Sheer volume of negativity hit low
I've be around long enough (not since Jefferson, however) to know negative campaigning didn't start with this election cycle, but has certainly escalated. We came home yesterday and turned on the TV to a five-minute barrage of "attack, smear, attack, smear" before we could get the recorder going. Thank God for On Demand, DVR and fast forward. I am like the little girl in the YouTube video that just wants to make it stop, and not start up again so soon. Perhaps next time it would be a good thing to limit the time and money we spend tearing each other, and our total being, down. A possibility is to just have ads limited to one channel, or two channels and call one FOX and one HOUND, which one could tune to if he has the stomach, or sense of humor. I have neither, so I watched reruns, for me, of "Gunsmoke," even during the debate.
