Let's grow up kiddies

You know, I was a little disappointed today as I listened to Palin throw Obama in with the 60's radical bombers. Sarah, I thought you were above such mud flinging.

I really dislike the attack advertising tactics. Both sides are getting down and dirty, and I hate it. This is one of the ugliest campaigns I've ever witnessed (I know, I haven't witnessed all that many in my short life). Win because you're qualified. Don't try and win by grounding your oponent's reputation into the ground with a stilleto heal.

Amen! I hate politics.

I second all of that! How sad is it that debates really aren't debates? Frankly, I don't feel comfortable with anyone who acts like that in office for our country.

The problem is that the media calls these events "debates". That implies that the candidates are able to abide by typical debate rules. A skilled debater with avoid topics and turn the focus on their strengths. They should drop this notion of it being a debate and just have it be a question and answer session. That's assuming they'd tell the truth anyway!
