Tired of the Election?

Okay, yes I know that this presidential election is making history.
Never before has a woman or an african american been a serious candidate for president, with actual prospects of receiving the nomination of a legitimate party. (Sorry Reverend Jackson, you don't count).
And I know that that is amazing and our political system is a wonder, but I am getting tired of candidates who make promises they have no intention of keeping, candidates who say one thing to one group and another thing to another, and the media who shows us only what they want us to see.
I am disenchanted by all of the canditates still in the race at this point, and discouraged by our prospects for the next 4 years.
So when I was walking tonight and this Monty Python sketch came up randomly on my ipod, it gave me cause to take a deep breath and laugh.
It's not a situation of "It's funny because it's true", but rather a situation of "it's funny because it was funny to begin with, but also because it's ironically close to reality".
So please enjoy Monty Python's Election Night Special.

Don't worry, I still love America, and always will. But at least I can rely on the British for a laugh now and then.

My favorite line: "Well this is largely as I predicted, except that the Silly party won. I think this is mainly due to the number of votes cast."

I don't know which I'm more tired of- the politicans or political pundits.
