First an admission. I watch too much cable news. Much too much.
The cable news channels are thrilled candidates have declared for November 2016’s presidential election. They have something to talk about, guaranteed!
There’s all sorts of talk about polls and strategy. Who cares? It’s too soon.
Right now all I’m hearing are Republicans talking about Hillary Clinton’s weaknesses and Dems saying the same about the Republicans. It’s just noise.
Does anyone really know where any candidate stands yet? Do the candidates even know? It’s a complex job. No one can ad lib their way in.
By the time all is said and done billions will have been spent. Billions. My mind has been boggled.
Maybe Great Britain has a better way of doing things. Their election season lasts 30 days.
Sure there’s a little cheating before the official start, but 30 days sounds much more civilized than our 18 months of throwing mud against the wall to see what sticks.
