I approve this message

Dear Obama and McCain,

I realize Florida is a battleground state.  Things are always close and unpredictable here, election-wise.  We have young people, old people, rich people, poor people, military people, Jewish people, Christian people, Muslim people, black people, white people, hispanic people--just about any kind of people you could imagine live here.

So, I understand why you find it necessary to bombard us with ads on the TV, Radio, and in our newspapers.  I understand why your poll-takers incessantly call my house. are driving me absolutely crazy.  I'm to the point where I don't like either one of you very much.  If I saw you on a crowded street, I'd go the other way.  If I were waiting at the bus stop with you, I'd let you have the bench and stand off to the side, pretending to be interested in the traffic patterns.  

You see....I'd be afraid that I'd have to listen to one more speech from you twisting, spinning, and distorting half-truths at the expense of the other person.  It might make me lose my breakfast.  It might make me run screaming into the night to hear one more attack, rather then hear a single pronouncement about what it is either one of you is planning on actually doing if you are  elected.  And, I'm not talking about the crazy stuff you promise to people that you have no ability to truly accomplish...seeing as you will belong to the executive branch of government, and not the legislative branch.  Veto power is solely a reactive power, not an initiative power.

You have truly turned this election into a thing of dread. Rest assured, whoever I finally pick, it will be with great reluctance and reservation.  You have sucked the joy of voting right out of me.  You have ruined the words "maverick" and "change" for me.  I'll never be able to watch Top Gun, or carry extra coins left over from breaking a dollar, again.

Oh and can you please tell your supporters to stop pulling crazy stunts, and brain-washing young children to sing your praises in cult-like fashion?

It's really starting to get on my nerves.

OMG that was beautiful.

And yeah, the video is too creepy. Even for me.

I'd love to see you put this on the YSC, but ....... you're so good about not causing a fuss. :)

Ruth...If I put this at the YSC I could think of several people that might actually have an epileptic seizure! :-)

As far as making a fuss...I don't mind doing it every once in a while. I just have to feel that a situation is fuss-worthy.
