A hardcore Tea Partier confessed on YouTube that he might have to vote for Hillary, because he likes his Obamacare.

Conservative video blogger James Webb posted the uncharacteristically glum admission to his channel, Hot Lead Retired, which covers “having fun and Shooting [sic] all types of weapons from semi to full auto and other fun stuff that hillbilly’s [sic] do.”

“I’m kinda having a difficult decision. I don’t know which party to vote for in the upcoming 2016 election,” he murmured in the video, entitled “This Tea Party Patriot May Vote For Hillary.”

Webb — the “Commie-hating, Obama-hating, lead-spraying” gun enthusiast, charter member of a local Tea Party Patriot chapter, and stalwart Republican voter for 32 years — took a sober look at the last 15 years of his life and realized that the Democrats had done considerably more to help him out than Republicans ever did. Webb was able to retire at the age of 50, he says, thanks to the conservative bête noire, the Affordable Care Act, aka “Obamacare.”

With weary resignation, Webb concluded: “I’m leaning toward voting for Hillary unless something major comes up. I don’t trust the Republicans anymore. They’re wanting to repeal the Obamacare. And I don’t want to do that, man.”

“I dont know… just a tough decision”

In case anyone suspects Webb doesn’t have the Tea Party bona fides, you are free to peruse his various video rants, in which he calls Ferguson protesters “worthless thugs,” blames the insidious influence of the media for turning his coffee gay, and expounds on his decision to boycott The Walking Dead because it featured a gay kiss. (“There’s no way gays can survive a zombie attack,” Webb says. “They’re too weak. It’s unrealistic.”)

If we were to lose the bees, as now seems increasingly likely, humanity would collapse after four years. They pollinate about a third of our food. But if the insects were to disappear altogether, then even more than our food supply and quality of life would be affected. Entire ecosystems and inevitably civilization itself would collapse. Even now an enormous proportion of world insect species are endangered. Without them half of all birds would disappear and our world would become unrecognizable, a world we would not want to inhabit.

This Tuesday, October 4 is the official release date for New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman’s new book, Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America. Excerpts from the book have been widely reported, and one of the anecdotes being reported by Axios involves Trump’s desire to display the Superman logo when he was discharged from Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland in October 2020.
