A Little Humor Amid the Campaign Madness

December 17, 2007

For those of you who are growing weary of political campaigns and advertising, I offer this little gem sent to me recently by a good friend.

Less than three weeks until Iowa; just over three weeks until New Hampshire.  And yet the general election is still ten and half months away.  It seems like this campaign has already been going on for a year, which is probably because it has been.  What a ridiculous way to select a leader.  The recent elections in Australia that led to the election of Kevin Rudd took place after only a month or six weeks of active campaigning.  Can you imagine?  Wouldn’t it be amazing to live in a country where political leaders actually spent most of their time governing rather than campaigning?  I realize that comparing the U.S. political system to a parliamentary system like Australia’s is problematic, but still…. 

I’m a political junkie — always have been.  But this is too much.
