There is humor in this election season. I have to dig for it, though. Or maybe I just have to shut off the intense thinking that just goes round and round in circles and listen.
There was a news story yesterday about Romney’s son who said he wanted to jump out into the middle of the debate the other night and punch the president after he implied that Romney is a liar. That wasn’t the funny part. His brother was then quoted: “I have been hit by my brother,” he said. “And, believe me; the president has nothing to worry about.”
I follow some of the threads on my Facebook from both conservative friends and family and liberal. One such thread was about the truth/non-truth of what the candidates are saying during the campaign. “So,” wrote one person, “When my candidate says something untrue, it is a lie, a deliberate attempt to fool the American people. But when your candidate does it, he is just trying to emphasize a point.” The author of the comment before this one got befuddled. “I wish there were a third party candidate.”
I laughed as I read it, but really, is this crazy or what?
