Democracy Lessons from a Scotsman

Allright, so the election is over (finally!). I am as much a news and political junkie as there is out there, but this last election cycle took it all out of me. As with the way Michigan Football is going this season, my choice for President lost. Still, it was a historic night for America and its good to see more people interested and involved in the process (only to see their young idealism be crushed once reality sets in, but I digress). One of the nice things about this election cycle was that I started to watch the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and saw some of the funniest, wittiest stuff said about politics and the electorate in a long time. He doesnt espound one ideology or another, but just takes shots at both sides for what they are doing wrong and helps ground you as to what’s really important. I embedded one of my favorite clips from the past few months to show you what I mean, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

By the way, Ferguson is from Scotland, hence the title of this post.
