The Election is Over — You Can All Stop Being Unpleasant to One Another

Wow, I just saw someone I’ve known and liked for 25 years brag about telling someone who complained about the economy that she couldn’t be as fat and ugly as she is, if she had really been hurt by the economy. I didn’t even see the interaction; he thought it made him so awesome he should repeat it.

Put aside the whole science thing where you are more likely to be fit eating organic wild salmon than Ramen noodles . . .

With the election over, I was really hoping that my friends on both sides of the aisle would stop saying such awful and close-minded things with such regularity. Is it so wrong that I think people should care about the issues and not just trash talk the other team, treating politics like a drunk sporting event?
