Remember when being stupid was a disqualifier for participating in a civilized society?

If you've never read Ta-Nehisi Coates' essay where he declares Trump to be America's first white president, it's well worth the time. The gist is that his entire candidacy rested on being a proud white man taking back the power from that racial usurper Obama, that he possessed no other qualities that made him a credible candidate. That he won was a validation of his racist revenge call. The essay ignores the sexism behind his candidacy in favour of race, but it's still a powerful piece of argument.

I like the idea that it's in a frame. To really show it off as art.

There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

I really didn't like Idiocracy with its not-so-subtle echoes of eugenics and cultural elitism, but shit like this keeps throwing itself in my face as a rebuttal.

I couldn't tell if I didn't find it funny because the jokes were weak or because I just shut down at the entire premise. Especially strange and sad given how much I love Office Space and King of the Hill.
