It may seem like all fun and games, but we take our Buffoonery very seriously around here. So much so, that over the years, we’ve developed a set of rules that our Nominating Committee abides by when discussing possible nominees.
- We are equal opportunity offenders. We don’t care if you think Ted Cruz is bae or if AOC is your spirit animal. This isn’t a Republican website. This isn’t a Democrat website. All people of every political strata are eligible for nomination because any person of any political strata can be a buffoon… even you! So leave your political leanings at the door. You’ll have a lot more fun that way.
- People who are widely considered Buffoons are off-limits. We’re on the hunt for new and innovative political buffoonery. There are just some names who, no matter what reason they are in the news, will just automatically elicit a knee-jerk reaction to call them a buffoon. You know their names: Trump. Hillary. Obama. Weiner. These four (and probably more as we go along) are considered Buffoon Emeritus and are hereby retired from competition.
- Keep it clean. There are several ways to interact with the site and our show. But remember, there is a big difference between witty sarcasm and being a douche. Don’t cross that line. Have fun debating who the biggest buffoon is, but keep the tone respectful to those participating in the fun with you.
Other than that, it’s pretty much a free-for-all within the Nominating Committee. If you want to be part of the fun, let us know in the comments!
