Just kill us now?
Advertisements [?]
Two of the men campaigning for the most powerful elected office in the world are doing so on the basis of their comparative knowledge of grits?

Willard: I am learning to say y'all and to like grits. Strange things are happening to me.

Newton: Romney says he is just getting to know about grits. Let me assure you that I am very familiar with grits.

Seriously, can you imagine Kennedy seriously expecting someone in Massachusetts to vote for him because he knew about baked beans or Boston cream pie?

If this is the caliber of campaigning anymore, I don't know if I am going to make it until Election Day. If I don't, just remember: I loved you all. (Or y'all, if that makes you any happier.)
