Fighting makes me feel icky. When people disagree, part of me wants to curl up into the fetal position and pretend it isn’t happening. That’s the part that just wishes everyone would get along. But everyone doesn’t get along. Pretending there aren’t differing opinions on significant issues that impact our daily lives is not just [

Dear-sweet-mother-of-pearl, this campaign season just will not end! It feels like we’ve been hearing about 2016 since 2013—probably because we have—but finally we have the major party conventions behind us.

We have to hand it to the Donald: The Republican National Convention was sure-as-shit entertaining to watch with him dry-humping the corpse of the party of Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt into the ground.

It was clear months ago that there were no more grown-ups left in the room. Presidential candidates seemed caught between being in their “terrible two’s” and the awkward bully stage of junior high school.
