As a kid I remember watching Curly, Larry and Moe -- the Three Stooges -- on TV. They were just silly and made a living at being silly.
Last night I watched the Four Stooges: Newt and Mitt, Ron and Rick. And frankly, they're not funny.
Annoying is the word that comes to mind.
Brian Williams tried to moderate something NBC News was calling a Presidential Debate. It was anything but Presidential. Mitt's relentless badgering of Newt and his record nauseated me. I'm all about Newt, but come on.
Bottom line: I DO NOT WANT ONE CANDIDATE TELLING ME HOW MUCH THE NEXT CANDIDATE SUCKS!
I have a brain and I use it. Each candidate needs to tell me their position on the topics. Then I can effectively form my own opinion and cast my vote.
Sadly, they spend far too much time beating on each other.
If I were in charge, no campaigning would be allowed before June 1. There would be a national primary in mid-August and the top four "vote-getters," from whatever party, would then be on a national general election ballot. The candidate who receives the majority of the POPULAR vote would be our president.
Just my two cent.
