The campaign and debate is much more important than any kind of sports.
Who wins, affects each our lives indirectly.  Look what your Mr.  Clinton
brought.  He wants to dissarm the citizens and then bring in his own
socialist thugs.  He is responsible for more money being taken out of my
check.  Since he only wants criminols to have weapons, thereby leaving me
a sitting duck.  I am blind and all the police are is a cleanup crew.
The have to treat the criminols so sweetly, it is no wonder that we have
so many repeat offenders.  I just hate Clinton and he is doing his part
to screwing up my life.  Having Dole in the Whitehouse, we will at least
have some form of common sense.  Clinton has none.
