Candidates Who Excite the ignorant

In 2008 the Democrat Party introduced a very exciting presidential candidate that actually won in Indiana... You have to be a very exciting Democrat Candidate to win in Indiana.

He had no accomplishments but he was "the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean" according to Joe Biden... and for expressing so remarkable a compliment for an African-American male, Joe was made his running mate...  The reasoning being that for Joe to go out upon such a tenuous limb as to call a black man bright and clean, he deserved the Vice Presidency.

Obama lacked any credentials in his first campaign and brandished no accomplishments in his second campaign... but he was exciting.  And, he looked nice and had a nice voice... just like people on TV... And in the spirit of Affirmative Action... Well, you know the outcome.

This year the Republicans are offering up a very exciting candidate of their own, and just as with the Obama campaigns, ignorant people are lining up to get excited over him.  He is a vulgar ignoramus... just like people on TV.

This may be an ongoing trend in America as our citizens become more TV-entertainment fixated and more ignorant of history and its lessons.

I think your last sentence sums up one (of the many) problems our country is facing. We want to be entertained. We don't want to think. We want to feel good. We want excitement all the time!

What we need is sanity.

Hope to see you soon!
