With Election Day coming, some people bemoan the fact that all candidates are too much alike. Whether one is a liberal Democrat with socialist leanings or Tea Party Republican with libertarian tendencies, chances who you vote for will be somewhat sane.

All hail the bipolar, manic depressives, autistic, voice hearing, multiple personalities that have always brought the human race forward. We need crazy, as the sane world we live in promises to normalize us to death.
