“When you’re driving down a country road and you see a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that’s a post turtle. You know he didn’t get up there by himself. He doesn’t belong there; he can’t get anything done while he’s up there; and you just want to help the poor, dumb thing down.”

–          A Farmer Describing to Someone What a “Post Turtle” Is


Above is joke referenced by numerous US Presidents and political commentators that try to describe of all things, aspects of the American political system. And just like figuring out how that turtle got on top of that post, the American political system is equally as confounding.


That’s where we come in.


We’re The Post Turtle. It’s a website, about American politics. And other bullshit. You may know us from our numerous articles on current political issues or from our thoughtful reviews of books and films dealing with American politics or for our sick dance moves that helped save Miracles Community Center from being bulldozed by the heartless real estate developer Mr. Douglas.


Regardless of how you know us or what lead you here, we’re glad you came. So chill and stay a while.
