Well, we're now a month away from the election, with debates, polls, blunders, and gaffes running back and forth, and I'm running as behind as ever. The editorial cartoonists of the world have been busy taking shots as only they can.
The GOP candidate for Vice President, Paul Ryan, otherwise known as the Sneer Incarnate, has been busy driving fact checkers to drink...
Governor Mittens got himself in trouble on two fronts. His missteps involving the Libya situation were the first gaffe. The second happened when a video clip emerged with him essentially writing off nearly half the country as not worth dealing with. The 47% has taken off in a big way ever since. It seems that the grandson of Jimmy Carter had a hand in getting that clip out in the open. Rumor has it that the Mittens campaign is very unhappy with that. Meanwhile, Don James, the Capo di Capo of the Carter family, has given his grandson his thanks for the successful conclusion of Operation Get Even With The GOP.
And so the endless run to the elections continues. President Obama is, as of this writing, in the midst of debating with Governor Mittens. Both men are asking the question, "do you really want that guy to run this country. The country is asking, "how much longer will this keep going?"
Much will be made of this by the 24 hours news networks (side note: does the world really need news around the clock? Particularly when there's only a half hour of actual news on these things? The answer is not a bloody chance) in the weeks to come.
Just remember... if you think it's confusing for us to figure out...
Try looking at it from the dog's point of view.
