Wednesday Thoughts

If you're like me you are so glad election day is over. I love voting and I care about the issues, but I am so tired of the negative attack ads! This election has been particularly negative, if you ask me. The ads have been almost comical in their aggressiveness and accusations.

Even I was not exempt from attack. Check out this poster I found tacked up all over town:


My own sister! What we were running for, I have no idea. I guess we just got caught up in election fever. Even the best of us can't resist the appeal of a good smear campaign.

Happy Wednesday.

Hee heee!!! This is the BEST smear campaign since Little Pete ran for...whatever it was he ran for!! Look at how patriotic I am! AND loving on a puppy! Seriously, I love this poster more than I can say. :)

And whatever it was we ran for, I'm sure this poster tipped the scales for me!! Hoo hooo!! Good stuff!

Hilarious!! :) PS: I voted for a write-in candidate...the puppy! And it won, so will now be in charge of all decision-making surrounding...gosh, I have no idea! :)

Katherine has my vote for sure!

Oh, this is so confusing! Look at the puppies. Katherine is obviously not holding the same dog as Elizabeth. Which is the real puppy? Who am I to believe?

This is going to bother me for the next two years, or at least until the 2012 primaries.

Now you know how it feels to have negative posters about yourself posted all over town and blowing in the streets!

I think it was over who should own the N.K.O.T.B. poster. Katherine got the western Michigan vote and that put her over the top. Can't trust those Grand Rapidians - does that name make them big, fast reptilians? I think so.

Elizabeth, whose dog are you holding? Is that puppy from rent-a-dog? You remind me of a politican holding someone's baby!(lol)

HA!! Oh man!! I LOVE this! Psh, and we thought she up in the Grand Rapids getting an edumacation....man, little did we know she is out trying to ruin your LIFE! I vote Elizabeth, for sure! Besides, I think there is a scheme of people trying to triumph and take over the world...got to watch out for people like them! ;-)

you know what this reminds me of? When I was about 14, we were on a trip to maine. Katherine sat in the middle row of the van and me in the back. At some point (I think I mentally blocked this part out) she poked me in the eye. Well about a half hour later I got a letter from the "middle row" and it was an apology. But at the bottom she wrote, and I quote, "hee hee". Now if that isn't the start to a dirty politician, I don't know what is.

Lol. (That's my story and I'm stickin to it.)
