This week’s Dustinland isn’t about a story that’s repeated over and over again (although it is). It’s about a story about how people like to vote for whatever is the same. The same sex, race, religion, whatever. Forget the issues. Forget where they stand on the economy, foreign policy, blah blah blah. All that matters is if they’re just like me in the most shallow ways possible. Heck, I don’t care if they know how to run the government, as long as they seem like they’d be fun to have a beer with, that’s good enough for me.
To prove my point, remember how they were saying 100 million people would watch the debate last week? Only 50 million tuned in. What about the rest of America? Too busy watching UFC?
