Politics can definitely be heavy. The election of 2020 is undoubtedly serious. Especially as our next presidential term will begin amidst a pandemic, racial injustice, and severe inequality. But let’s be honest with ourselves: politics can totally be hilarious too. Sometimes we just have to lean into that aspect a bit more in order to keep sane.

Let’s rank some of the best, cringiest, and funniest moments from the Democratic National Convention. Upvote your favorites!

#1 The Calamari Comeback State

This one is my favorite by far. Rhode Island State Party Chairman, Joseph M. McNamara stood right beside a silent, masked man who held a plate of calamari. He then referred to Rhode Island as the “Calamari Comeback State” which just sent me. Please, just watch it. It’s one of those “you had to have been there” things.

#4 The Sheer Volume of Actual Republicans

We’ve seen John Kasich’s appearance already, but I just think it’s hilarious that we’ve gotten to a point where the two-party system is so broken. Republicans can’t back their own party, and Democrats (who once vilified even the most moderate Republicans) are greeting them with open arms.
