Never mind that it’s Earth Day, it’s the Pennsylvania primary today. And if you watch/read the news, you’d assume that’s far more important than little old Earth Day. I don’t think I could have forgotten to vote today if I’d tried. It’s everywhere. The papers, signs stuck up anywhere and everywhere, the news (both local and national), blogs, etc. You can’t escape it.
This whole presidential election has been like this. It’s been everywhere and a near daily topic for a year and a half now. And we still have a little over 6 months to go. I don’t remember a presidential campaign season being this long before. And frankly, I’m sick of it.
I’ve always been an informed voter. I read up on the candidates and other ballot measures up for the vote, and make my decisions. It’s the in your face push of this election that’s getting to me. I don’t need it stuffed down my throat. Not to mention that if I got all my information from the news and didn’t do any of my own research and reading, I’d be grossly misinformed.
I’m not sure what I’m looking forward to more…election day in November so this campaign will be over, or Bush’s last day in office so his entire farce of a term will be over.
