Let's have a show of hands to see if you are as BORED with the political campaigns as I am.
I am BORED with Obama versus Hillary and I am happy for the hiatus McCain has given us by going to the Middle East to appear "presidential", even if he doesn't seem to know the difference between al Qaeda, Shias, Sunnis, Iranians, or Little Green Men from Mars.
So naturally I want to know if (a) everybody else is, (b) some of you are, or (c) you're consciously trying to avoid paying any attention to the campaign to avoid becoming bored with it.
Option (c) takes in the fact that McCain has the GOP nomination and Politico.com says that there is no way numerically that Hillary can get the Democrat nomination. Unless...the superdelegates take it from Obama and give it to her. My theory is that they will.
People keep telling me that the Democrats aren't that stupid, but I keep telling them to look at their two candidates for the nomination. And, yes, they are that stupid.
Of course, this doesn't let the GOP off the hook. Out of a cast of candidates that were often baffling in their opacity, trying hard to ignore the debacles of the Bush Administration or blathering away insanely like Ron Paul.
Does it strike anyone as a strange coincidence that Mitt Romney bit the dust with his speech on being a Morman and Barack Obama has made everyone nervous with his supposedly brilliant speech about why he was not paying any attention in church for the past 20 years?
Race, religion, gender. Everybody tip-toeing around trying to ignore the obvious divisions in our society, being oh so politically correct, and in November it will be the votes of WHITE MALES that will decide who the next president will be.
Denver hasn't raised enough millions thus far for the Democrat Convention, though the GOP seems ontrack. The Democrat convention will be too much fun to ignore as they implode. The GOP will be a pathetic spectacle in which everyone tries to pretend McCain doesn't want open borders for illegal aliens, doesn't believe that global warming is the biggest threat to the planet, and, like Bush, has no idea where Osama bin Laden is these days.
So cast your vote. Bored? Or Not?
