Doom and Gloom Is Their Shtick

I’m fighting the urge to look at YouTube late night clips about the RNC, even though I’d probably enjoy the commentary from Colbert and others.

I know that there will also be clips of the actual speeches from various Republican luminaries and loudmouths, and I just don’t want to listen to any of it. Sounds like they painted quite the apocalyptic picture last night, which wouldn’t seem to be the most enlightened way of inspiring American greatness. It’s difficult to imagine anyone but the flat earthers and anxious bunker builders actually believing any of it.

Fear sells, sadly, but maybe folks can step back and ask themselves whether or not such tactics are the most honest and appealing approach.
