Anyone who is pissed off that lipstick has been the lead story on the news for the last 24 hours needs to remember whose fault that is. It is not the fault of Barack Obama, who used a common expression to say John McCain's economic policies are no different than George Bush's. It most definitely is the fault of John McCain and his increasingly ridiculous, offensive campaign for not just making a stink about Obama's use of that expression, but released a freakin' ad about it! It is a waste of our time and an insult to our intelligence. But it will still work for McCain.

The sad, sad truth is that candidates like John McCain pull these silly stunts to distract the media and voters, even if only for 24 hours before everyone agrees it's nonsense, because these silly stunts work. Voters complain that they hate this kind of silly crap in campaigns, but they don't hold the responsible party accountable. They still freakin' vote for the guy.

So I guess if voters keep getting this kind of politics every campaign cycle, they have no one to blame but themselves. It would be really easy to put a stop to it: Stop voting for the candidates who stoop to this level!

UPDATE: John McCain just agreed with me. He said you the voters make the decision what kind of campaigns we want by choosing who to vote for. So if you don't like the campaign John McCain is running, he wants you to let him know by not voting for him!

It's a sad truth that American voters are ignorant of the issues, dont' take time to learn, and vote for people like it's a popularity contest.
