I agree. Anyone who espouses political positions in emotional and opinionated terms risks being laughed at by others. Moreover, they and those who agree with them should learn to accept in good grace laughter from those who disagree. Think about it.
On another topic, I agree with those who liked Matthew Modine's character in the latest episode. He has a lot of possibilities. I am looking forward to next week's episode.
