I Was So Happy The Election Commercials Were Over...Now This!
Let me start by saying I realize and appreciate how fortunate we are as Americans to have the right and opportunity to have our voices heard in the voting process. That being said, I was so sick of election commercials that by the end of this election cycle I thought I was going to scream if I were subjected to them one more day.
First, we would have the republican stating all the bad things the democrat did/was going to do if elected. That commercial would end, then immediately we would hear from the democrat saying the same negative things about the republican candidate - and that was only the Presidential candidates! Once we had the presidential commercials covered, then the ads would move to the "local" races and the same thing would occur again. It was like a crappier version of Groundhog Day (you know, that classic movie with Bill Murray). I would change the station three times and each time I would encounter election ads. I was so looking forward to November 3rd so the insanity would stop and my forms of media would return to "normal". November 3rd has now passed and you know what they say...be careful what you wish for.
My television, radio and internet are finally free of election commercials, but now we entered into a different ring of hell; we don't know who won our biggest race - President. I thought the election ads were insane, but I have a feeling the insanity is just beginning. Here come the court cases, recounts and more hate being spewed. Is there an over/under on when we are expecting to have a winner announced? I swear, I am so done with 2020. Can we just start 2021 right now? I would be willing to give up Thanksgiving, Christmas and even extend the winter months - just let this shitty year end already. I really don't know how much more I can take. Serenity Now, Serenity Now (it's not working!)
Okay, rant over - see you tomorrow with actual Observations From The Nuthouse!
