Pre-ElectionSyndrome, gotta love it



It's that time of year again, with November 2 coming around much, much, much too soon for the political juggernauts to handle with anything even resembling grace, but would someone please explain to me why the the ad campaigns of various candidates have to slurp fetid pond scum riddled with rotting frog spawn?

It's not just that I am annoyed by the upcoming presidential election -- and I am, for all that I fully intend to participate in my civic duty to try and keep the person I see as being totally fucking incapable out of the oval office -- it's that everyone's commercials make me wish fondly for those slick ads where teenage girls ask their matronly mums whether they ever feel 'not so fresh.'

Why must the political juggernauts attack one another with ice picks and machetes when they could actually discuss real issues? When they do pick issues, why can't they try and explain their views and intentions rather than shouting that their opponent is obviously teh_eeeeebil (tm) loosely based upon party affiliation with glaringly obvious hooks meant to hoodwink the less-than-bright into thinking that gee, maybe party X/Y/Z isn't so bad.

And please, won't someone think of teh chillen? Or Osama Bin Ladin? Or the pipeline explosion? Or teh chillen exploding Osama's pipeline... or something?

Why is it that the political commercials must blare out with "Vote yes on this" or "No on that" without explaining how Prop. 1 or Initiative 45892 is going to change the world?

On a related note... Would someone please drop Mr. Eyman off of a cliff -- gently, of course, because he's breakable, and breaking people is generally considered a bad thing -- because he is a blind, stupid asshole who should fucking run for office if he really thinks he can fix how government is run.

Pardon me, my prejudices are showing... although that might have something to do with the fact that road construction and repair have been rather back-burnered because of Mr. Eyman and his bullshit. Although, come to think on it, I think he failed to collect enough signatures this time, but I expect I'll know for certain when my voter's packet arrives. Sometimes it really sucks to work during news-time when letting one's pet bird shit on the local newspaper is paying it far too great a compliment.

In any case, the commercials make overexposed, maggot-infested skunk scent-glands smell good and I'm getting sick of "I'm so and so and I did, in fact, approve this message because you can't even trust my party (or my supposed allies) to run ads that make Bush, Sr.'s smear campaign on Dukakis look rather like a pleasant reminiscence."

I hate to say it, but I'll be so glad when the election is over because I am damned *tired* of wearing hip-waders just to watch TV for the three or so hours a week that I actually spend doing so.

Current Mood: crankycrankycrankycranky! Damnit.
