The pro-Hillary Clinton super PAC Priorities USA officially responded to Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Donald Trump by releasing a graphic of a smiley face pointing and laughing.

Liberals and Democrats in the post-Jon Stewart Age frequently fail to argue substantive points, but rather use the strategy of empty ad hominem attacks to insult conservatives without actually saying anything meaningful.
This tactic allows younger, groupthink-minded progressives to feel like they’re part of a fashionable crowd, in opposition to conservatives, while also appealing to the most base and vicious elements of human nature.
