Friends and family often ask me why I enjoy politics as much as I do. “It’s important,” I tell them, “and it’s a privilege,” which it is. But sometimes it’s also so silly that its entertainment value far exceeds films, television, or any other outlet.
Take, for instance, Thinx label Icon Undies’ somewhat uninformed and but legit hilarious attempt at self-promotion by latching onto the upcoming confirmation fight over Brett Kavanaugh. They sent care packages to the women in the US Senate in order to help sustain them through a filibuster. Er … who wants to tell them?
