Countdown to America Electing Yet Another Self-Centered, Self-Serving Egotist 2008

There are more than three weeks until the official start of the Year of our Lord 2008.

Already there are over 7,100,000 hits on google for election 2008. Contrast that with fewer than 3.9 million for Britney Spears, and even a walrus can see that FAR TOO MUCH has already been written about an election over 300 days away.

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy politics as much as the next guy who minored in Political Science (Poli-Sci, for those in the know). I’m just not a glutton for punishment. Not that the news media are going to let us off the hook. They’ll be all up in our collective grill, telling us either what we already know or what they want us to know, creating and destroying buzz words faster than Dan Rather can give a frog a handgun.

Flashback 2004

Djere is seated in JLM 319 – Editorial, Opinion, and News Analysis. The assignment was to inform the professor which Presidential candidate you support (thus splitting the class in half), and as editorial boards, write an endorsement for your candidate. After tallying the slips of paper a sigh, and a slight pause, Professor Karadjov speaks.
 

P.K.: “I’m going to need five volunteers. Contrary to national polling, Mr. Maxon here is the only student in the class supporting President Bush for relection.”

So clearly the *next* generation of Journalists is as liberal as you thought they’d be.

Thank God for democracy and all that, but if this election crap keeps up, it’s going to take more than Twiggy water skiing around a kiddie pool to keep from losing my mind.

Swiftboating, leapfrogging, gerrymandering… aww, crap for crap.

On the bright side, it was my (unbeknownst to me) Al Capone quote that got my endorsement voted best in the class.

“And remember: this election day, vote early, vote often, and vote for Bush.”

 

P.S. So far, only one reply… from the RON PAUL campaign!

    Beware the Free and Genial Society of Walruskeepers. They nearly made a move while Steve was in London and I only just managed to head them off.
