Tom Murt Is A Douchebag

First off I'd like to apologize if this post is rushed and crappy in general, I had to completely rewrite it after Blogger erased it. Lovely.

I don't know who Tom Murt is, what office he's running for, or even what political party he represents. I have purposefully delayed Googling this guy until after I write this rant to keep it politically impartial. The scene proceeded thusly:
I went to vote last night, and pulled into a parking lot surrounded by political fliers and signs. I approach the building's main door, cross the threshold, and come face to face with some old fart trying to hand me a political flier for Tom Murt. After politely declining and effectively hiding my initial reaction of shock, I proceed to the voting room which was less than 20 feet away. I voice my concern of their proximity and get a kindly "we're looking into it."
After voting I head back toward the group of decrepit seniors and overhear one of the voting officials arguing with them about how close they are. One guy claims that they are outside the required ten foot proximity. Here's about where I call bullshit. If some lady in Kansas can get a ticket for sporting a political bumper sticker within 250 feet of a polling location, then these assholes should at least be politely told to back the fuck up.
So, in conclusion, what these tools were doing was unethical, tacky, low-class, and most importantly, fucking annoying. All of these qualities can be associated with douchebags. I'll use my tough-shit theory of reletivity and calculate that Tom Murt is now a douchebag.

The End.
