Senators McBama Bring Relief

The event we’ve all been waiting for is just about here: The momentous date of November 5, 2008. Never have so many people waited so anxiously for a presidential event of this magnitude.

(Huh? I thought the election was November 4?)
(-It is. Tuesday the 4th.)
(Then what’s all this noise about Wednesday the 5th?)
(-There’s no more mud-slinging; that’s what.)

Whether it’s for president or some local political office, I’ve gotten sick of hearing, “I’m xxx, and I approve this message.” You REALLY approved that message? Honest to goodness, you approved a message calling your opponent a tax-dodger, someone in bed with a convicted felon, a person who did everything but molest little boys?

At least, you will shut up on the 5th. Or, as the polls close on the 4th. We can go back to the regular commercials, clever or stupid as they may be. At least they aren’t throwing mud on the competition.

The two presidential candidates speak, although guardedly, of how much esteem they hold the other and how they hope to work with each other after the election. I don’t think so; forgiveness for lies is one thing, but while you forgive the hot stove burner, you learn to keep your hand away from it.

Nov. 5th is the first day of the 2012 campaign. Let the new round of mud-slinging begin.
