      Joe Biden has a problem. Silicon Valley billionaires think they have a solution.

      Election Day is less than six months away, and Democrats are scrambling to patch the digital deficits of their presumptive nominee. And behind the scenes, Silicon Valley’s billionaire Democrats are spending tens of millions of dollars on their own sweeping plans to catch up to President Donald Trump’s lead on digital campaigning — plans that are poised to make them some of the country’s most influential people when it comes to shaping the November results.

      These billionaires’ arsenals are funding everything from nerdy political science experiments to divisive partisan news sites to rivalrous attempts to overhaul the party’s beleaguered data file. They are pushing their favored, sometimes peculiar, fixes to a political ailment just like they might if on the board of a struggling startup.

      This is all unfolding as the pandemic forces campaigns to pivot away from door-knocks and packed rallies and toward data mining and influencer marketing — which in many ways play to the strengths of these tech titans, making them even more influential at a time when many in the Democratic Party are uneasy with just how powerful some in tech have become.

      In every vote that must be done
      There is an element of fun
      You find the fun and snap!
      The vote’s a game
      And every task you undertake
      Becomes a piece of cake
      A lark! A spree! It’s very clear to see that
      A Spoonful of bullshit helps the Biden go down
      The Biden go down-wown
      The Biden go down
      Just a spoonful of bullshit helps the Biden go down
      In a most disgusting way
      A Gates feathering his nest
      Has very little time to rest
      While gathering his billions of bucks
      Though quite intent in his pursuit
      He has a socialist to boot
      He knows a song will move the job along – for
      A spoonful of bullshit helps the Biden go down
      The Biden go down-wown
      The Biden go down
      Just a spoonful of bullshit helps the medicine go down
      In a most disgusting way

      I always watch them with amusement because they are so transparent.

      It’s what our democracy has become. Your choice of one mentally incapacitated ignorant old white man or another. The diversity and excitement of the Democratic primary is replaced by the exact same kind of fool who is currently in office. Billionaires certainly have a type and it’s pretty pathetic.
