And now this word
Don't take yesterday's post wrong. I'll continue to comment on this year's elections (and lots of other things.) I  just wanted to make it clear that I've gotten past taking any of this very seriously. This does nothing to undermine my ability to snipe at megalomaniacs.

This could be the wrong blog to read for those who participate in idolatry of politicians. Then again, it may be just what they need. Sorry if I've pied anyone's pie-eyed sanctimony concerning the high holy days of American electoral politics. The pie washes right off and it's nontoxic because it's only made of words. And as we learned in New Hampshire, words don't matter. Unless of course they are aimed at an incredibly over-privileged 'victims.'

Despite their impotent yet evil nature, words will continue to be the stock in trade of this website.

Onward and elsewhere!

PS - Speaking of words, Nick Zaino of the Optimistic Curmudgeon found some interesting ones primary night in New Hampshire.
