I'm reading Absurdistan by Gary Shteyngart.A hilarious book. I’m also reading the ads for the local candidates. Equally hilarious but, unlike Abrurdistan, illogical.
For example. "[My Opponent] thinks that your money is his." No one can know what [my opponent] or anyone else thinks (except for the said opponent). Even more importantly, it only matters how this opponent acts. What they could have written "[my Opponent] ACTS AS IF your money is his." More logical and powerful. Logic has no power in the time of the sound bites. So instead of voting for your local tongue-tongues politician, vote Mr. Lenin (yes, he is alive).Of course, this is not a presidential election yet, but one can dream.
