Election Year Life Hack

Q: Jay, how can I tell if a candidate for the U-S House or Senate is a Republican?

A: Easy! They don’t mention they’re Republican to avoid any association with Donald Trump.

They may or may not speak disparagingly of Hillary Clinton and/or Barack Obama, so you can’t rely on that old chestnut anymore.

But the true litmus test is that they gloss over their party affiliation altogether.

Democrats self-identify as such; Republicans just don’t self-identify at all, unless they’re running for President.

That’s how you can spot them as Republicans.

You’re welcome.

BONUS ELECTION YEAR LIFE HACK:

If you hear the words “Benghazi,” “Obamacare,” “Wall Street,” “Vince Foster,” “Private Server” or “Whitewater,” you may safely assume the candidate in question is a Rebuplican.

Ironically, if you hear the words, “Abraham Lincoln,” assume nothing.

EVERYBODY is claiming HIM this year!
