I'm going to do it. I'm going to go ahead and say what I've been feeling for the past several weeks. It's tough, perhaps embarrassing, and more than a little surprising (to me at least), but I'm coming out. I'm T.O.P. I'm Tired Of Politics. I'm tired of the left and I'm tired of the right. I'm tired of the lack of reason, the lack of ethics, and the hypercharged level of emotion. Both sides are guilty. I'd like to think that most people are impervious to the masquerading, but I doubt that's the case. To be honest, while I thought Bush's speech at the RNC was good, I'm surprised by his jump in the polls. At the same time, I shake my head and almost feel sad for Kerry and his utter lack of direction and conciseness. The guy really does flip-flop. And Cheney saying that a vote for Kerry basically is a vote for another attack is unconscionable. The whole CBS presenting fake documents story is similarly shameful. It's to the point where you can't trust any media outlet. They're all biased and seem to skew the truth to their side. I know who I'm going to vote for and plan on not getting too involved unless something new and noteworthy comes up.

I agree. I think we need to talk about something far more important.
Long-necked sea monsters.
Now that's news!
Dan, that is a shameful plug.I agree with you Cam.
Rep party says- the world will end if you vote for Kerry. He jumps sides so quickly it will force the earth to jiggle. At that point, it will plumet into space and crash into Uranus.Dem party says- the world will end if you vote for Bush. He want's to take over the world. The US takeover will force the world population to eat so many McDonalds hamburgers, we all get fat and decide to takeover the universe (to make the aliens just as happy as us).So clearly, you can't go right and you can't go wrong with your vote.
Sweet cucumber pickles, let's not talk about anything crashing into Uranus.I agree, it was a shameful plug, but at least it was related to Cameron's post, and I'll have you know that it was posted while Cameron was watching.
Ditto. More? OK. Frankly, I'd rather talk about light bulbs than politics. Big, fugly light bulbs. So there. Sweet cucumber pickles? I'm sure there is some deep, psychological, moving symbolism in that phrase, Dan, but I am completely unable to determine what it is. And I'm pretty unwilling to do so, seeing as how you also mentioned something crashing into Uranus in the same sentance. The horror!!!!!!
