Sigh. Is it just me or has it been a long political season? It seems as if the campaigns have gone on for years and we still have weeks to go before the election.
Maybe it's because the race is so close. Both sides are leaving no stone unturned in their effort to sway every voter possible. Or maybe it's the world of instantaneous news we live in now, where every news outlet, Internet blogger or political junkie is hoping to tweet the latest twist in the election. Or it could be because Florida is one of those toss-up states so we're getting hit harder than some other places. Let's hope the people in South Florida have figured out how to vote in the last eight years. Hanging chads anyone?
Whatever the reason I've grown weary of all the calls, mailings and commercials. Don't get me wrong...I think people need to be informed and well-acquainted with the issues before they go vote but I doubt these ads I'm seeing on the TV are the best way to do that. I told Wayne just yesterday that I was ready to see something else on the screen.
And I did...the first Christmas commercial of the season. Really? It's still ten days to Halloween. I guess I need to be careful what I wish for.
