns of ADOS with those of White Americans against immigrants. That's really dependent on how much Trump-Americans are racist against all Blacks or just against Blacks that deviate from social norms and/or vote Democratic.

He'd have to come up with something serious about the pandemic - something that just relies on MOAR PRAYER would keep him hanging out with Howie Hawkins.

Kanye's potential base is among lower-information voters who have a vague idea that BLM > DJT. However, I suspect pictures from Kanye's conservative period might come out. I also wonder how many of them would actually vote (I suspect many of them don't bother to vote and would need to register.)

Biden's also up by high single/low double digits, and much of the switching is among older folks (who regularly vote) who thought Trump might help the stock market and think they can live with Biden provided he's given a Republican Congress in 2022.


Pictures "might come out?" Like the dozens of pictures of Kanye in a MAGA hat and the pics of him in the White House sucking up to Two Scoops? Yeah, those are already out. Along with Kanye saying that slavery was a choice.

Dude that is a twitter troll poll. People all over the world click whatever for shiats and giggles. I'm willing to bet over 80% of them can't vote or never vote. The other 20% just click kanye because they think he will take votes away from democrats. Look at rumps percentage, seems a bit low don't ya think? Biden usually comes out ahead on twitter but not by that much.

Even in a meaningless Twitter poll, Biden crushes Trump.



One more thing I just looked at the retweets on that poll and guess who shows up the most: Trump bots in pro trump twitter threads.  Followed by kanye pop music fans.

He is doing this FOR Trump.

Step 1: gauge how much support he can peel off the Dems. It's an experiment.
Step 2: if Kanye has traction, Trump announces him as his vice-president.
Step 3: if Kanye has little traction, he keeps playing interference against the Dems

Kanye doing this hurts the Dems, does not hurt Trump at all.

Do the debates even matter in this election? Trump and Biden are absolute night and day, so I have a hard time believing that anyone is undecided. Even the people who aren't a fan of one will still vote for him just because they really hate the other. So I can't imagine what either of them could say or do in a debate that would change anyone's mind. The only thing left is to try and get as many voters to the poles as possible, especially those who usually don't vote since they'll probably lean Democrat. But I don't think those people pay attention to debates.

Kanye's life wasn't horrible. His mom was a professor at HBCU Clark-Atlanta, and his dad was a photographer. They divorced when he was 12 or so, and you know how it is. Some boys take that shiat hard.  It can be hard to grow up without a man in the house.

But the thing he had going for him is that he is really smart. He even learned to speak Chinese! But something was wrong in his head. After his mom died, the floodgates opened. The diagnosis they gave the public was bipolar, but I have always maintained that he is schizophrenic. He completely broke from reality after Moms went on to her "long home."

Kanye West suffers from mental illness. We can hate on him all we want--him being a rapper, him hanging around with thugs, whatever preconceived notions you want to harbor about him. But he truly has issues. That's nothing to joke about, and had he been white, there would probably be some sappy biopic about his epic struggles, co-starring big boobed Jennifer Lawrence.

Kanye is a mess. We shouldn't hate on the mentally ill. This is all being condoned by Ms. Kim KarSociopath. All she sees are dollar signs. She cannot wrap her mind around the fact that money doesn't matter when it comes to mental illness, especially if your spouse can basically pay other people to ignore his symptoms.

Jesus, man, when are they gonna let him get the help he needs?

He had amazing potential. He produced some game changing bangers. His name should be heralded in the rap world for his drive and creativity. But now he's just an object of derision. He's a clown, who is letting his delusions do the talking. I feel sorry for him. If Kim ever gets tired of pulling his strings, I don't think he'd be long for this world by himself. He's in his 40s.

While struggling with a crisis, President Camacho:

1.) Recognized that the problem existed.
2.) Recognized that he wasn't the smartest person in the world.
3.) Found the smartest person in the world and gave him unlimited powers to fix the problem.
4.) Threw a giant party when he fixed the problem and threw his house open to everybody.
5.) Resigned and handed over the keys of the country to the smartest person in the world.

Camacho would actually be a better president than Trump.

Which is EXACTLY what I tell people who try to compare the Trumpocalypse with Idiocracy.
It's not even the same.


Idiocracy was wrong. It isn't stupid poor people ruining society, it's stupid rich people.

Kanye was put up to this by Trump to divide the Black vote.

And it looks like it's working, goddammit.

This is dirty politics at its worst, and it may just end up being the reason our country is completely destroyed in the not-so-distant future.

A poll put up by Kanye's podcast? Seems legit.

It doesn't matter if it's legit. It gives a snapshot of how Kanye's fans are reacting to this announcement, and if the reality of this clusterfark is escaping you, Kanye sold 21 million albums. If a portion of those people, plus a portion of Kim Kardashian's vapid, low-information, stupid farkin' fanbase decides to sway their vote from Biden The Old White Guy, then we're looking at some dents in Biden's numbers that may have a serious impact on the race.

This is bad. Kanye's sole function is as a spoiler, and his fans are too farking stupid to understand or care.


Do Kayne's fans even vote?

Let's assume he's serious and isn't going to walk this back in a few days.

The best comparison is probably to Evan McMullin who got his campaign going in early August.

The upsides?

Kanye has way more name recognition than McMullin who must have been David French's fifth or sixth choice.

He's also got way more money, so I think those along with the extra month (I assume he'd file the FEC paperwork in the next week and have a full-on signature gathering process going by the 15th at the latest), would give him a much higher potential than McMullin.

He's not getting in the debates but if he starts polling in the mid single digits Trump might use that as a Get out of Debates Free card, demanding that Kanye be given a bigger stage.

The downsides, though?

We'll see some former staffers leak testimony, possibly video, of his episodes. What we already know is sort of ... not what we'd like from a President.

He doesn't have a real agenda, although that in theory might change. He might have some room if he ran as a Bernie bro, thus getting some of the votes of people of Rose Twitter and those who want to give a middle finger to the system and don't care which finger it is. On the other hand, a lot of the latter crowd voted for Trump and weren't likely to vote for Biden who does represent the system. If he went Bernie Bro, he might pummel Howie Hawkins into further irrelevance, since the Rose Twitter crowd is mostly deciding whether to stay home or vote for Hawkins.

Another possible route might be Bernie Bro + pro life + pro gun and trying to fuse the concerns of ADOS with those of White Americans against immigrants. That's really dependent on how much Trump-Americans are racist against all Blacks or just against Blacks that deviate from social norms and/or vote Democratic.

He'd have to come up with something serious about the pandemic - something that just relies on MOAR PRAYER would keep him hanging out with Howie Hawkins.

Kanye's potential base is among lower-information voters who have a vague idea that BLM > DJT. However, I suspect pictures from Kanye's conservative period might come out. I also wonder how many of them would actually vote (I suspect many of them don't bother to vote and would need to register.)

Biden's also up by high single/low double digits, and much of the switching is among older folks (who regularly vote) who thought Trump might help the stock market and think they can live with Biden provided he's given a Republican Congress in 2022.

The deadline in Oklahoma was back in April. Oklahoma doesn't allow write-ins, a ballot with writing on it is a 'spoiled' ballot and is rejected by the precinct scanner (a machine).

Lumbar Puncture: Bennie Crabtree: This is amazing. Trump needs him to run.

Trump can refuse to debate Biden without Kanye there. Then, Trump shuts up and lets Biden whale on the African  American candidate.

Trump can also refuse to debate Biden but insist on debating Kanye. Biden is then denied debate time while Kanye gets tons of attention. And if anyone makes Kanye look amateur or bad, the result will be that Trump looks good.

Either way, Trump wins.

My favorite part of your post is where Trump's ego debates Kanye's ego and somehow Biden loses


I would love it if you had evidence that would not work. The last 6 years tells me, it will work like a charm and Biden loses in both scenarios.

You're the people who think "confidence" is a sign of a good leader, you dumbfarks. You even vote for "confidence". You farking vote for it.

Dude that is a twitter troll poll. People all over the world click whatever for shiats and giggles. I'm willing to bet over 80% of them can't vote or never vote. The other 20% just click kanye because they think he will take votes away from democrats. Look at rumps percentage, seems a bit low don't ya think? Biden usually comes out ahead on twitter but not by that much.


Even in a meaningless Twitter poll, Biden crushes Trump.
