Bring on the Nasty

I bet you thought I would be all Halloween with this post. But no. I am going political. I like to mix it up. I am 29 anyway. Time to put the tricks and the treats away.

So here's what I read the other day and it is still saddening me:
WASHINGTON - So far this campaign, the political parties have exposed voters to nearly $160 million in ads attacking congressional candidates. How much spent painting a positive image? About $17 million.

That's just over $1 of nice for every $10 of nasty.

The message ingrained in such a disparity in numbers: Don't vote for a candidate; vote against the opponent.

It's only fun when the pot and I are being nasty. Here, not so much. Make it stop.

I guess that kind of politics works better.
Have A Blessed Weekend
