John Bolton has been destroying things for as long as we can remember. But we used to assume he had some sort of evil genius secret plan. Based on how badly he blew his attempt at timing his impeachment testimony to his book release, we’re starting to think Bolton is just an idiot whose destructiveness has been because he’s stupid.
Now John Bolton has found a whole new way to blow it. Even though he’s obviously concluded that Donald Trump is a traitor, he announced tonight that he’s writing in some random name instead of voting for Joe Biden. This is everything that’s stupid about politics.
Either Biden or Trump will be President. When you wake up the day after the election, one of these two guys will be President for the next four years. Pick one. There is no scenario in which you stomp your feet loudly enough and then you wake up the next day and somehow neither of them is President. Voting third party in a presidential election is for narcissists and crybabies who don’t care about the damage and destruction that Trump is doing.
