A conversation about polictics, over two days
by Mr. Sheehy
J: I’m stressed. Election anxiety already.
Me: You can’t let that stuff get to you. You make your pick, and you wait patiently, ignoring all that cable TV kind of stuff.
J: Who did you pick?
Me: I don’t like either of them.
J: Lesser of two-evils kind of thing?
Me: I heard it best the other day–We’re not choosing between the lesser of two evils, we’re choosing the evil of two lessers.
A day passes
Me: You asked me who I supported for President, and it’s come to me!
Me: I’m writing in Dave Ramsey, so that in eight years the leaders of the Senate and House can gather in the Oval Office and the Budgeter-in-Chief can make them all yell in unison, “WE’RE DEBT FREE!”
J: We’re never gonna get out of debt.
Me: Yeah, but if Dave Ramsey were Presdient at least we’d be trying.
