"Mom, she hit me."
"Mom, he's being mean about me."
"Stop touching me!
"No, you stop touching me!"
"Ok, you two! Knock it off right now or we won't go one foot further. I'll turn this car around and we'll go home."
My interpretation of the recent debate and subsequent speeches given by Clinton and Obama. Seriously, doods. Cut the shit. I hate that crap. Grow up, suck it up and stop taking these petty, stupid swipes at each other. It's not making either of you look smart or like you're the candidate for change - which, by the way, I'm going to puke if I have to hear one. more. time. It's making you look petty and small and like every other politician out there. If there's one thing that doesn't epitomize change, it's these stupid, juvenile squabbles.
I'm starting to think about giving my vote to Edwards. I really can't stand to listen to much more of this crap. It's bugging the hell out of me that Bill Clinton is doing a lot of the sound bites. I can understand him campaigning for his wife - that's his right. But to continually smear Obama somehow diminishes him. He was the president. Maybe I'm being naive, but somehow, it seems a president should be above that type of campaigning. Bill Clinton is such a wonderful and persuasive speaker, I don't think he needs to sink to those levels.
I hope to hell this stops soon. I can't take another couple of months of this crap. I already listen to this from a couple of toddlers every day. I don't want to turn on the TV and see it there, too.
(In a total aside, did you see that Johnny Damon endorsed Rudy Giuliani? Way to jump on to another sinking ship, there, Johnny boy.)
