I feel like I need to apologize or something for my election post.
It was meant to be satire, and I thought that by talking about aliens and Bill Pullman and Jesus Christ and the Scarlet Letter that readers would understand that I was going over the top and was using satire to make a point and my point being this, after every election, many people paint with broad brush strokes, labeling every Republican a Bible-thumping idiot or every Democrat a tree-hugging hippie.
I was simply hoping to get the point across that there are educated and good people to be found on both sides of the political aisle. That both parties have some valid opinions. That there’s no need to panic the morning after. That checks and balances work. That the Constitution for the most part, works. That essentially every human in America wants the same things … health, prosperity, and happiness and that some find reaching that goal the most possible in one party and some find that most possible in another. It doesn’t make them bad people. I chose to try to make that point with satire, and for some, it was insulting and they’ve emailed me and let me know.
Next satirical post will begin with, “Disclaimer: This is satire. Do not email the author all ‘I AM UNFRIENDING YOU ON FACEBOOK, YOU BIG JERK.'”
