i've been thinking about this the past few days and weeks nearing the election (and i don't want to start a obama vs. mccain argument here). more than ever, everyone seems to be putting blatant political messages into everything, into food, sports, etc, places where politics was pretty much a no-no to go into before. i'm wondering if this is just election season or if we in america have decided that political messages are acceptable everywhere, instead of being one of the three topics that we're not supposed to talk about it. i heard that back in the 60's, politics and political messages were just about everywhere, and i'm wondering if we're coming back to that. so i want to know if this is actually happening or not.
