Pop culture commentator John Lydon — the notoriously hot-tempered Johnny Rotten in another lifetime — once sang: “Anger is an energy.” If so, it’s certainly been powering the 2016 presidential campaign. ICYMI: Voters are angry. The remaining presidential candidates want you to know that they feel that anger. Okay, so John Kasich is hopeful and Jeb Bush is miffed — but others tapped into the vitriolic theme from the get-go, especially now-former candidate Chris Christie. If you can calm down for just a minute, let’s lighten the mood between contests by connecting the angry quotes with the mad politicians. Don’t get upset if your score isn’t perfect.
