  1. Campaign Fatigue By Rhonda Hansome

    Thursday, October 27, 2016

    I thought I had Campaign Fatigue.

    It's really Cognitive Dissonance in disguise.

    Festinger's (1957) cognitive dissonance theory suggests that we have an inner drive to hold all our attitudes and beliefs in harmony and avoid disharmony (or dissonance)

    Dilbert offers an example of Cognitive Dissonance: 

    It's no secret the DNC stacked the deck against my original choice. 

    Thanks a lot!

     I struggle daily to maintain the delusion, illusion, magical thinking that my part in the
     American Electoral Process
    means something.

    Day by day the Wikileaks drip, drip, drip makes me feel like I can't defend my lesser of two evils.

    Sisyphus had it easy compared to what this electoral cycle has done to my psyche.

    I'm simultaneously in on and the victim of a national election joke.

    I'm not for a candidate I'm against the other.

    Without enthusiasm, I say vote.
    In the throes of Cognitive Dissonance I will hold my nose and mark my ballot.

    I majored in sociology. It haunts me everyday. 

    When will my head explode?

    4. Thanks I ROFLed because of it. Berny Sanders was a cool guy, if only he wasn’t a puppet in hands of major politics. Maybe the best joke there was an election of Trump. However, every week we got so many jokes from his government and from his tweeter that any comedian couldn’t catch after it. You could visit reviews just for leaving your witty commentary there.
