The only time YouTube (or any website) gives me Republican political ads instead of a barrage of the Democratic ones is when I listen to the chief Ukrainian ideologue Arestovich. He’s a brilliant man, speaks beautifully, and has the kind of insight that is sorely lacking in the world since Zygmunt Bauman’s death. I was listening to Arestovich explain why the EU is a doomed project when the video was interrupted by a Ron DeSantis ad.
Folks, oy vey, someone make this go away. I love DeSantis’s policies. He’s amazing. But I don’t think he can win nationally. He has a horrible voice and the charm of a meat grinder. I love the words he’s saying but the voice and the affect are so off-putting, I didn’t listen to the end. Most normies outside of Florida have absolutely no idea who he is. I don’t know how he’ll be able to win them over.
