Politics Goes Emo

Wek gives "some" credit that is deservedly unenthusiastic to the genre of Emo. While there may be a need for some to hear why some skinny-jeaned hipster broke up with his girlfriend, Emo has no place in politics. The country faces serious problems that require well-detailed and complex solutions, and just appealing to people's base emotions (hope, change, love, fear) isn't doing a great service to democracy.
