Before We Bash

mud

Before we bash the leaders of the election debacle for everything under the sun, we might consider getting off our high horse long enough to recall…

  • times we have slung our own share of mud at family members, exes, bosses, coworkers, neighbors, teachers, and cable companies
  • hyperbolic indictments we have made against rivals or merely those who disagreed with, or contradicted us
  • grudges we have held
  • bridges we have burned
  • blame and shame we have passed around like a virus
  • reputations we have tarnished with adolescent-like gossip

After all, the debacle would not be happening if we “noble Americans” and humanoids were not such practiced and gullible targets for pathetically embarrassing and immature tactics.

I detest the deafening static of the election as much as anyone, so I am not suggesting we should embrace it; only that we should look at the TV or computer screen carefully enough to see our own reflection staring back at us.
