The Greatest Political Paradox Known to Mankind

  • 4 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

On the latest episode of the Get More Smarter Podcast, hosts Jason Bane and Ian Silverii discussed what might be the most impossible paradox in modern American politics:

 

This question is so difficult, in fact, that we decided to put it to a vote among readers of Colorado Pols.

By now you’ve probably heard the story about South Dakota Republican Gov. Kristi Noem — a theoretical potential choice to be Donald Trump’s running mate — boasting in her memoir about executing a puppy that wasn’t following her training commands. You’ve also no doubt seen the stories about independent Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., who quite literally has had part of his brain eaten by a worm.

Here’s the question: All other things being equal, would you prefer a candidate for President (or any elected office, really) who freely admitted to murdering an innocent dog…or a candidate whose brain has been partially eaten by a worm?

There is no third option in this quandary. Again, if everything else was equal, which candidate’s, um, background would be (relatively) easiest to square in your mind?

Which Candidate Would You Prefer?

  1. Maybe the worm would eat away a bad part of their personality. Anyone who would kill a dog rather then take it to a shelter doesn’t have any “good” tucked away somewhere.

  2. The worm likely was a type looking for its usual diet of pig — and the usual progression of such a worm inside a brain is limited eating, death, and then being surrounded by a cyst.

    All in all, it seems like most of us prefer damage from a worm (and possibly, damage from mercury poisoning) over the free choice of dealing with a puppy by shooting it (and then shooting a goat, for good measure, and proving to be incompetent at shooting so there was a need for a second shot on the goat).

    1. I know, right? It must have done something for her to kill the dog…she wanted more. It is a good thing none of the kids were in the yard.
