Confessions of a Political Guy Who is Made Wildly Uneasy by Political Rallies

I'm sure that most people would think me political and religious. And yet ....

Watching the candidates tonight give their speeches (I saw Rubio, Trump, Cruz, Clinton and Sanders), I realize once again that political and religious people in large groups make me really uneasy. This matter of wildly cheering for a candidate just strikes me as so odd. To get people all fired up about their beliefs, to hoot and holler about abstract ideas and policies, strikes me as something as awkward as having sex in public. Actually, I think it might be more awkward.

These are just people with ideas, some more promising than others. It seems required, though, that their supporters have to hail them like they're the Messiah. That's just weird.
