I need to get this out there.

I am SO OVER this election.

But Laura! You are a polisci student! You are in college and should be in the prime of your activist years! Where is your passion??

This is what killed it for me:

  1. More than anything, I hate the negativity. Could somebody (for once) do a commercial where they just talk about what they're going to do for the good of America, and NOT what the other guy can't/won't/doesn't do?? Please? That would be great. I don't want to vote for ANYBODY now because you're all so freaking horrible to each other. I look for other qualities in a president than Expert Insult Thrower.
  2. We have been campaigning for what, a year? More than that? I don't know, but it's been way too freaking long. Seriously. Enough already.
  3. Sarah Palin. WTF. McCain might make a great president- what do I know- but he had better not effing die.
  4. The total lack of vocabulary in either campaign. I want to rip my hair out whenever I hear the m-word.
I cannot wait to vote early when I'm home next week, get it over with, and stop up my ears until this time next month.

    Well my friend, we can meet at the fence and agree on that point, anyway. ;)

    As usual, few people realize that the real work is in the House and Senate. Which by the way, both candidates seem to be neglecting while they dash off across country for photo ops and mudslinging.

    Whatever the outcome, this is going to be a one-hit wonder. Think about it--one is a COMMUNIST (I can recognize those!), and the other is a MAVERICK (not quite sure how that translates in political jargon--a cowboy? a cigarette ad? a bad 1960's movie character?). The real question is whether or not the election will impact sales of sexy footwear and lipstick.

    Now, excuse me darlin'. I've got an appointment for my new eyewear. Gotta watch out for those Russians, ya know!
