I can’t help myself, the political campaign has snagged me, I scream at the TV or the radio or even at the newspapers but with the exception of Revenge on Wednesday nights I have nothing to entertain me. So here goes;

One candidate is in favor of legalizing drugs, bringing all the troops home and believes that our liberty is more important than spending excessive amounts on our security.

One party is in favor of cuts in spending and reforming the tax code, keeping Guantanamo open and troops in Afghanistan, and accepting the Patriot Act.

What happened to the days when you could tell what your party stood for? Like the great Jacques Barzun, I have become a cheerful negativist!
