Thom and Kay are killing me. If I see one more commercial with one candidate bashing another I’m gonna go out of my mind.
Apparently Thom Tillis hates education. He also hates teachers, the elderly and immigrants.
Kay Hagan seemingly has made millions off of the government stimulus package which she voted for – which surprises me because, according to Thom, she is constantly missing meetings and votes because she is always at campaign fundraisers.
Thom says that Kay won’t work with the Republicans. She says that she was voted the most nonpartisan Senator. Both of those statement cannot be true.
The other day my friend’s nine-year-old son asked: “Who are you voting for dad?”
His father responded, “Well, I’m not sure yet. Probably Kay Hagan. I think I like her better.”
His son then shared, “You know, you can’t trust Thom Tillis.”
A nine-year-old has deduced that Thom Tillis cannot be trusted!
Why do we fall for it? Aren’t we smarter than this?
They come on TV, a beautiful setting, its sunny outside. They introduce themselves and admit that they are responsible for the contents of the message. And then…
It turns to black and white. Their opponent has their mouth half-open chomping down on a piece of fried chicken. Their skin is washed out. In bold the big letters and numbers start:
96% – the number of times Kay Hagan has voted with Obama, displayed beside the damning figure the most atrocious photo of the duo embracing. Are Kay and Barack really THAT close? Are they often standing arm in arm? I wonder if they go camping together?
$495,000,000 – the amount of money Thom Tillis has taken straight from our school children. Camera pans in on big-eyed orphans adding with an abacus because there is no money for a calculator. Or a pencil for that matter. By the way, he also hates kids.
And we believe them! We allow these 20 second blips to color our thoughts about who will be RUNNING our country. And the biggest problem is, I can’t figure out where to find the truth! The newspaper is biased, the news stations are biased and the commercials are about as reliable as my 2003 gas-powered edger.
I give up!
And they wonder why folks don’t exercise their right to vote. Geeze.
