Election Aftermath by Eric Porteous • November 7, 2012 It got old watching TV ads about why 'Politician A' is so awful and why 'Politician B' is practically a canonized saint. I got sick of opening my mailbox only to throw away multiple print ads everyday. I got tired of the mud-slinging, name-calling, and lying that seems to spread through every election I've voted in. Finally it's over! I can get back to my normal life, and my friends can get back to posting more pointless memes on Facebook.
