At Least That’s Over

At Least That’s Over


Now that the election’s over, we will have to readjust to what we see on television. We’re going to be back to ads for Erectile Dysfunction and Peyronie’s Disease. Of course with the holidays coming we will see Santa driving his red Mercedes in which the commercial never explains how he gets around the world in that thing. I mean, good luck finding a gas station open on Christmas Eve after 6.

What we won’t be seeing any more is the constant barrage of negative ads trying to sway our vote.

“If elected, he will cut off Social Security and throw old ladies out into the street.”

“He once kicked a puppy.”

“She’s not even using her birth given name. Then to try to hide the fact, she changed her name on the day she was married…Is this someone you can trust?”

If any of the candidates actually came out and said what good they would do, I can’t remember. Who can believe somebody that once kicked a puppy anyway?

Then there’s the horrifying caravan. If you’ve been living in a cave, there are thousands of Guatemalans, including women and children, walking to the United States to seek asylum. They’re still a thousand miles away…did I mention they’re walking? Their expected arrival is sometime between July and New Year 2020.

Of course this didn’t stop them from using it as a scare tactic. Telling us everyone from Charlie Manson and Ted Bundy to John Wayne Gacy were in the caravan.

It was an ugly campaign and the only good thing is that it’s over.

Here in Pennsylvania we had a gubernatorial candidate threatening to stomp on his opponents face with golf spikes. Thankfully he didn’t go through with it. That would have really been ugly.

Is this where we are now, politically in this country? Where it’s not just good enough to stomp on somebody’s face, but you have to wear golf spikes when you do it? That’s just mean.

Anyway, it’s time to move on. Hopefully the “Old Lady Ignoring,” “Puppy Kicking,” “Name Changing,” “Golf Spike Stomping” candidate you voted for won.

You did vote didn’t you? If not you have no reason to complain. Hell, I voted four times yesterday.
