Truth in 2016

I've been screaming this for years re: idiots who dismiss politicians as "oh, they're all bad":
“Republicans have one path to victory in this election and it is called false equivalency. They can’t deny Trump is horrible. It’s on tape. So they want voters to believe Hillary is just as bad. And in pursuit of that goal they have a very powerful ally: lazy people. People who like to say, ‘They are all bad.’ Because when you say that you don’t have to do any homework. Say they are all the same, and you can sound justifiably jaded by the entire process when really you just don’t know anything. You say you are cynical about politics? Don’t flatter yourself. Cynical comes when you know too much. You, on the other hand, haven’t bothered to learn anything.
