Political Campaigns

I'm getting super sick of seeing political ads on every other commercial. I know they want/need publicity to have a better chance of getting into whatever offices they'd like to get into, but seriously, I'm waiting on some true substance. I'm mainly talking about the Minnesota Senate commercials & the Presidential candidate commercials. It's just as trashy as some of the shows on TV if not worse. It's basically two people telling the world what the other person doesn't do right and why they don't deserve a chance, and a lot of times it's also what they WILL do that either the other candidate won't do or the current person in office hasn't done. It's just annoying. Why would I want to vote for ANYONE that can't even show that they respect the other candidate or sometimes even political party? I'm neither a democrat or a republican, I'm just looking for who I believe would be the best person for the job. There is just SO much that goes around that is untrue, wrong, and/or hurtful that it gives a horrible representation of the elections anyway. The Minnesota campaigns talk about how much money the other has wasted on trips or how much the other swears or is rude and ONLY use that content. I'm sick of people debating to the death if it's OK that Obama may be a Christian or a Muslim, and sick of hearing if the fact that Palin's daughter is pregnant is wrong or not. It's all so tiring. Let's see what they're best interests are for the US instead. OK I'm done venting but here's a really applicable quote to the situation....

"A typical vice of American politics is the avoidance of saying anything real on real issues." ~Theodore Roosevelt~
