And By the Way

Here are things that I will not miss about this election:

Guilt by Association. I think "William Ayers" is the new "Willie Horton" in Republican presidential campaigning. It's sad how the McCain is reduced to raising FUD about vague associations in Obama's past, in a desperate attempt to tarnish his reputation. To McCain's supporters, let me ask you something: would it be fair to judge you using the history of everyone you've ever worked with, had a drink with, or shook hands with?

The worst example is right here in North Carolina: Elizabeth Dole is running an ad attempting to link Kay Hagan with an atheist PAC called "Godless Americans", because they donated to her campaign. Not only shouldn't that matter, but Kay Hagan was a SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER. I mean, really.

The term "RINO". For those of you who aren't familiar with this, it stands for "Republican In Name Only", and is a derogatory term for any Republican who dares to speak out against the party line. That term was applied to McCain for much of his career. Now, it's being used on notable moderate Republicans like Colin Powell, or D Magazine editor Wick Allison (who posted this thoughtful article). If folks like this are RINOs, then only people left in the "real" Republican party must be right-wing extremists. No wonder the party is adrift.

Joe the Plumber. If there was ever a stupid theme for this election, it's the idea that some Republican voter heckling Obama about taxes would be held up as the archetypical American. He was never an undecided voter. He's not even a plumber. And his taxes aren't going to go up. The whole thing is just ridiculous.

Animals Choosing Elections. Finally: can we please end the practice of using domestic or barnyard animals to predict the results of elections?

After this is over, I never, ever want to hear the word "maverick" again. Can we remove it from the English language altogether?
