They say too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. If that’s true, then too much of a bad thing must be just awful. I think I may be hitting that point in this year’s presidential election…and there’s still five months to go!
I try to stay abreast on the campaign proceedings and viewpoints as much as I can. I flip back and forth between CNN, MSNBC and FOX to try to get as wide a range of coverage as I can stomach.
I was sitting on the couch this afternoon, watching an interview on CNN with the recently let go campaign manager for DJT (“you’re fired!”) and something happened.
Or maybe nothing happened.
The interview itself was fruitless, as the man dodged all attempts for insight and kept tightly focused on his message of support for the candidate. It was an exceptional show of loyalty and deserving of praise from his former employer’s camp.
At some point during the droning, reality burped. When it reasserted itself, I noticed that I had been shifted forward in time. I found myself, still at home, on the couch and in front of the TV, but my head was drooped and the remote hung loosely in my grip.
Had I been abducted by aliens and replaced, but so carelessly that I was able to discern their apparent attempt to deceive me? Had the universe itself skipped a beat and I was the only one aware?
Or had I merely, at 2 in the afternoon, after a healthy lunch and during a boring interview, simply fallen asleep for a few minutes.
On the remote chance it was the latter, I turned off the TV and stepped away. Shortly, I’ll rejoin a book I started and the presidential campaign will just have to roll by for a day without me.
I’m sure someone will tell me what I missed.
