Cynical Proverbs 11:8

This is a special edition of Cynical Proverbs today, folks (so I'll make sure to cover it a polybagged holographic die-cut chromium cover and charge an additional $3.50 for process.) Not only is this "special" because it's  a election-themed segment,  but the formula here is going to be tweaked a little bit. Instead of tackling optimism cliches and self-righteous platitudes with my trademark sardonic wit, I'm going to offer a  a bit of electoral cynicism  (an "anti-platitude" if you will and one that can ironically enough just as self-righteous and cliched)

"Voting is pointless"*
The same could be said for getting out the virtual corkscrew to pop open a bottle of vintage Internet whine (this years vintage has been made from particular ripe sour grapes), and yet people seems more than willing to engage in that.


*Any other phrasing of this facile sentiment is also acceptable.
