I’m hitting myself on the head with a hammer

I can’t wait for this election to be over, and here’s why: I’m obsessed with it.

Every day I watch the talking heads and get incensed all over again. I cannot believe the minutia that the press is poring over, trying to infer this or sidestep that.

And everybody’s guilty of it.

I am so sick of Bush bashing that I can’t even listen to it any more. From anyone.

Why, then, do I subject myself to the idiocy of the pundits and the know-nothing talking heads? I think it’s because I’m still searching for a shred of decency there. It seems to me that the candidates have a lot more integrity these days than most of the newscasters, commentators and the guests they have on their shows.

But I find no such decency in the media, and that’s what’s making me crazy. I remember that the Bush/Kerry election got kind of mean-spirited, but I don’t remember it being like this. We all have to live together after next Tuesday. Can we all just put this behind us and carry on? I’m not so sure, and that breaks my heart.

America survived eight years of W. We can survive four years of the next guy, too. Whether it’s your pick or mine, we’ll get through it.

Can’t we please do it with a little decorum?
