Debate

By October 8, 2008#Life

I casually watched the debate tonight.  By casually I mean “I surfed the web with the TV on in the background”.  The moments I actually paid attention I was pretty bored.  I know this is supposed to be one of the great decisions of our time, but I find myself yawning.  There’s supposed to be a fascination with our political process, but instead I find it so over-the-top that it turns me off… campaign ads, constant news coverage, yard signs, bumper stickers… I wish we could have just held the election the moment the two candidates were finally selected months ago.  It’s like eating pizza every day for months – after a while you just get sick of it all no matter what type of crust or how its topped.

I'm a husband, father, leader, and geek whose time is wrapped up in faith, family, film, and travel. I guess I'm a little like the equivalent of a utility player in baseball. I'm happy with not being the best at something as long as I'm always trying to get better.

    Word. Even if it was the most delectable pizza, I’d hate it by now if I had to eat it five times in every commercial break, in the car on my way to work or school, or every time I watched the news.
    The only thing I can’t get enough of is that sketch from SNL regarding the credit crisis Wall Street bail out -and it was just a stupid song about who voted yes or no. (thumbs up!)
