In this edition of THE BIG RANT, Chris and Andre share their exhaustion over the midterm elections and the abundance of yard signs and political advertisements seemingly everywhere.
The guys kick things off discussing how ridiculous political ads have become and the need to smear an opponent rather than informing the voters about your positions. Also, did you know that political ads are legally allowed to be misleading?
Next, they long for the days of reasonable political debates amongst friends and colleagues and admit that it seems that ship has sailed and the United States was not on board when it did.
