Reader: The best part of the presidential election will be when it's over

The best part of the election will be when it's over. I know we like to pretend we have a voice and choosing a president is important, but it's really just to keep us distracted. No matter who "wins", the American people are still stuck with a giant douche or a turd sandwich. Our lives will not change but don't worry, when you realize the person you voted for is a schmuck, you can get all excited for voting for someone else to make your life better every 4 years.
