Every four years the nation sits fixed to their TVs, anxious to celebrate people who worked hard to truly master skills for their shining moment. People embrace winners, hunger for underdog successes, and celebrate the rest simply because of their inspirational spirits! After the Olympic Closing ceremony, the sheen of gold, silver and brass tarnishes quickly as feverish elections come calling. To me, all candidates are annoying guys marking their conquests – one dangling chad at a time.
HARRASSING TELEPHONE CALLS
In 3 days I received 3 phone calls from multiple numbers. If I don’t recognize numbers, or especially now that I do, I don’t answer. They leave a message! Candidates usually lack the time or gumption to call you themselves so they have their friends find out if you like them. I don’t even need to hear their voice, the silence on the line before they get rolling creeps me out. If you don’t stay on the line long enough, they call back!
SMOTHERING LOVE NOTES AND HATE MAIL
Every day between now and November it’s non-stop political junk mail that I toss aside to recycle. I’m considering forwarding my mail to a political office for yucks. I don’t care if they get our Boy Scout and Oprah magazines, they may learn things from Lifeclass or the Scouts.
SAY WHATEVER IT TAKES TO GET YOU IN BED
I love living during historical moments such as Obama backing gay marriages. I’m incredibly frustrated by his timing having announced it the night before his huge fundraiser in LA! It’s about time but what took so long? It feels so calculated to me and, in my opinion, cheapens the sentiment! If you disagree – it’s allowed. He’s not alone. All parties’ candidates on all levels say whatever they think you want to hear. They heartlessly dig and bash the competition in such dirty, deceitful fights that even if I once liked them, by the end I want to choose nobody.
I don’t think all men or candidates are slimy. I will sort through the crap to seek out honorable intentions before I choose a decent person with whom I want to spend the next 4 years of my life.
