A long time ago I was playing with an idea for a script where the absolute worst candidates from the absolute furthest-out wings of both the left and right were campaigning for some position, and they would both be just total caricatures of the political fringes.
The right (not just Trump) has blown every idea I had for my batshit insane hyper-right-ist out of the water.
I'm gonna volunteer for something in 2018.
It's been a while that if you took real stories about the GOP and re-wrote them as fictional events by fictional characters everyone would think they're too cartoonishly evil and stupid to suspend disbelief.
I wanted to be a writer and I used to outline story ideas with characters that I thought were "crazy but believable" but as I went through life I realized that there is no way I can even imagine some of the real characters I meet.
Even just trying to write dialog from my dad's point of view gave me a headache. And my mom, Jesus, forget it. I could write a book about her behaviour and TONE IT DOWN and people would say it was just totally unrealistic garbage.
People are fucked up.
I didn't really understand how much until I was away from them for a while.

I hate to say it, Meerkat, but your post is intriguing and I would sort of want to hear details about your parents.
I got some fucking stories to tell. Real life is definitely stranger than fiction.
The little people being evil or stupid is believable.
Something about 'controlling the fates of millions of people'-type positions makes us have higher expectations.

That's how they get us.

President Trump is looking a lot less like shit.
Looks like Roy Moore might not win and the tax cuts are imperiled, and the sex scandals of prominent Hollywood liberals are drying up momentarily...
SAY SOMETHING RACIST! That distracts Democrats from seizing cohesive narrative! Works every time!
Holy shit, I finally watched this.
I didn't think Trump could still surprise me but I was wrong.
I mean, I haven't heard him speak to his base so clearly, directly and concisely in months.
He's just the orange, bloated gift that keeps on giving. We should await the future with bated breath!
You know... Trump is kinda' handsome.
I miss this man immensely.
Even if I was capable of being offended I'd be too busy laughing at the sheer absurdity of it all.
