"One species never stops singing and displaying, all year long. They’re the “Hardenus Politicos,” known informally as the whack jobs, who can be found at the feeder of their favorite partisan media outlet every morning, bulking up for the day. They’ll spend most of their waking hours hurling squawking insults at each other on the internet, and making absolutely final and irrefutable predictions based on what they hope will happen. None of it will have the least effect on the election."
