    Oh, excellent! Love your song choice!

  2. Yes, they sure are good at slinging it . Aren’t they…
    I loved this….it spoke to a lot of my senses! Visually stunning and I hope we can find some shades of gray ;D

  3. Very clever, that Einstein!

  4. I find the insanity of the electorate the most disconcerting. When folks go around interviewing the common voter about why they chose who they did, we are embarrassed for the majority of them — the majority — in a country where the majority win.

    • sometimes the majority win, sometimes they don’t ~ the electoral college does not always align with the total votes a la 2000. thank you for stopping by, Sabio!

    We must definitely look with a very discerning eye to see anything different in elections. But over time…campaigning has changed since FDR! (not that I recall those elections LOL)

    • talk about changes! twitter, facebook, blogs, 24-hour cable news… the immediacy {accurate or not} of our news is just one change due to technology. but, they’re still slingin’ the mud…

  6. LOL sis. You nut! Better governing through chemistry?

  7. Oh, this is clever! Great job, Dani!

  8. Insane timeliness. And genius that you did it for two prompts.

  9. Hmm I enjoy what you did visually and especially with the choice to display the word candidates like you did…CanDidAtes…interesting!! Nicely done, Dani!

  10. smiles…i like your word play…..and its true….ugh, politics def leaves much to be desired…and now we have to come back together to actually makes some progress on the things facing our nation…

  11. oh my..the mudpies made me smile…and love the quote you started with…ha…hope dies last you know..smiles

  12. Love the layout, type, visual “performance” and sheer brio of the piece. Would love to hear this read. Would be wonderful I have no doubt. Loved it.
