A correlation between Nascar, the Presidential Election and Miss America!
As I sit in my hotel room tonight, awaiting the results of this election, I suddenly find myself feeling bad. Because one of these guys is going to lose. “Well Angry, isn’t that the point?” Yes, I suppose. But I can’t help but feel the same way I did last November when I watched the final Sprint Cup Nascar race of the season. The battle was between Tony Stewart and Carl Edwards and I told many of my
redneck Nascar friends that no matter who won, I couldn’t be disappointed because these were my two favorite drivers! I forgot that if one of my two favorite drivers won, then one of them also lost.
Don’t get me wrong, these aren’t my two favorite Presidential candidates. I don’t think that either President Obama or Governor Romney are evil, but I also don’t think that either one is a savior. I guess that puts me in the minority. I truly believe that each one of them is convinced that he can do a better job than the other and that he is “right”. I have no disillusions that any politician is altruistic, but I believe that they all begin with good intentions in mind. It’s up to us to make sure they stay focused once they get into office.
