[…] BALTIMORE – Bloomberg tells us that people are being driven crazy by the election… Here’s the report:
More than half of you – on both sides of the aisle – say the 2016 election is a major source of stress, according to a new survey from the American Psychological Association.
“Historically, work, money, and the economy are the top three,” said clinical psychologist Lynn Bufka, part of the APA’s Stress in America team that has been conducting surveys of what freaks us out the most for 10 years. “Now it’s [the election] right up there.”
We read the Diary mailbag. We know our Dear Readers are troubled, too. Half are mad because they think we are soft on Hillary. Half are mad because we are hard on Donald. And the other half expect us to come out of the closet any day with an endorsement of Gary Johnson.
“Big Nurse” Hillary makes us cringe. And “Big Dope” Donald makes us laugh. Which one would do most harm? You decide. But could there be any better argument against popular democracy?
God help us if either of them wins the presidential race…
