There’s a pink pig with purple spots in the middle of the table, slurping food off plates, grunting and farting in our faces, but we all ignore it. We wait until the noises settle down and then discuss the weather or something that’s ever so polite. We all see, hear and smell the thing but refuse to acknowledge its existence.
Life isn’t always pretty, but ignoring it doesn’t make it go away. Many times ignoring something just makes the matter worse. Ever see pigs going after the guys with the feed bucket? They’re determined little porkers, and there isn’t any way he’d get away with ignoring them.
In that spirit, I’ve begun asking an Oinker of the Day question about things we won’t or don’t want to discuss.
Today’s little piggy is: Is it better to vote for a candidate who “sucks less” than another candidate or to just not vote at all?
