Negativitude...

Mercy, the presidential campaign has gone negative…big time!

Despite the excitement of the press, the current mud slinging is only the beginning of the flood we’re about to see.

Over the weekend the polls shifted and a bitch’s home state of Missouri went from leaning Republican to being a Big Ass Battleground state.

Missourians were already knee deep in the slug fest to replace Governor Blunt…which includes dueling television ads that are made up of 60 seconds of “HE LIES, HE LIES, HE LIES…(insert opponent’s name) is the very definition of BULLSHIT!!”

I’m serious, the republican candidate for Governor has a cartoon bull in his ad…for real...and it gets branded at the end (wince).

But now they’ve layered on presidential ads because Obama and McCain are dead even here. In St. Louis McCain is running ads questioning Obama’s readiness, character and honesty. Obama is running ads about healthcare and the economy...lots and lots of ads...tons of ads...an ad for every voter, for the love of media exposure.

Since St. Louis is in the midst of some serious economic drama…and the real battle for Missouri is really in the suburban counties of St. Louis and Kansas City, where people are being forced to redefine the American Dream due to Fubar Economics…this bitch is tempted to question the tactic (or is it the strategy?) of not talking about the issues but my ass honestly hopes that flawed shit continues.

Either way, The Great Media Battle for Missouri is making it damn near impossible to watch television without the aggressive use of TiVo (bless you, oh fantastical invention of the century)!

Buckle up, chil'ren...and put on a helmet too!

Blink.

Toodles ‘til after the debate…

If you think the ads are bad, wait till you see Palin's rallies.

Worse, Palin's routine attacks on the media have begun to spill into ugliness. In Clearwater, arriving reporters were greeted with shouts and taunts by the crowd of about 3,000. Palin then went on to blame Katie Couric's questions for her "less-than-successful interview with kinda mainstream media." At that, Palin supporters turned on reporters in the press area, waving thunder sticks and shouting abuse. Others hurled obscenities at a camera crew. One Palin supporter shouted a racial epithet at an African American sound man for a network and told him, "Sit down, boy."

McCain's tactics are increasingly dangerous. Over the weekend people in the crowd shouted out either 'Terrorist' or even 'Kill Him' and neither McSame or Illin' did anything to stamp out the hatred. SAD SAD SAD. I'm scared about where this is going.

McCain is trying to defame Obama to change the subject from the economy...Not gonna work! Dow down by another 500 points today!

Main street is terrified, and Main Street, along with all the other streets knows that our only HOPE is Barack Obama!

Since Arizona is pretty much a given for McCain, I'm seeing very few political commercials (also I am not watching much telly nowadays).

What are your thoughts on the local politics with regards to replacing Blunt? (I think you are more informed than I am and am curious.)
