When you point your finger at someone, three fingers are pointing back at you. http://www.victorialabalme.com/blog/Fingers pointing - 1 away, 3 at you.jpg That old truism makes it mighty tough for presidential wannabes. The so-called dirty campaign the public is being treated to this year is actually one of the cleanest campaigns on record as far as meat and potatoes go. Talking about the economy, jobs, healthcare, taxes, and blah, blah, blah, is not breaking new ground in the realm of campaign mudslinging, and the personal stuff has been pretty mild. Aside from the silly personal stuff my memory dredged up from previous presidential elections, both candidates have to use the index finger sparingly less their own three fingers stab them in the chest. Even if Romney and Hussein went at each other on important issues like socialism and the First Amendment; restoring Americas sovereignty; withdrawing from the United Nations; repealing the XVI and XVII Amendments; abolishing countless unnecessary, often unconstitutional, federal bureaucracies like the Department of Education, the Three Finger Rule will pretty much wipe out the pointer. This campaign season has to be extra tough on sharpshooters in both camps looking for something original to point at without stepping on any old school ties. Serendipitously, Democrats and Republicans are so engaged in the politics of banality, Tea Parties have the campaign all to themselves although youd never know it from the media coverage. Tea Partiers are not pointing fingers in the time-honored way, but they are achieving original results the establishment fears.
