National elections (and I’ll refrain from telling the joke about George Bush in Japan…) in nigh on 3 weeks and you can’t move without tripping over a bloody placard for this one, that one or someone else.
The two major parties have come to their senses and agreed that the place is getting extremely ugly-ised and suggested that everyone disarms to what is still overkill, but significantly fewer than the number we currently have.
Good for them!
Now HERE’s a true story: driving through Wolfboro, NH last October and cut down a residential road to get a different view of Lake Winnipesaukee.
EVERY SINGLE HOUSE had an election placard stuck in their front yard and – I kid you not – it was almost as if there was a demarcation line: on the side of the road that had lake frontage (big houses, flash cars), EVERY placard was for Romney. The other side of the road (modest homes, wooded, mostly Subarus): Obama.
What was it that Gordon Gekko said…?
