Everyone has one – that opinionated, though largely under informed, relative, friend, or acquaintance, that we dread having a conversation with. Our kinder, gentler side tells us we need to play nice with the crazy person, after all, who else will put up with them? And so, inevitably, an occasion arises where Drunk Uncle is pity invited to join the family to dine, and somehow and inevitably, ends up commanding the room.

We have swallowed the Kool-Aid, jumped the shark, and lifted the horse’s tail.
…and in so doing, created a world imagined by Phillip K. Dick, Hunter Thompson, Mike Judge, and Stephen King. Curated by Gary Larson, Louie CK, and Rod Serling…and now occupied by even our Brightest Lights, who have been sucked into this Black Hole along with the rest of us.

The Shitgibbon is not The problem. The Hordes of Darkness are The Problem.
It just took them this long to find someone as incompetent, ill-informed, addle-brained, self absorbed, graceless, clueless, and morally corrupt as they are, who is willing to lead them in their war against common sense, reason, tolerance, progress, and humanity.

If only Orkin had a spray for these pests….
