Today, focus on: INCUMBENT.
Definition: In a political race, the person currently in office. Donald Trump is the incumbent in the 2020 U.S. Presidential elections.
Lefty says: “If we don’t vote out the incumbent, we’re in for 4 more years of authoritarianism, bro. But worst of all, incoherent tweets with bad grammar, and that’s where Democrats draw the line.“
Righty says:“Let’s keep the incumbent where he is, by democratic process or by force. We’ve finally got the right guy in office, and he’s not ready to leave.”
About our (fictive) correspondents:
Arthur ‘Lefty’ Treehugger, Founder, Ponchos Illustrated. Born and raised on a pumpkin collective in rural Vermont, Arthur Treehugger grew up in the warm glow of free love, improvised guitar circles and herbal remedies. Arthur’s true passion is Ponchos, and his self-published e-magazine magazine is the number two poncho and raincoat magazine in the US, with a daily circulation of nearly 300.
Politically, Arthur is the definition of liberal; a true ‘bleeding heart’. Arthur is left-handed, left-brained and only turns left at stop signs.
Walton ‘Righty’ Carmichael Jr, Editor, Death & Taxes Quarterly. Deep in the heart of Georgia, land of peaches and voter suppression, the Carmichael Family has raised 7 seven generations of true American Patriots, culminating with Walton Jr. He abides by the guiding principles of family, fishing, freedom and God. His self-published e-magazine, “Death and Taxes” presents a libertarian view on today’s world.
A libertarian-leaning conservative, Walton identifies with the right wing of today’s GOP and would very much like to make and/or keep America great.
