“There is a tragic flaw in our precious Constitution, and I don’t know what can be done to fix it. This is it: Only nut cases want to be president.”- Kurt Vonnegut
I don’t know if you guys have heard but there’s an election coming up on Tuesday. I feel like there should be more single issue, insultingly simplistic Super PAC funded ads letting people know about the election and the downsides of various candidates and policies, especially in the races that are highly contested. It’s all about awareness raising, you know? And you’re never more aware of something than when you’re nauseatingly overexposed to it courtesy of intellectually insulting pleas made nigh incessantly by people who voluntarily engage in mass chanting political slogans in their free time.
I can’t help but observe that politics makes very smart people say and do some astonishingly stupid things.
