This is the topic of discussion trending in politics on Reddit.com today and thought it would make for a good Friday afternoon laugh (edited for profanity):
Why is it that I constantly hear about crazy s**t Republicans are doing but I never hear about Democrats doing anything at all?
It's a curious question that struck me as funny. But what's more funny are the hilarious responses the questioner gets from his fellow liberal Reddit readers. Here's a sample:
- I said it in another post. Us Dems are always trying to reason, and "listen" to the other side no matter how batsh** insane it is. Republicans on the other hand come to fight, and if they have to use a broken bottle or boot pistol to win they won't lose sleep over it.
- [D]emocrats do all sorts of normal things, like pass healthcare form, it's just that the press knows that crazy sh** sells and reddit loves to point out lies and hypocrisy.

Thankfully there was at least one rational thinker in the bunch:
How sad that we live in a time where forcing people to buy something is considered "normal." By that standard, I guess the Mafia was pretty normal too.
