1/18/'10 Five Minute Riffs

Polls.

Some say Brown will win the election while others say Coakley will win. The campaign is intense—constant television ads, telephone calls from everyone from top level politicians to sports figures. The pervasive automated telephone calls bother everyone irrespective of political beliefs. People on the street corners holding placards. Friends pigeon holing friends and acquaintances to remind them to vote for their candidate. And who believes anyone. The way this is going half lies are preferable to honest reporting. And all the soothsayers—if the democrat wins, if the republican wins —then the world collapses. Each candidate warns against the other candidate. At this point I'd love to see an Ivory scrubbed face appear on the scene—the budding savior of American politics.
