The Exquisite Struggle of Gene Eric Republican
Thanks to the internet, valuable products like confirmation bias and the Dunning-Kruger effect are more plentiful than ever.
I wanted a Generic Republican, to spout the generic arguments they cook up on every manufactured outrage. I wanted to reach peak derp.
And so I created my creature much as Dr. Frankenstein did, out of dead things (or at least thoroughly discredited).
Okay, not exactly like Dr. Frankenstein, I'm not comparing myself to a great author like Mary Shelly. Plus, her protagonist had some pretty weird motivations. I mean, the women in his life dying, and his obsession with that. Actually rather creepy, I guess that means the original has aged well, which is kind of sad. What were we talking about? Oh, right, my parody.
Meet Gene Eric Repubican.
