Sometimes, a low-key journalist has to let go. And of course, just because you're loud and blunt and outspoken doesn't mean you're wrong.
GQ, of all publications, seems to be getting political these days. First, Keith Olbermann doing daily commentaries on the GQ Channell on YouTube, and now this -- as direct a political screed as you might ever read about a presidential candidate. Written by Drew Magary, the piece...well, let's just give you the title because that pretty much gives you an idea: "If You Vote for Trump, Then Screw You."
The short version is that Mr. Magary is through trying to have reasonable, pointed discussions with people who make very clear they don't want to participate in return and revel with pride in being called "deplorable." And so, rather than continue a one-sided debate, he's had enough and explains as clearly as he can why.
Thanks to Eric Boardman for bringing this to my attention. You can read the whole thing here. And if you agree with the title, you should. It's very cathartic, and a vibrant case of tour de force writing.
If you don't agree with the title...well, come back later, we'll have something more fun for you this afternoon...
