The Election Cycle


Becoming the idiot that no one wants to be around.

Flapping your lips at people that have shut their ears.

Looking like an angry ignorant asshat.

Arguing politics that you don’t understand with someone else who doesn’t understand politics.

Burning bridges with family, friends, and coworkers.

Realizing Donald Trump is an even bigger douche than you already thought he was.

Hating people that you don’t even know.

Having giant family arguments.

Drinking the Cool-Aid.

Burying your head in the sand.

Answering thoughtful questions with over simplified straw man scenarios.

Responding with non sequitur talking points.

Answering questions with questions.

Writing in sentence fragments.

Shutting off your brain to anything other than what you believed going in.
