The Election Isn't Tomorrow

Thursday, March 01, 2007
Stop paying so much attention to these silly polls! They don't mean anything! Most people don't even know that Obama is black or that Romney is a Mormon!

Oh, and by the way, Giuliani is a draft dodger, too? So let's see. The Republicans are supposed to nominate a cross-dressing, anti-gun, draft-dodging, thrice-married, philandering, New Yorker? Is this some sort of ha-ha?

John McCain has hired all the nastiest campaign strategists in the country. What do you imagine they are going to do with a candidate ahead of them in the polls with this kind of baggage?

  • Sorry to disagree with you again, but the election practically is tomorrow. There are going to be roughly three weeks between the Iowa Caucus and the major primaries, and so the nominee will be elected in roughly one month. If not, then the two candidates with the most delegates will form the ticket. Either way, paying close attention to the 2008 campaign is the only way that most citizens can tolerate Bush's actions. As a result, Clinton, Obama, Edwardsm McCain, Giuliani and Romney are proxy presidents. Any of them would be better than Bush, most Americans assume, so it's better to help plan the frontrunners' campaigns. Even for the few citizens who still think Bush is the next best thing to the Second Coming of Christ, the stakes of 2008 are so high that they are paying attention now.

    Face it, this is what happens when foreign policy crises (Iraq), domestic crises (Katrina), and constitutional crises (everything else) are unresolved. The next campaign helps us feel empowered when we really have no control over any of these crises.
