2020 Primary Calendar

Today is the day of the long-anticipated Iowa caucuses.

So I thought I'd better put up my quadrannual (I just made up that word) Presidential Primary Calendar!

I'm still checking dates and places, and I've largely omitted any Republican contests since Trump obviously has the Republican party locked down to within an inch of its life.

Here is it. Mistakes are likely, and all mine.

Impeached President Tries to Start War

Trump has been impeached, so to throw off the spotlight he ordered the assassination of a demonstrably bad guy; but since this bad guy was like the number two guy in Iran (a nation we currently aren't at war with) they are understandably pissed.

In the few days after the event, Trump has taken a more war-like stance, by threatening total war if Iran strikes back in any way. Along with threatening to destroy historic and cultural sites in Iran, which by definition is a war crime.

My fear is that there will be one or more attacks on Trump properties, which will send Dear Leader completely over the edge and result in launching nukes. And the Republicans have ensured nobody will stop this mad man, so we'll soon be dealing with a post-apocalyptic hellscape because Trump is a douchebag.

Hell of a time to be alive! (currently 8pm EST on Jan. 7th 2020...I can't tell you if we'll be here tomorrow)
