As The Campaign Heats Up

Actually, the campaign is still plodding along, but the supporters on both sides are heating up. Minds will not be changed anymore, because each side is totally focused on defending both the good and bad around their chosen candidates, and attacking both the good and bad of the other side.

It annoys the hell out of me, because I see good and bad on both sides, but it's pointless to show the bad to the supporters, or the good to the opponents. They are entrenched, and for every argument there is an equal or greater rant. Political inertia can neither be created nor destroyed, but it can be converted into words - at roughly the same proportions as Einstein's equation: Words = (Facts x Emotions) squared.
