If you look back at what I’ve written here during 2016, you’ll see the list is short. In fact, prior to the election, I hadn’t been sufficiently moved to publish a new post since Prince died last spring, and rarely was my Twitter account seeing any action.
And then that big, orange, insecure, comb-over-wearing buffoon somehow managed to bamboozle enough people in Middle America into believing that a vile, shallow, obnoxious, sexist, racist, bloviating pig of a reality-TV star would be a good choice to lead the free world.
But wait; I lured you in with the promise of not subjecting you to rants like the one I just went on, so let me get to the point:
Since politics is what, as of late, has inspired me to write, and since many of you come here because you prefer to read the more innocuous, slice-of-life type things I sometimes publish (and my apologies for doing very little of that these days), I have decided to leverage the highly valuable Daddy Scratches brand to launch a shiny, new, politically-oriented blog. Behold:
And in conjunction with the launch of ScratchPolitics.com, I also have chosen to have mercy upon those of you who follow my Daddy Scratches Twitter account (which lately has comprised my proclamations that the End of Times is nigh upon us) by unveiling a new and separate Scratch Politics Twitter account. So far, I’ve tweeted one thing, retweeted another, and the only one following me? Is me … which — YES! — means now is your chance to get in on the ground floor of what is sure to become one of the funniest and most powerful voices on Twitter! (And by “funniest and most powerful,” I, of course, mean “obnoxious and profane.”)
So if, by some unlikely chance, you enjoy it when I perseverate on the horrible state of affairs in
Washington, DC Trump Tower while also saying “fuck” a lot, by all means, head on over to Scratch Politics and say “Hey,” wouldja?
And if, on the far more likely chance, you prefer to avoid such nonsense, stay right here; I’ll eventually write something politics-free!
