I really wish the Democrats would have run someone who wouldn't have done such a good job of getting out the extreme right wing base of the Republican party.

"I know my parents to be fiscally conservative but over the years, with all of the Fox News watching, they bought into Hillary Hate. I don't think they like Trump they just hated Hilary."

And that, folks, is why Trump won. Hillary was the perfect candidate to mobilize the Republican base.

"my understanding of it is that vores really long for intimacy and protection."

Other potential motivations for the fantasy:

He may want to be the object of your intense desire. (Maybe you would never eat other men, but you've just got to have HIM. You know it's wrong, but he is going to be so delicious! You just CAN'T HELP YOURSELF! You're really GOING TO MISS HIM, but it would be SUCH A SHAME to not eat such a delicious piece of meat. You hope he understands and wants YOU to be happy. He'd let you do this if he truly loved you.)

He may want to be used for your pleasure and your pleasure only. (The cook and the diner do not care that the livestock would not want to be on the menu. The pig/cow/chicken is there for the diner to enjoy the meal. And many cooks really enjoy the opportunity to prepare something special with unusual or high-quality ingredients. You get to be BOTH THE COOK AND THE DINER. In role play, he may want to enjoy the experience of you enjoying him so much.)

Perhaps role play that you are preparing him for dinner? "Tenderize" his ass (spanking), clean him, oil him up, make him get on the table, and put an apple in his mouth? You can include commentary evaluating him as a piece of meat (nice rump!) and telling him how much you are looking forward to the meal. Leave him like that while you enjoy a nice glass of wine.

BTW, Thanksgiving is coming up. He might like to be your turkey.

It is not simply that Clinton was a horrible choice for mobilizing Democrats, given her pro-corporate record, her contempt of the left, her support for "ending welfare as we know it," profiting from private prisons, atrocious human rights abuses abroad as Secretary of State, corruption at the Clinton Foundation--including robbing money from Haitians who literally died because the aid was diverted to Friends of Bill, etc. Clinton was also a GREAT CHOICE FOR MOBILIZING the Republican base. The Republicans could have run Satan himself and the base would have still turned out to vote against Clinton because they would have seen Satan as the lesser evil. Everyone, including Clinton and the DNC, knew that the Republican base hated her that much.

And turnout was not down simply among "Bernie Bros." Turnout was down across the board. Turnout was not down because Bernie did not repeatedly urge his voters to support Clinton. It was down because the majority of voters--including millions who did not vote in the primaries--did not like either candidate. It was just down less among Republicans because they had a greater dislike of Clinton.

That's Emperor Palpatine with an ugly hairpiece! (The hood is a much better look.)

On the positive side, you can be sure YOU WON'T FIND ANY HAIR in that cake! Well, not human hair. Not quite sure what the rug is made of.

Here's another thought: In middle school and high school, many of the popular girls serve as enablers for the bullies. There are of course, many "beta males" who also lick the bullies' boots. As a bullied nerd--many of whom are genuinely nice (in terms of their values) even though they (WE) are socially awkward (not "nice" in the outgoing sense)--its hard not to resent anyone that supports those assholes who made their (our) lives a living Hell. Again, males who enable these assholes are bad. But so are the females who are impressed when theyu see them showing off their "manhood" (really cowardice) by beating up some poor kid who can't fight back. Maybe put it like this: Why are so many assholes popular in school and why do the popular kids want to date the assholes (who are also popular)? A lot of the answer, of course, is immaturity. Hopefully some of the girls who were impressed when E ambushed me in the locker room while I was getting changed have come to see the error of their ways. At the time, however, they were impressed by that asshole.
