  Oh those whacky Republicans were at it again the other night
and political pundits had a field day with a wealth of moronic
material to use. One candidate can't count to 5 to save his life.
Another flat out lies to your face. Don't call him on it though he
might stab you. The only Woman in the crowd also is ignorant
of the truth and acts most the time like the whacked gossipy
neighbor who gets their info from the Nat. Enquire or the Onion.
 And then there is the 600 lbs. gorilla in the room The Donald.
Although not a comedian as his dud of a performance as the host
of S.N.L. proved he is none the less entertaining in the political
setting. So unpredictable. Wanting to revive a sixty year old
gov'ment scandal known as operation wetback was a kooky Uncle
type remark. Every debate [Their words not mine] seems to be
propping up the opposition for a big win next year.

And so the blitz begins. A week before Halloween
I started to see a commercial for a certain big electronics
store. In the spot a man in a red scarf is not "elfin'" around
[Their words not mine..] when it comes to shopping for gifts.
I decided to count how many times I encounter the spot before
its really the holidays. So far since the last week of October I
counted 23 airings. As soon as I see the bald head and the red
scarf I count it as one and change the channel. I detest commercials
and always have another show, usually a sporting event to fill in the
air time. So just a glimpse of the spot I'm counting. All the while
chuckling to myself . The Houston Ballet's production of the nut-
whacker spot has it beat probably 5 to 1. No wonder people go,
they're brainwashed. Enjoy the set.
