Word of the day - Politiclysm

Politiclysm - The state of politics when a comedian and a pundit can have a more interesting and informative debate than the Presidential candidates.

Myself, like most people I know where completely appalled watching President Obama let Mitt Romney walk all over him in the debate. We wondered why the President didn't call out Romney on his blatant lies. No one did or said anything as Mitt continually interrupted the President and the moderator. Both debaters continually pivoted off topic and just blabbered on about whatever they wished. The whole thing was a disaster and completely depressing to watch. I hope for the next debate Obama grows a pair.

Those of us lucky enough to see The Rumble in the Air Conditioned Auditorium were privy to view an actual political debate. Two opponents discussing real issues of import and speaking to each other directly, not just reading prepared statements. Both parties called out by their opponent when topics were disagreed upon. It was both informative as well as entertaining. Almost made me wish these guys were running for office. Oh yeah and E.D. Hill was way cuter and in control of her moderator position than Jim Lehrer was.

It's a sad state of affairs when supposed comedy gets more serious than politics. I truly hope that Americans will demand more for it's candidates before deciding with side of the fence to jump to.

It's not really an issue of Red or Blue, it's more black and white. The truth is out there... Demand it people!
