Last week, I posted about Tuxedo Stan, the Canadian cat that was running for mayor of Halifax. Unfortunately, the world isn’t all rainbows and mayoral kittens, and he cannot legally run. Commenters suggested that cats would make better politicians than the bloody elected officials we have now. I, too, think it’s ridiculous that simply telling the truth is an admirable quality in politics. Instead of posting “10 Reasons Why Cats Are Better Than Humans”, Someecards.com will do the job just fine by typing out our frustrations about politics and the upcoming election.
It’s coming! Get ready to vote on November 6th, which, at 47 days away, is creeping up closer and more stealthily than I thought. Shouldn’t my TV be exploding with over-analyses of pointless updates on Paul Ryan’s breakfast choices and Obama’s game of fetch with Bo? Pundits, who are paid to yell 24/7, are saying that this is the most important election in history. (But don’t they say that about every election? Sensationalism sells!!!!) Are you ready for OBAMA-ROMNEY SMACKDOWN 2012?
All jokes aside, civility and respect seems harder and harder to pinpoint in recent campaigns. As serious and effective as elections are, we are over saturated with negative coverage and misinformed, pretentious updates popping up on our Facebook feeds. While there are some things I could rant about for hours, that would take the fun out of these e-cards, because they simply serve to highlight the absurdity of modern politics. A strange air verbal combat has covered our country – let’s laugh at how asinine it’s gotten.
Are you anticipating Election Day? Who will you vote for?
