hypocider asked: I don't know if it is because I am paying more attention this year ... but is it just me or is this election season a complete freak show?

Bread and circuses, only less bread, more circuses. I’m torn between wanting it to end and wanting to see how far this shit is going to go before it hits the fan.

hypocider asked: I don't know if this is true, but I heard that the main members of the Westboro Church all have law degrees that they use to sue families or friends who get violent towards them during their 'protests,' sounds like a low money scheme.

Actually, yeah, it IS true. Quite a few of them, including Fred Phelps, have law degrees - and they’re a fierce legal team. That’s why you should never, ever retaliate against a Phelps in a manner for which they can sue. Be creative instead.

Of course, I don’t condone violence at all. But if there’s anyone I can at least understand being violent towards, it would be the Phelps clan.
