jakke asked: Let's say Hillary Clinton doesn't decide to run. What would you want to happen in 2016? What do you think would actually happen in 2016?

I’d like to see Elizabeth Warren sweep into the White House on an upwelling of populist anti-oligarch outrage. I’d like to see the two-party system completely dismantled in one election cycle. I’d like a constitutional amendment overturning Citizens United, another rationalizing the way congressional districts are drawn, and another mandating public funding of all elections. I’d like all those amendments ratified within the year by state houses full of actual public servants, instead of petty bickering children playacting the same battles fought by their grandfathers. Basically, I’d like all the most terrible things about the way we run this country to disappear overnight.

What will actually happen is definitely not that. Hillary or some other safely centrist lifer will get the nomination, go up against a stuffed shirt who will receive an alarming percentage of the popular vote solely by virtue of being a white man, and whoever wins will abandon each and every plank of their campaign platform the second they become inconvenient to fundraising.

I’m still going to vote though. I mean, what else can you do?

One nice thing about allergy season is that a $3 bottle of wine is perfectly serviceable, since you can’t smell or taste anything anyway.

Sorry, I meant to say the one nice thing. The rest of it sucks, without exception.

One pound dried chickpeas (~450g) + lemon juice +olive oil + tahini + a serrano pepper + garlic = approximately two quarts (~1.7 L) of hummus. Which is simultaneously more than I thought it would make and also probably not enough to last the weekend, considering the way I devour any and all available hummus.

Anyway this all cost about $5. Why do people buy hummus at the store, again?

Filed under this may be the quintessential post to my blog hi my name is jason and 1) i'm cheap 2) i like to eat oh and 3) on a typical saturday night i stay at home and cook
