With a degree in journalism, you’d think that the political dialogue and the news coverage that an election year brings would be particularly interesting to me.
Perhaps the passing years as well as the passing debates and attack ads have made me more cynical, although friends and coworkers would say that’s not possible. However, the lack of strategy and discipline that becomes more and more evident the closer we get to Election Day, sent me searching for some relief.
Thanks to the magic of the internet, I found it in an odd place: The Winnipeg Free Press.
I simply Googled “election overload” and found that some of the editorial staff of the Free Press was seeking the same respite as I.
While I certainly don’t mean to trivialize a critical event that is as uniquely American (and Canadian) as free elections, it’s good to see that some of those who are charged with delivering the news, share the same frustrations and sense of humor as many of the rest of us.
It’s almost over. So check out the link. Take a deep breath. And, of course, don’t forget to vote.
