Political quotes: The right to be uninformed

uninformedHere’s a quotation that pretty much sums up the 2016 election. It’s the latest in our long-running series of quotes that remind us, over and over, that everything ends up being political, whether we like it or not.

We’re always on the lookout for quotes–contemporary and historical–that are pertinent to the current political environment.

Our illustrator is Christopher Burke, whose unique, quirky cartoons add a touch of whimsy–which we really, really need in today’s political realm
