I don't visit this part of the forums often, primarily because my interest in the US elections is minimal. But since I've arrived in this forum tonight I've noticed a few things and I wanted to share them with you. The most striking thing is that everybody's obsessed with Sarah Palin. Whether it's because you think she's a different choice or because she might have a pregnant daughter (like a lot of American people!), she gets a LOT of coverage here. I noticed that there is a huge bias here in favour of the Democratic Party and that many of the so-called Democrat supporters are eager to talk about nothing but Republicans. Wait, what? Yes, you people who are so into Obama are desperate to tell us about McCain and Palin. This is a completely alien concept to me as a resident of the United Kingdom. Here, parties campaign based on policy and very, very rarely engage in the promotion of their opponents in the way we see here and across the US media. Politicians here want to talk about themselves and the media compares them. We don't see adverts spewing out nonsense about a candidate's family or church, it's all about them and their policy - isn't that what matters? Lastly, I'm totally sick of this now. It has been going on for well over a year and it's getting very wearing. Here you're lucky if you see a candidate campaigning a month before the election, never mind this far ahead. Do you guys honestly think that anything you say today is going to influence the vote in two months' time? It will all be forgotten by then and I cannot wait. I'll finally be able to watch BBC or FOX News without constant Obama this or Palin that. I just hope that all of you folks who invest so much time in this think it's worth it.
