Idiocracy Review


Extraordinary
Political correctness is an annoying term, and an even more annoying concept. At first it was supposedly bad to be "politically incorrect," then it was supposed to be good, then Bill Maher used it as the name of his lame, pseudo-political celebrity talk show, and it became meaningless.
