I disconnected myself from the internet all weekend, and now, Sunday night, am checking political news. Luckily, the first thing I stumbled across is a man dressed as a wizard on C-SPAN making an argument about why he should be president. This I believe is all I need to learn on the urgent matter of the republican primary coming up on Tuesday in New Hampshire.
He embodies the absurdity of the political circus. And even though he is essentially a joke candidate, I can’t help but imagine that he is not so different from the destructive dictators that have gained power all over the world throughout the past century.
I closed Google News after watching the above short clip and was content to resume reading academic papers where there are no clowns in giant hats and the game is played with a slightly more honorable intention.
