Sometimes called a ?Mercy Rule?, but more commonly known as the ?Slaughter Rule?, is a practice used in the second half of Little League games to bring the game to an early end when one team has an insurmountable lead over the other team.
It is unfortunate that we don?t have a similar rule in place for political campaigns. In the instant situation, it could relieve the American public of the agony of another three months of a never ending political campaign that has gone on for a year and half..
At the moment, mid-July, it appears the next US Senate population will be 57 Dems and 43 Repubs. The US House will probably be 239 Dems and 196 Repubs, give a seat or two. ( http://www.electoral-vote.com/ )
As for the Presidential race, where public appearance is all important, John McCain is absolutely out-classed by the ?Stage Presence?; ?Eloquent Rhetorical Skills?, and a ?Take Charge Authority Figure? presented by Barack Obama. I see nothing changing here between now and November.
Someone, PLEASE, show mercy on the patience and tolerance of the American public, we have enough aggravation and stress in our daily lives already, PLEASE, show mercy and invoke a ?Slaughter Rule?.
