Do you ever just sigh when you think about the staggering amount of information we’re presented with on a daily basis, especially in the realm of politics? Who is having a scandal this week? Why does this issue even matter? You hear the word Blue-Dog Democrat and wonder, what does that mean? This is where Political Sigh comes in.

You may be asking yourself right now, “What does this guy know about politics or the political system?” The initial answer is that I received a bachelor’s degree in political science with minors in history and environmental studies.
