Election. Shmelection.

My letter to the presidential candidates:

Dear Mr. Romney and President Obama,

As you know, it's October in Ohio on an election year. Which means constant political mumbo jumbo flooding our ears and eyes. Honestly, it's stressful.

I'm not an overly political person, but I have my own set of beliefs, and that is where I base my political choice. I mean it's important to vote and to have your say yada yada yada, but sheesh back the heck off.

Isn't the pursuit of happiness the reason that my English relatives came to this great country? I'm currently in pursuit of November, when all of this melarky will be over.

I yern for the days that I could watch some mindless television without hearing how great or horrible the presidential candidates are. I get maybe, an hour of me time, where no one is bothering me to do something for them, the absolute LAST thing I want to hear about are two grown men arguing like children. Seriously, I hear that all day long. I have a 2 year old.

and since when do people believe everything that they see on t.v? Do you really think that someone who was heck bent on voting one way is going to change their mind because of an ad that they saw on tv? I mean I LOVE those fun party scene beer commercials, but do I run out and buy a 6 pack everytime I see a commercial? NOPE.  I would love a party as much as the next 26 year old, but that doesn't fit my lifestyle. Besides, I know what really happens at those parties. I went to college. Shame and regret doesn't look good on anyone.

Regardless, all I am asking is for an hour that I can watch actual IMPORTANT drama... uninterrupted,.  I mean where are the campaign managers for Theresa Gudice and Caroline Manzo? Those are candidates that I can get behind.

So in these last few weeks, I wish that you would spend less money on advertising and publicity, but I want you to address the real problems and issues. Because it doesn't matter who wins this election, as long as our society's moral compass is stuck on South, our country is going to hell in a handbasket quick.

Get yourselves together and in the words of the late, great Micheal Jackson..."leave me alone".
