The Punk Political Party


OK, I know that if some of my best friends read this entry, they're going to be pissed, but I'll say it anyway:

The Republican party is to politics what punk is to music.

Both decry anything "elite," both privilege raw emotion and anger over intelligence and expertise--not that they have no use for intelligence or expertise; they're just not as important as being pissed off. Both say that exploring solutions isn't as important as venting your rage over the fact that you've been wronged by the system.
