I'm a little discouraged. Every day, I hear of folks who keep switching who they plan to vote for or decide to abstain from voting altogether ---- all based on info interpreted by the media.
And, honestly, I find this incredibly upsetting. The media rarely presents the full story. They often take the most trivial details and sensationalize it to the point of an exaggerated rumor. I know the media is having a field day with McCain's recent admission that he doesn't know how many houses he has. Umm...who actually listened to the rest of the sentence? Who actually paid attention to the context of the question and the answer? And who immediately disliked McCain due to this small trivial detail?
Sometimes, I wonder: Exactly WHAT do people base their political decisions on? Are they ever rational?
(I'm almost afraid to ask... Has anybody ever even read Obama's and McCain's books?)
