Monday Kickstart: Fail to the Chief

2013 was fun, wasn't it? No election filled with lies and the deliberate exaggeration and reimagining of the mundane into inflammatory water cooler topics. Well, enjoy it; 2014 will likely see 2016 campaigns begin to form. *shivers*

If mudslingers today rely on blatant untruths about a candidate's private life (like the idiot "Birthers" who to this day insist that President Obama wasn't born in the US) to produce movement in the polls, what will they do when that candidate has already put his or her entire life in the public eye?

Of course, there's always hope that instead of the petty nonsense that's become standard in the last 20 years of American politics, we'll all just ignore the election and focus our attention on something more positive. Something purer, something inspiring. Something, like...Misty Copeland, the first African American Woman to join American Ballet Theatre:

One of the most breathtaking women I've ever seen. Let's go.
