Make Them Mad

Andrew Binion, one of my co-workers, wrote one of the best, funniest columns I’ve read about this political season. He says if we want to really know what we need to about the candidates, we need to make them mad.

We need to enrage the presidential candidates.

I don’t mean cast our ballots or caucus votes for third parties. I mean personally offend the candidates. Make them angry at you. Tell them that you have the same shoes at home and paid half what they paid. Ask them if they’ve seen an obscure 1970s science fiction movie, then look down your nose when they answer they never heard of it.
