teethclenchingly painful writing

I have the "follow your politicians" feature turned on on Facebook. The main thing I've learned from reading "my" politician's social media writings is that it always has the same style of smarmy barflgab of marketing spam copy of 10 years ago (current-year marketing bullshit copy tends to be much clearer and punchy, and is less mindbreakingly stupid) that I long ago trained my internal mental adblocker to skip over and blur out. To the point that it's actually painful to force myself to read them. This style of teethclenchingly painful writing seems to be independent of party, independent of wing, and independent of level of government.
