I have sooo had enough of the pre-election media blitz, with all the accompanying jabs, sucker punches, taunts, sneers, insults, half-truths and no-truths from the candidates and their supporters. I feel like I've spent the last month listening to bickering children who believe I have the mental capacity of an earthworm.

I'm not taking any political positions here. I acknowledge that sane, rational people with good intentions frequently have differing opinions. But I have one request of the voters out there. No, I'm begging. Please please please, don't get any of your information about any given candidate from his opponent or someone who blatantly supports his opponent. The information you'll get from these people is likely inaccurate.

Also, to the candidates out there, we really don't need to hear about how you support any of the following. Everybody supports these things. You're just wasting air.

- Lower taxes
- Good schools
- Better pay for teachers
- Eliminating waste in government
- Clean air and water
- Keeping sexual predators away from our children
- Freedom

Thank you! Your list of seven painfully obvious things that they could just shut up about is perfect. Now if we could just get every candidate to agree to it. For-freaking-ever!

Candidate Smith doesn't care if you are protected from dangerous dihydrogen monoxide. Candidate Smith won't protect your children from dihydrogen monoxide. Reelect politician Jones and keep dihydrogen monoxide out of our communities. Politician Jones- tough on dihydrogen monoxide. Paid for by smear merchants that think you are a dipshit.

Yeah but, if they don't talk about how they support those things, they'll have absolutely nothing to say...
