Some say I'm interesting.
This is a Haiku.
Man, it sure looks like you guys would have been supporting Bush through most of his second term by the same reasoning:
Spammed with emails from the Obama campaign demanding that I donate so they can “close the gap” between the amount that each candidate currently has to spend. What they don’t tell you in the emails is that Obama has received more donations than Romney by a significant margin, has spent much more than him, and has effectively made it so that he has about 40 million less to spend during the last month than his opponent.
Obama has raised 835 million. Romney has raised 771 million. Obama currently has 157 million to spend while Romney has 200 million. Sorry, Obama, that’s on you.
Why are Republicans not jumping on this blatant irresponsibility? Come on, Republicans, get on that. This is right up your ally.
Republicans: PBS takes up such a small percentage of spending that turning it into an issue seems ridiculous. We’re spending too much and attacking such minuscule programs while maintaining that we cannot reduce spending to our bloated military budget is ridiculous.
Democrats: You’re over-reacting to the suggestion of cutting PBS. PBS may be a small amount of total spending, but it’s still spending that’s not particularly useful and thus should at least be considered as a target for spending cuts.
The main reason that following this pre-election nonsense is so frustrating is because both sides’ attacks are filled with so much plainly stupid ignorance that I end up wanting to defend both sides against the other’s bullshit.
