Politicians eat it

It says here that Cynthia Nixon’s bagel order was “horrifying.” (She ordered lox on a cinnamon raisin bagel.) What horrifies me is the possibility that the candidate I’m going to vote for might lose because of bagel incorrectness.

Of course it seems likely that this sort of thing amuses pundits but has never once decided an election. There seems to be one of them every year. (Gore Kerry got caught putting incorrect cheese on his cheesesteak, so Bush lied and said he hadn’t done the same, but that’s not why he won. I would vote for a candidate with good ideas even if she put mayo on a cheesesteak.)

The whole thing is symbolic. (Symbolic of junk, as Mel Brooks would say.) I the politician love you people so much that I will choke down whatever alleged food you love. As long as the people who think “That’s just your education talking” is a reasonable argument get one vote each (and I see no better alternative), we have to be able to get down on all fours and look at things from the voter’s point of view.

Reminder: I am not a reactionary; I am a condescending liberal elitist. Just because people think that being a successful businessperson is a qualification for the presidency, and that Trump was one, doesn’t mean they should face financial ruin if they dare to get sick.
