Pre-Election Pandering

Watching debates last night was just about as exciting as watching this bug crawl at the Ernie Miller Nature Center this afternoon.

That’s because your candidates obviously think that you are just as intelligent as this bug. I hope you realize that both Obama and McCain are pulling numbers out of thin air and throwing them at you like they have any basis. They don’t. Just like the 700 billion number for the amount of the bailout which was completely made up. If both candidates had any respect for the voters that would have said “historically any employment and budget estimates were incorrect and given current unprecedented conditions we will not attempt to mislead you with false unproven statistics”. Instead they do this:

I propose to give a free shovel to every American to clean up the bullshit. I am not sure how you remedy insulted intelligence.

In the meantime, look at some nature photos and relax.

    First time in my adult life I’ve ever been polled by phone by a national polling org. tonight. ABC poll. Wanted to talk to the youngest man in the house of voting age. I say there are none. Then they wanted to talk to any man in the house. I say there are none. Then they say they want to talk to youngest person in the house and I say I’m it and I’m not young. They say that’s ok and proceed with the 20 questions which I answer.

    And I can’t help but wonder how this old broad’s answers will be counted in their poll of young men…lol

  • Panasonic DMC-LZ7, bought for $80 at Office Depot on clearance. Very happy, esp. for the price.
