Robbie, I learned not to take anything you say seriously anyhow. And I read your manual... your old manual was better.

Too much has changed or is changing at this instant in American politics to treat voting as seriously as it should be. At one point, a more-than-dual voting party system not only worked, but was healthy for the country.

But today, I fear that too many voters stepped into the booth and thought, "Republican, republican, republican... yes, yes, yes.... " Or replace that with Democrat.

I don't think the best candidates have any opportunity to be elected. The road to a political office is paved with gold and favors... and if you ain't getting gold and/or favors, you have no chance to get into office, no matter how qualified you are.

Page 1, Chapter 1 of the Robbie Parry Manual begins:

"Congratulations on your purchase of this Robbie Parry standard model, EX88A7. To get the most from your Robbie, please be sure to read all instructions thoroughly. For fast set-up please refer to the 'Fast Set-up' sheet. For Your Safety! Before using Robbie for the first time, read the safety instructions in '26 Things About Robbie That You Should Worry About' (xiii-xvi)

N.B. Don't take anything seriously that Robbie says if he uses a smiley.
Memory card sold separately."

Looks like we're headed for recounts in both the Florida and Arizona Senate races, as well as Florida governor.  Rick Scott is already out there making baseless, inflammatory accusations of fraud a la Trump.
