General discussion

election year

I always vote and consider it a privilege and honor, but I must say my enthusiasm is waning. Don't know if I can keep interested until the general election with all this negativity. And God knows there are plenty of issues I am interested in but I feel instead of answers I am hearing jive talk and it's very discouraging. Anybody else feel this way? I don't want to tune out but...

Tune out until school starts in September...............

.......and you won't have missed anything of import.

We've been entertained for three plus years with Bush-bashing
and thought the "menu" needed some change, so it will
include Kerry-bashing, not to exclude Bush-bashing, for
the next many weeks.

Just treat all of it like woodsmoke on the wind and
you will probably survive with no problem.

Hi Mary Kay

I know what you mean. The bashing by both sides gets a little tedious. We could try to inject some comic relief by playing "Guess the Democratic Running Mate". Happy I'll even start - How about Grey Davis? He's a Democrat and needs a job Devil

Do you think...

This recent Kennedy related drowning was a warning to Teddy not to consider it? Happy

Re:Hi Patrick

I think Robin Williams ought to be considered. I'm so confused now by the TV and News Articles, I think i'll do a write in.

You know Hillary is still floating around out there. Who knows, maybe? maybe? Shocked

Re: "Guess the running mate"

Hi, Patrick.

Ok, I'll bite -- what do you think about the McCain trial balloon? he's actually been voting with the Dems fairly often of late, and might attract a lot of moderate Republicans and independents...

I see age and health comparisons to Cheney there.

Maybe he could get Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, or Charles Rangle to run with him.

Hi, James.

And maybe Bush could replace Cheney with David Duke! I'd suggest Tom DeLay, but many here might actually see him as a viable candidate!

Voting is the Positive part that ends the negativity part for a few years. [nt]

If it were only so, James........

But as we've seen here at SE, the bashing-whoever
is a permanent fixture.

As for VP, I would nominate Clark, except I don't think
he, Clark, would keep quiet and out of sight enough to pacify Kerry's ego.

I know how you feel, Mary Kay. And it has nothing to do with what's said in SE.

What member say here has little to do with real life occurances and issues. Especially after they finish running a debate into the ground and the issues are tattered, stained, crumpled and unrecognizable. Wink

Now real life, that's something else. But ... come to think of it .... real life sounds a lot like SE. Sad

One of the few bad things about life in NJ

is that we take collateral damage from the politics of NYC and Philadelphia, not to mention NY State, and Pennsylvania contests. On a clear day you get spillover from Connecticut, too!

It might not be as bad a year as some. I don't think there are big races in NYC or NY State, and NY and NJ are pretty solidly in the Dem column for president. So we may avoid much of the impact this year.
