WE GET IT...NOW SHUT UP!!!

Since I've put out on my Facebook profile and other places that I am the chief writer/bottle washer of this blog, guess I better walk the talk and start putting stuff on here, huh.  Well, anyway as Jim Ross would say, "We're burnin' daylight"...

Lately I've been having to mute my TV lots more times than normal all because of all the political advertising/grade school-esque name calling.  You know what I'm referring to...

Candidate 1 (Jack):  "Joe's a doo doo head"
Candidate 2 (Joe):  "No, Jack's the doo doo head"
Jack (to Joe) "Yeah, well your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries"

And half the time, it's not the candidates themselves...it's some outside watchdog group (like in the case between US Senate candidates Rep. Lankford and T.W. Shannon) that's doing the name calling.  Even Dr. Tom Coburn (who they are running to replace) thinks this is getting out of hand.

I know it's easier said than done and difficult to execute, but can we at least have ONE campaign where the candidates state what their stance on issues are and state their voting record, and not attack the other candidate on what they have/have not done and revert to as I called it earlier grade school playground name calling?  PLEASE?!?!?!?!?!?!?  My sanity and my remote's mute button (and the batteries in my remote) will thank you!!!!

That's all I have for now...
