11 Reddit posts that make you wish NJ millennials couldn’t vote (Opinion)
It’s not that I don’t enjoy Reddit. It’s not that I don’t enjoy millennials. It’s just that so many of them consider themselves political pundits with their only life experience being 4 years of college, and their only financial experience being student loans.

But some facts—along with the emotional hemophilia—would help. Here are just some of the astute political comments the anti-Ciattarelli Reddit braintrust posted.
And by the way, I’m not sure they’re all young. I’m just praying they are.
All redacted obscenities were spelled out in the original postings. ‘Cause nothing says political savvy like a good expletive.
