I hate the Presidential debates.

And not just because my entire family is rooting for McCain, and Danny makes snide comments while Obama's speaking, and Dad flips out about how the filming of the debate is biased because almost every shot of McCain showed the timing indicator lights. (Which, for the record, was true only for one question, during which McCain was standing directly in front of the light. SHEESH, DAD.) That's stressful enough.

What I hate, though, is the fact that NOBODY ANSWERS THE FRIGGIN QUESTIONS. I want to know their answers to these carefully-thought-out questions, and half their answer is spent on the party line and half is spent on discrediting the opponant, and while that's all fine and good, I WANT TO KNOW THEIR POSITIONS ON THE SITUATIONS OUTLINED IN THE QUESTIONS. And while I know that isn't really the point of the debates, not really, I WANT TO KNOW.

ARGH.

Hank Green said in a recent vblog post (here, for those of you that haven't seen it) that half of the five candidates scare him.

My problem is that four of the five candidates for president scare me. And the candidate I like the most wouldn't necessarily be a good president. And where does that leave me?

On a side note: Wikipedia, an impartial source for all your election needs: "Barrack Obama is expected to Pown Sen. Hillary Clinton in 2008's Presidential Election."

I JUST GOT A CALL FROM CHUCK NORRIS.





Yes, it was pre-recorded. Yes, it was a campaign ad for Huckabee. BUT CHUCK NORRIS CALLED. Asking me to vote Huckabee or suffer a ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE TEMPLE. (Not in so many words. But it was implied.)



If you need me, I'll be fortifying our house, just in case Chuck comes to canvass for votes with his fists...
