In my defense, one reason I could never run for office is the debate thing. OK, so the whole shady past is another, but I digress. I know if I was in a debate on nationally broadcast TV, there would come a point where I would look at my opponent and say "...are you really that fucking stupid?" sigh
However, as luck would have it, there are plenty of other candidates ready to be seen as buffoons. Case in point...there was a little debate last night. I swear they do these things just so all of us have something to write about.
"Government doesn't create jobs" ...Elect me into office and I'll create jobs. WTF?
"It's not as big as yours" ...I think they were talking about pensions, but maybe not.
On oil drilling: "What was the cost, 20 or 25 birds were killed" ...Was Big Bird one of them?
"Now all of a sudden, you're a big champion of coal" ...How nice, we all need to excel in something.
While tweeting last night about this prime time entertainment, a connection between a couple of things came to mind. In the spirit of good citizenship and with tongue planted firmly in cheek, I give you the musical taste of the day.
