Yes, it’s that time of year. No not fall, election season. The presidential debates are over, but the war is far from complete. Voters are bombarded with ads, calls, promos, and everything in between, motivating them to get out and vote. With the change of the leaves comes a change in attitude. Here’s why I love election season:
-I get more phone calls in one day by pollers than I did all of last semester combined.
-Those Geico commercials are getting old. Candidates trashing each other on television is way more exciting. It’s like WWE, Washington Edition.
-Getting an email from Mitt Romney. It's really him, I know it is!
-Seeing how many variations of red and blue ties Romney and Obama can wear. Creativity is key.
-People who usually blow up my newsfeed with whiney statuses about their life switch to whiney statuses about candidates. At least it’s a refreshing change.
-Every time I can say something intelligent about politics, it makes me feel just a little bit awesome.
-I have to read so much less of the newspaper to stay informed: every one of their stories about Obama and Romney are the same.
-Who doesn’t love getting the free “I Voted” sticker?
Oh election season, you keep my fall interesting. I can’t wait to see you again in 4 years.
