So I don’t know about you guys but I am absolutely mind blown by how well this community covered this entire campaign. This makes quite a bit of sense given the fact that we are pretty much core members of the poker diaspora and the poker diaspora has proven to be a pretty rich fishery talent wise since BF.
I’ve got a few takeaways from this election that I’m still working on, but one of them is that the people on this forum are not stupider than the people running Democratic Party campaigns. We’re going to find out when this is all over that they raised vastly more money than the GOP and got outspent on digital. That’s political malpractice that there isn’t one person on this board stupid enough to make.
Elizabeth Warren ran a pretty competitive campaign considering Elizabeth Warren, and I’m pretty convinced that the biggest reason it went as well as it did is that her staff was not from the usual politics talent pool.
We need to get into this game for the good of the country. Our side is desperately lacking competence at every level. These people need people who actually understand how to make decisions in a scientific way. We need to find a way in, and then once one of us is in they need to smuggle everyone else in. We can do to politics what we did to poker and just ruin if for the old guard entirely.
