Are We There Yet?

Do we have a new President yet?

Doesn’t it seem like we should be done with the whole election cycle by this point? I mean, I’ve run out of things to write about and these jokers are STILL going at it for a nomination.

I’ve told you guys that I’m not really all that political. The whole thing is more like vaudeville to me, with some goofy characters occasionally coming up with a funny one-liner. Like the time in a debate when Cruz was telling Trump to “Breathe. Breathe. Breathe.” and Rubio quipped, “While they’re finishing their yoga, can I answer the question?” That was funny!

The one-liners have run out, however, and his thing has gone on too long, and I didn’t mean to demean vaudeville. Vaudeville was entertaining. This election cycle is more like Emeril Lagasse’s sitcom on NBC. The show had amusing moments, but the characters tried too hard, or not hard enough – who can really tell, and I wanted to like it, but I just lost interest.

This election is like Emeril’s sitcom. I want to like it, but I can’t.

Once upon a time in my voting life, Alabama held its primaries in June. JUNE! Six weeks away from where we stand today! Good grief, groundhog! (I don’t know, it just came to mind.) No wonder turnout was so abysmal.

There has to be a better way to get, and hold, voter attention. Maybe voter attention isn’t really what the candidates want, and that’s why we have the system we have. Hmmmm.

Anyhoo, I owe you guys an honest to goodness blog post. I’m long overdue. I’ve said this a hundred times, but getting up a 4:30 in the morning to do anything is a pretty easy habit to break. I will work on a summary of our spring break trip and have it posted next week, lest any of you are planning a trip to Savannah during the summer. As with any trip, the journey is at least as much fun as the destination.

Enjoy your journey today!
