What Is Sillier Than Silly … Part 2

In honor of the Iowa Caucuses today I have gone back into my Archives to bring you a Presidential Campaign Silliness from the 2008 Election. Do you think we have progressed past Silly since then. I sure don’t.

We are still mired in nonsense. When your TV is going crazy tonight about Everything Iowa think back to this Blog Posting. Tonight will be Crazy Nuts. It will be all about picking out the Fly Chit from the Pepper. Thank heaven we have the Talking Heads to help us tell the difference.

Some of us own Smart TVs. If you are one of them, I say you ought to get your money back. If your TV were really Smart, it would turn itself off.


This came from the Associated Press July 8, 2008...

Headline … Pet owners prefer McCain over Obama…
“An AP-Yahoo! News poll found that pet owners favor McCain over Obama 42 percent to 37 percent, with dog owners particularly in McCain's corner.”

Ah come on America! Coverage of our Presidential Elections is many times silly but we have now gone beyond silliness.

Allow me to predict the kind of nonsense we will be subjected to in future elections…

  • People with spaces between their teeth are overwhelmingly in What's His Name's corner.
  • Is it true that What’s His Name once ate an escargot without removing it from its shell?
  • Due to that fact that What's His Name uses Heavy Cream in his coffee is there a danger that, once elected, he will attempt to outlaw Half & Half?

The real bad news is it’s not over when it's over. We in this country are now being subjected to the Unending Presidential Campaign Cycle. You can bet that any day now we will be reading speculation about whom Chelsea Clinton will choose as her running mate and whether that running mate prefers dogs or cats.

Would I kid u?
