Are you freaking kidding me?

The gal with the odd accent and interesting grasp of English , as well as a secessionist husband, is going to slam a guy who knows a guy who was pardoned for acts committed over 40 years ago?

Seriously, could our potential leaders PLEASE try to grow a little dignity and address matters of national and international importance with some sense that the American public deserves honesty and clear answers rather than bluster and word salad?

Lewis Black says a monkey should choose our president.

A friend of mine says all elections should be held with a phone book, a blindfold, and a stick pin.

Since we are revamping that whole free market capitalism idea, maybe we should take a look at our election system too.

i'd say let them arm wrestle over it, but if a bear ran for president, he'd totally win

i say elect a single mom of 8 kids who has had to live on a tight budget without sinking into crazy debt and who has had to broker peace deals among her brood without resorting to bloodshed.

That's an idea, Lime:) That first link is really funny! I used to think that midwestern accents were cute, but hers is driving me nuts--you betcha!

I just want it to be over, honestly. So much of what is happening is sickening, but we can't do anything about it.

Flowering Kudzu!!

Oh goodness I can't wait until this comical yet scary election is over. Basically I feel we are screwed either way it goes.

Hope you are doing well!

How is your friends daughter, Megan?

Considering her topic, I had to grin at that journalist spelling "pompon" wrong. ^_^

I've been thankful this election that one could basically put a monkey in there without doing too much damage. Hope I don't have to eat my words. We do have some laws in place now that could lead us down a 1984ish road. :-P

I still say it should start with a grammar test, and then -- ok, who am I kidding? No one would make it past the grammar test. So hypothetical situation: if someone WAS to make it past the grammar part, it would go on to a chess tournament, and then a sparring tournament; last person standing would be the victor. Who wouldn't love to see 2 politicians slugging it out? ^_^

PS Do you think the awful grammar of headline #1 was meant to be ironic? Or is it official that grammar is no longer a necessary journalistic skill? Personally, I'm going with #2, but I can be a pessimist like that. . .

I wish we could just vote today and be over it. We all know who we're going to vote for, right?

I think the gal needs to look no further than her own backyard to see questions of judgment!

Who needs Alaska anyways? Can you believe the state only turns 50 next year?
