I know I said when I started this blog that I wouldn't talk about religion (just that one time) and politics.
So here goes that "one time" about the campaign.
Holy cow I'm glad it's over! Let me just say that I don't get into the whole frenzy thing. I don't canvas, I don't make phone calls and I don't put signs in my yard. I do vote, however. I like physically going to the polls. I have only voted absentee once (I can't remember why) but I missed actually walking into a building to vote.
I know I'm not alone in the "disgust" factor regarding the campaign. The money spent, the robo calls and the negative television ads. It got so bad Petey and I were thinking it might be better to have a queen instead of all the mud-slinging.
If the queen thing doesn't fly then I think there should be a hard and fast rule about phone calls and negative television ads. Naturally if there was a rule with swift consequences the sneaky bastards that run the campaigns would find a way to get around them.
A few weeks ago I was on a job waiting for the client to show up. I was minding my own business in the lobby reading a juicy murder mystery on my Nook. An older gentleman asked if I wouldn't mind the interruption, he wanted to inquire about my ereading experience. We chatted about Nook/Kindle versus the real thing and then, before I was aware of it, he switched to bashing our president. There wasn't even a segue! I don't get into those kinds of conversations because, honestly, I'm not well versed in the subject. Thankfully the client showed up and I could excuse myself.
So, I'm glad the circus is over. The clowns have removed their make-up and taken the tent down. Now we have 3 years to make some kind of progress (if Congress plays nicely). Yes, I said 3 years because we all know what happens during the last year of service by a president, don't we.
I can hardly wait. NOT!
