Current and future politicians, take notes… this is most brilliant political performance ever.

Here’s some background: Basil Marceaux was a mentally unstable long shot candidate. This guy definitely wasn’t the smartest man in the world, perhaps he had some out there ideas, maybe he repeatedly connected routine traffic stops to slavery, which had been grossly ignored by the media for some reason, but none of that matters. This guy didn’t have any political connections, an actual job, or any campaign organization to speak of. Yet, he managed get his rhetoric out there. He still ran for office. His faith in the democratic process and the marketplace of ideas gave everyone hope. (And hilarious YouTube videos.)

If that doesn’t scream America, a country that promises to give every single person their fair shot, I don’t know what else does.

(Thankfully democracy once again triumphed and he lost the election.)
