I’m exhausted hearing about, reading about, and thinking about the election. But when you stop and think about it, that’s a good thing. I’m engaged. People are engaged. Voter turnout has been strong, although still, in my view, pathetic. (Vote goddammit! Put some skin in the game. Invest. Risk getting burned – or this year getting Berned. Argue with your friends. C’mon. Be a grownup!)
Back to prime time. It’s important (I remind myself) to maintain a sense of humor in these times. And so, the other morning in the shower—where great vocal performances and great thoughts occur—I thought I had a million-dollar idea. I toweled off, dressed, and hit my computer—but of course, the Internet’s collective brain had beaten me to it. By a mile. There were already “Make America Hate again” bumper stickers and other paraphernalia for sale. Oh well. Behind again.
But I was reminded: The answer to end-is-nigh pessimism? A good laugh. Inoculation against strident, self-righteous self-seriousness? Humor. Here are some of the bits that have kept me sane over the past couple weeks:
- Hillary Clinton Appears Before Rally Completely Nude In Bid For Authenticity
- Make Donald Drumpf again
- Sanders Impresses Florida Voters By Jumping From Hotel Balcony Into Pool
- We Shall Over…
- Female Presidential Candidate Who Was United States Senator, Secretary Of State Told To Be More Inspiring
- Libertarian touts socialism…
Share ‘em. We’re gonna need ‘em.
P.S. Loosely related but worth it…
