So, like most, I'm not happy that Donald Trump is our new president. Unlike most, apparently, I do have something to be happy about in this cycle: it's been confirmed that our votes do actually count.

Some people claim that there is no difference between the two parties. Feel free to believe that, however WaPo put together this article that illustrates the differences through the years.
Yes, Republicans were the liberal party before the early 1960's. Yes, the Dixiecrats were the racist bunch.

Zoltan Istvan is the Transhumanist party's candidate for president this election. If you're not happy with the mainstream options (and want giant chainsaw hands on your robot body), Zoltan is your man... for now.

"We are a group of very unconcerned citizens who are tired of not being able to come to the post office without some worthy cause vying for our attention and nagging at our conscience," said Taylor. "We would like clear, quiet streets again so that we can be oblivious to the needs of this community and be content with our own lives."

Actually a comedy skit depicting a couple of Finns as they deliver their hard hitting coverage of the presidential election in the United States.
This faux journalism is subtitled in English for your convenience.

We seem to get a big mess of confusion in the United States every four years when it comes to presidential elections.
If you want a good read on the topic, you will find that both of the major political parties divvy up their delegates in a moderately unfair fashion in order to nominate a candidate.
According to the 2016 rules, the Dems need 2382 delegates out of 4763 total, of which 712 delegates are unpledged (superdelegates)
According to the 2016 rules, the Republican Party nominee needs 1237 delegates out of 2472 total delegates. But each state gets at least 10 at-large delegates who are not committed and additional ones. Some states are winner-take-all and others apportion their delegates by percentage (sounds fairer to me).

Seth Myers takes a look at the political posturing - the jiggery pokery, as it were - that started immediately after the untimely death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia. He take a few pokes at the GOP debate, then gets in a dig at Marco Rubio, who insists the Constitution be interpreted as it was originally meant - except for the part about the president nominating a Supreme Court justice, of course.

It's silly season again. Perhaps you don't know which candidate for president is closest to your liking. Fortunately, there is a Website that can sort it all out for you. The site will ask you a few demographic questions and then some issue questions. When you are all done you can see which candidate you are closest to. You can also indicate which issues are most important to you and let it overweight them.

Perennial political candidate Vermin Supreme filed papers on Friday to run for the presidential primary in New Hampshire. In a field that includes 30 Republicans and 28 Democrats, the Maryland Democrat stands out for his unique headgear, lush, wizard-like beard, and consistently pro-pony platform.

Our friends at Bad Lip Reading have covered the recent Democratic Presidential Debate. Fortunately, to be fair, they also covered the first Republican Presidential Debate from back in August as well.

It turns out that former Governor Bush rankled Colbert by holding an unauthorized raffle for a ticket to the show. Colbert responds by holding his own raffle, but it's for charity.
