ImagesI see websites and blog posts picking on McCain (and Palin) and Obama. I see lots supporting Obama. But I don’t see many supporting McCain…

Maybe it’s just the (digital) places that I hang out? Or maybe that just says more about me…

These are my new rules for campaigning:

  • You can’t talk about your opponent.

That’s it. I’m tired of them answering a question by talking about their opponent. It doesn’t tell me what they are thinking. It’s a waste of time if I want to hear what a politician is thinking and planning if they are wasting half their time talking about what their opponent is (or isn’t) doing.

Politics for Dummies Ann DeLaneyThey need to sell themselves! Show us what they can do. Convince me to like you not to dislike the “other guy”…Imagine if you were trying to get a job and you spent half your time talking about (and bad mouthing) the competition. Or if you were trying to get a date and badmouthing the other guy trying to win her heart. Or telling the police office who pulled you over that guy in the other lane was driving faster. You’re not going to get very far.

Speaking the competitions name over and over and over again can’t be great marketing either. How often do you see Coke or Pepsi mention their competitor in an ad?

So after a year it looks like my most popular posts (based on comments) are ones discussing Tempurpedic Mattresses and Charlie Sheen’s Shirts. I’ve gotten a few on some of my semi-political posts which I try to post so neutral people generally think my opinion is the opposite of what it actually is.

These are also a few of the things people most often get here from search engines. Other searches often found are Senior Quotes, a long quote from Garden State, duck tape prom dresses, boogers immune system and a few others.

In case you weren’t sure all these items are on the site, just check the search engine. Occasionally I get some weird ones like “guess book of individual cat sale in las vegas” which just all those words were somewhere on one archive page, I just can’t believe I rank second on a google search like that…
