"Make a Hole, Make it Wide"
Big Poppa's still trying to fathom the thought of "How stupid do political candidates think the public is?"
We live in an age when anyone can google anything they want, especially those running for government. Take this blog for instance, if Big Poppa decided to run for public office, anyone could just google my name and read all my past thoughts on political topic and attempt to use those words against.
But we live in the world of YouTube as well, so if I made a video diary of those thoughts as well, well how could I dispute them? Answer is, I couldn't.
Anything that is put on the web or in print over the past 10-15 years is easily accessiable with a few typed keywords, so how do these candidates get around it, they say they were taken out of context! How insane is that. "Well yes I was talking about skinning a cat out in the bayou, but that was taken out of context" Even though the video may show other, like say a skinned cat.
So what am I really getting at, well over the past few weeks, some of these candidates, from both sides of the aisle, still think they can get away with "out of context" situations. Some cannot and must face the evidence.
Take Ms. Christine O'Donnell for example. Now I've watch Bill Maher's Politically Incorrect show way back when (geez talk about showing ones age) and she had been a guest about 15 times or more. Bill Maher owns all the rights to that show, so he has all the video. So M.s O'Donnell back in the day states she had dabbled in other religions from Christianity to Hinuism to Buddism and even Witchcraft on one episode. And in another she said she went one date with someone who was part of the Witchcraft religion. Yet there is other video from her on MTV years past talking about her Christian faith and all.
Ms. O'Donnell's campaign team realized a pathetically made commercial where she states "I am not a Witch" which fine, but her campaign staff should be fired. The sad background and dark clothing made it drab and easy to poke fun of. Add some color, she's a cheerful person for Pete's sake. If they were smart, they should've let her talk about her past, wanting to learn about other religions in comparison to her faith in Christianity. By doing that, it makes her more well-rounded, more intuitive of a person. Afterall, in this day when people are attacking others about their religions, it gives Ms. O'Donnell a more "worldly" appearance, as in she knows about these religions, as opposed to those who hear a bad thing about one religion and start a crusade against it.
I give her Democratic opponent, Chris Coons, credit. During their debates, he has only debated policy and not character, which in itself is a breathe of fresh air in these volatile political times
