bird poops on plum branch
Amongst a million articles about Clinton and Obama bickering with each other and calling it campaigning, I liked these two sentences:

"Around election time, the candidates can't do enough for you. They'll promise you anything, give you a long list of proposals and they'll even come around, with TV crews in tow, to throw back a shot and a beer," Obama said.

In response, the Clinton campaign circulated an e-mail including photographs of Obama at similar events, such as feeding a baby cow with a milk bottle and bowling. [source]

I like that campaigning is and the art of trying to gain mass approval of the public is starting to eat its own tail.  I like that they're coming to this, and I hope that this could be one of the first signs of the destruction of something that I can't describe but which I have never liked.
