It occurs to me that the selection of the Democratic presidential nominee bears a striking resemblance to the reality TV show, The Bachelor. Both efforts are supposedly about choosing a winner by intangible, arbitrary, and constantly-moving standards, run by a cadre of people who we never see, with a goal of creating as much drama as possible. Ostensibly, the objective is to find the perfect candidate to fill the slot, and produce a happy relationship, but anyone who wants to win either contest should be considered suspiciously ill-inentioned, at best, or mentally ill, at worst. Just a thought. I’m working through the similarities during shower time.
