Political Discourse in 2016

Ah, political discourse in 2016. 

*The sarcastic jabs of an Oscar Wilde? - “There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.”
*The dry, acerbic wit of a Mark Twain? - "Reader, suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.” 
*The down-home wisdom of a Will Rogers? - "Too many people spend money they haven't earned, to buy things they don't want, to impress people that they don't like.”
*The cutting, angry attacks of a George Carlin? -  “Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.” 


"Shut up, faggot." 
Wow. He really got me there. Just tore me a new one;  proved me wrong; persuaded all, including me, of the error of my philosophy. Made me realize how we can make America great again; showed the moral superiority for which we are so famed. Held the moral high ground; showed the depths to which I have sunk.

And this is my "friend". The candidates are even worse.
