The Running of the Bullshit Festival

Is it just me or do others find the presidential election process embarrasing and demeaning?

I am not going to get too partisan here because I personally think politics is amoral and has lost it's way. Does anybody really believe that either of these two presidential candidates are being truthful or is it more important to do or say anything to get elected?

How can any truthful statesperson stand up and tell the American people that he has a health care plan that will "cost less" (than what?), cover everybody and fix the whole problem? If he has this plan shouldn't he have shared this long ago so we can get on with the other difficult issues facing the people of this country. BULLSHIT alert!! This kind of rhetoric is demeaning and confirms my thoughts; all I need is a good lobotomy and then I'll be able to buy into this crap.

Quit working for your "parties" guys and start working for the American people. Bi-partisan success should not only happen in response to horrible events like the devastating attacks of 9/11. How quickly did this wave of cooperation pass? Probably as quickly as political consultants indicated it was safe to go back to "lack of" business as usual.

One other thought..Michael Moore is no better than the scoundrels he purports to expose. He is practicing a new form of modern politics and making a fortune doing it. I resent him (and his political compadres) for not giving me credit for being able to think for myself. Half truths are half false...
