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.

Dear ‘Muricans: Why I Like Hillary

Recently I was asked why I support Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton and want to see her become the 45th President of the United States. The tone with which I was asked indicated the questioner believed it was mainly because she is a woman. To my own ears, my response sounded defensive and disjointed — like [&hellip

No, this isn’t my belated presidential campaign announcement. As a close observer of the U.S. political process, I’d rather wake up with my head sewn to the carpet than willingly subject myself to that nonsense. What I’m saying is that I’m over it. Done.

Mass Shooting Mad Lib

Since each time a mass shooting happens, everyone says and does the exact same damn things—resulting in no action whatsoever that would have the slightest effect on the amount of times we have to deal with these senseless tragedies—we thought it would make more sense to report these fill-in-the-blank/mad lib style.

Nothing is simple in American politics. There are more steps to getting elected than there were to assemble my Ikea daybed and that shit took 3 adults 1 month to successfully build and even then the drawers still wouldn’t work right.

The Snap: It’s exhausting to be a Congressperson these days. Between suing the president, blocking legislation and appearing on cable news, there’s barely any time to fundraise for your next campaign.
