Jangan Ki Lupa Dukung McqueeYaqueen!

SIAPA mi pilihan ta di pilpres ini?
“Siapa lagi? Kau bisa tebak ji pasti!”
Nomor 1 atau 2?
“Nomor 10 mo saya”
Dildo dong!

Beberapa hari yang lalu, di linimasa Twitter tagar McqueeYaqueen menjadi salah satu trending topic. Tagar itu hadir tak lain karena munculnya calon presiden dan wakil presiden poros ketiga yaitu: Nurhadi dan Aldo. Disingkat menjadi Dildo.

Meski sebagai pasangan fiktif, kehadiran Dildo menjadi sesuatu yang penting bagi kita. Di tengah riuh politik saling serang hingga hoax serta berbagai klaim, pemilu semakin terlihat seperti perang yang meledak-ledak. Mencuatnya tagar dari Dildo pun bisa memperlihatkan bahwa hiburan dalam politik bisa menjadi sebuah pilihan.

Mulai dari Facebook, Twitter hingga Instagram, pasangan Dildo tak hentinya menampilkan diri sebagai pasangan capres cawapres poros ketiga. Bila saja kita bisa berangan-angan, membayangkan pasangan seperti Dildo benar-benar ada, sepertinya itu akan menjadi tantangan berat bagi kubu Jokowi maupun Prabowo.

Pasalnya, dengan cara kejenakaan serta gaya khas yang apa adanya dan jelas berbeda dari biasanya, pasangan ini berhasil merebut perhatian khalayak dengan cepat.

Kita bisa melihat kembali beberapa waktu silam, sejak diumumkannya dua pasangan yang akan bertarung dalam Pilpres, tiap kelompok relawan pendukung mulai rutin mengkampanyekan pasangan pilihan masing-masing. Penyakit untuk menang sendiri dan merasa paling benar menjadi semakin melebar dan menjangkiti banyak orang.

Berbagai istilah, ungkapan, serta peristiwa yang beragam muncul satu per satu. Istilah cebong dan kampret terus menerus terdengar dengan mudahnya. Melontarkan istilah untuk lawan politik kemudian dianggap biasa saja dan dilakukan terus menerus. Tentu, ada pula yang merasa penat dengan perdebatan tanpa ujung itu.

Sejumlah kawan saya bahkan menggunakan meme Dildo sebagai foto profil media sosialnya. Beberapa lagi, membagikan quote khas dari pasangan fiktif dan semakin tampak jelas bila pasangan ini menjadi pelentur dari ketegangan politik kita hari ini.

Boleh juga, kehadiran Dildo bisa menjadi ruang istirahat bagi para pendukung fanatik tiap pasangan calon untuk keluar sejenak. Sulit sekali melihat para pendukung tiap pasangan berdamai. Semua hanya adu ego yang terus tumbuh dan entah sampai kapan.

Di tengah situasi seperti ini, mungkin kita akan rindu dengan sosok seperti Gus Dur. Kita butuh politikus yang mampu meredam konflik dengan humor dan gaya berpikir yang lebih fleksibel. Tapi harus diakui, menjadi jenaka serta memiliki kelenturan berpikir bukanlah sesuatu yang mudah untuk ditemui atau didapatkan.

Tak semua orang bisa jadi Gus Dur, tapi kita bisa belajar dari sosok seperti Gus Dur. Melawan ketegangan dengan cara yang serupa membuat kita berada di lingkaran setan. Yang ada hanyalah serangan psikis dari satu kelompok ke kelompok lainnya. Belum lagi, jika dari kelompok mengarah pada individu atau anggota yang ada.

Terkadang serangan psikis bisa menimbulkan luka yang lebih lama dibanding fisik. Dildo dengan segala program kerjanya datang sebagai pengingat untuk tetap damai dan waras terhadap diri sendiri. Hingga pengingat untuk tetap maha asyik walaupun digempur dengan berbagai ketegangan yang ada.

Dapat diprediksikan bila serangan politik dari satu kubu ke kubu lainnya akan semakin memanas menjelang pemilihan. Bila tak mampu mengendalikan diri dan hasrat merasa benar serta menang, bukan tidak mungkin kita rela menghancurkan segalanya, termasuk diri sendiri.

Belajar dari Dildo, walaupun sekadar pasangan fiktif, mereka hadir dengan suara yang jelas mengandung pesan penting. Seruan untuk mencoba melihat sekitar kita dengan cara yang tak biasa. Pun jika ada beberapa orang yang tak merasa tertarik atau menganggap Dildo tak berarti apa-apa, itu tak jadi masalah yang berarti bagi Dildo.

Sebagai negara demokrasi, politik humor menjadi sangat penting. Bilamana ada ketersinggungan lantaran komedi politik dari kelompok tertentu, sekiranya kita patut mengkhawatirkan label demokrasi yang kita yakini. Bahkan, salah satu temuan menarik dari Towson University Maryland tahun 2011 menjelaskan bila komedi politik mampu meningkatkan partisipasi politik masyarakat. Tak heran jika Dildo dengan segala hal yang dimiliki berhasil menjadi trending topic.

Sekiranya, kita bisa berharap kemasan komedi politik mampu menjadi alternatif bagi masyarakat untuk memahami situasi yang terjadi. Ditambah lagi, itu bisa menjadi salah satu hal untuk mengetahui bagaimana para politikus kita merespon berbagai komedi politik yang ada.

Semoga saja Indonesia bisa menjadi negara yang mampu memantaskan demokrasi dengan komedi serta segala harapan yang belum tercapai.

Jadi siapa mi kita dukung di hari H?
“Kau belum percaya kah?”
Serius itu mi kita dukung?
“Serius! Jangan ki lupa dukung McqueeYaqueen!”
