A thought for more thoughts to go.

I love political comedians. I've been watching Colbert and Oliver talk about presidencies and ridiculousness and everything in between for most of my adult life now. Every time I watch lately now I can't help but wonder what it is about the segments that make me laugh through a cringe. I think I've finally found it. While it's necessary to call out bullshit and it's necessary to laugh (I love coping mechanisms so much) it is gross when done in a dehumanizing manner. See: Brené Brown's take on dehumanization and American politics.
