ShockEd, OffendEd and DisappointEd

June 9, 2016

Is this the best we can do, America?

Following many months of ugly – and I mean UGLY (with a capital UGH!)- campaigning, it would appear we have our options…Evil and Eviler (you decide which is which).

Is this really the best we can do, America? Doesn’t America deserve better?

We had some pretty capable leaders in the mix at the start of the latest presidential campaigning. But one by one candidates bowed out because Americans, the same ones who made Jerry Springer a household name, chose shock popularity over substance.  

I’ve been shocked and offended repeatedly by the classless tactics employed by the candidates to get their party’s nominations. Name calling, insulting, and degrading rival candidates (and their spouses), and then having the nerve to ask them to back their campaign. 

Can’t candidates talk on the issues and lead with eloquent vision anymore? Must they resort to degrading their competition?

Now we can all sit and watch the reality TV (and I mean REALITY – this is REAL people, not a television show) as the two millionaire candidates, who were once polite enough to invite, accept, attend and pose together for a nice photo together at the other’s wedding, turn to degrading their former host/guest in the most dastardly terms possible. How two-faced, back-stabbing and evil is that?


It’s just beginning. The next 5 months are going to be ruthless, shocking, disturbing, offensive – and ultimately disappointing – as one of these individuals are more than likely going to go down in history as our next American president.  

Let’s hope they don’t take us all down with them. But if they do, I guess we’ll get what we’ve got coming to us.  

Or, maybe we can all come to our senses on election day, and write in a vote for an independent Average Joe for President (

 It could happen.

My blog is a satire for all with stories, adventures, and opinions based on facts with minimal evidence and maximum wit. In short, a chronicle of my life. I hope you enjoy perusing my random banter, hilarious adventures, short stories with imaginative characters and hidden meanings, my unique wit, interests in pop culture and oddball opinions.
