Political parties and their policies. That's what the election should be about. It disturbs me how the US election has become a gargantuan popularity contest. Which pres and vp candidates are most likeable? Who can you relate to? Mmm, nice suit Obama and your family is so wholesome... oh, but Palin has that neat up-do and cute-librarian-style glasses. Sigh.
My point is this: Sarah Palin's selection and her views/track record bother me, but what really gets me upset is that it's just another sign of how our political system is failing us.
