Dog Shit On The Sidewalk

Today is election day in the US so I’m doing my part with this inspiring funny quote from Derek Powazek

I’m the great American middle. I get my news from television when I’m barely awake. Half-biased news, half paid attention to. I treat politics like dog shit on the sidewalk – I avoid it as much as possible, but every once in a while I forget and get some on my shoe. Then I hope the stink doesn’t linger too long.

Derek is pretty self deprecating there but from the rest of his post you see he does pay some attention to politics. It’s the people to whom that quote applies verbatum that frighten me.
