Why do I do it to myself?

Spent a little bit of time yesterday watching the playoffs and the politics.

What it truly sad is that the coverage for both is pretty damn similar.  Hell, if you wanted to take the time, you could probably draw parallels between the NFL teams and the candidates.

Packers are Obama, sitting champions, good solid team, just waiting to be knocked off. 

Patriots are Romney,  unlikeable corporate scum who also look to be the most likely challenger.

Broncos are the darlings of the christer-right wing nutbag squad that backs Ron Paul.

The press is identical in the time and style of presenting both sports.

I need a drink.

It is pretty disgusting to watch. They act like a bunch of teen-agers, hurling insults and dredging up gossip, tweaking their rhetoric to suit whichever clique they happen to be babbling to... It's the same on every level, which is why I try to ignore the whole silly mess, and abstain from granting them any legitimacy by refusing to vote.
