I'm sick of the American Presidential election. I'm sick of the mud-slinging and the sniggering behind hands and the second-guessing and the conspiracy theories and the media x-rays and the endless fucking pundits who actually haven't the first idea what they're talking about and don't care so long as they pander to the political bias of their audience.
Henceforth, if I refer to them at all, I will be referring to the candidates as `Binky' and `Bumpy,' and their running-mates as `Sid' and `Rosebud.' I don't care which combination of them gets elected, or indeed whether any of them gets elected. Fuck 'em all. I just want it to be over.

I'm beginning to feel this way too. *sigh* Enough already with all of this.

Maybe I shouldn't have piped up. After all, I can't vote in the election so it's really academic - Binky or Bumpy won't be running my country (or will they?) But I've found some of the dirt in this election quite disgraceful, particularly the tidal wave of opprobrium which has washed over Sid. The stuff I've seen about the provenance of her son surely goes beyond the bounds of decency. And this stuff is from liberals. My people. Utterly ghastly. And now the satirazzi over here are doing it, too.
