Wednesday night at our house is Kid Nation night (after homework, swim practice, getting ready for bed….). So, I am sitting around with my kiddos watching a group of kids try and campaign for their elections in Bonanza City. One kid despises the incumbent so much, he pulls the signs down with a pogo stick and tears them up. The little girl that made the signs goes and cries- that was sad.
The commercials running during this show are the finest of the nastiest Louisiana political commercials. You know, those last minute ones that are all about “don’t vote for that person because he smoked crack while playing video poker” ads. Oldest son asks, “how can they allow such nasty ads?” I have to tell him that sometimes grown-ups behave badly and maybe he should consider another career option other than politics.
I had to give you some more political slogans, like the ones from my former post (if you haven’t read it – you will laugh – promise)!
Bobby Jindal hates puppies
John George’s steals kids’ lunch money
Foster Campbell picks his nose when driving
Walter Boasso doesn’t put on clean underwear every day
Tony “G” smells his socks at the end of the day
Gosh – I could keep going with these all day (and laugh out loud). “Hypocrite” is such a lame thing to call another candidate. Next time let some kids do the negative campaigning for you. BECAUSE THAT IS HOW I PERCEIVE ALL OF YOU WHEN YOU CHOOSE THIS APPROACH – A BUNCH OF MEAN KIDS – SHAME ON ALL OF YOU!!!!! Now go out to recess and try not to get beat up by the playground bully!
