This is your brain on politics:

Two things I’ve learned about politicians in my twenty years in Republican politics: first, they’re just like the rest of us, only more so. Second, people don’t become jerks when they start running for office, but it does reveal whether they’re really jerks to begin with.

The process of a competitive political race is like adding pressure to normal people. Like the pressure vessel in an espresso maker, it makes the flavors that are in there come out more strongly, for better or for worse.
