Disapproval

We’re just weeks from Election Day, and I’ve finally reached my point of saturation. No, this has got nothing to do with John McCain, Barack Obama, or even Sarah Palin (even if seeing her get the Terry Tate treatment is extremely enjoyable). It isn’t about 20-man analyst shows, Joe the Plumber, or the manufactured suspense over who’s going to endorse who.

I just can’t take anymore “I’m so-and-so, and I approve this message” gags.

I don’t know about you, but I see and hear them everywhere. Random people walking down the street, bloggers, Sonny Jurgensen… all of you. Stop it. You’re not running for president. You’re not on anyone’s bumper sticker that will be obsolete in a couple of weeks. Your campaign is not being lampooned on Saturday Night Live. You’re not “that one.” You’re not being funny. I’ve had it.

Bet you thought I’d say it here, didn’t you? No. Not even ironically.

  1. So you DON’T approve their message. Hm…

    That’s right. I don’t care if they approve.

  2. I think from now on, they should end all campaign commercials with “that’s what she said”.

  3. what about spaghetti cat?
