101 Ways To Escape The Political Playground

Tue Jan 08, 2008 9:29 pm

So we're only in the second week of the year, and already the playground politics is just irritating me beyond belief. There isn't a competent candidate anywhere to be found and we've got ten more months of this tedium to endure.

Thus, I propose that we collectively come up with 101 ways to get through the next ten months with as few encounters with Hillary, Obama, Rudy, Mitt, Mike, Ted, John, and all the other players in the muppet show as possible.

RULES OF THE THREAD:
This isn't political discussion. This humourous relief from the political discussion that is over-saturating our lives. Save your 'but Hillary is awesome!' and 'boo to Mike Huckabee!' posts for another thread. Keep it on topic.

Copy and paste the list in to your post and add your suggestion to the end

To get things started:

1. Watch only Comedy Central. We know that we can't escape the shenanigans completely, but at least we can get some light relief from John Stewart and Stephen Colbert.

2. See how many types of birds you can list, then try and match the bird types with political candidates. Then when the campaigns hit your state, go to a debate and attempt to attract the attention of the candidates with the relevant bird mating call.

3. Show up to a campaign rally and see if a yawn really is contagious.

Over to you, voters...

I'm not a US citizen, hence why I can't vote, but anyway...

4. Watch lots of football (doesn't matter what kind of football, the Superbowl is coming up, American football season will soon start in Europe, the MLS will start, and there's still La Liga, the Premier League (both EPL and SPL), Champions League, Copa Libertadores, UEFA-Cup, Euro 08, the Serie A and of course the Bundesliga). I personally suggest watching lots of Bundesliga, Premier League and European Cup (UCL, UEFA-Cup, Euro 2008) because they're politics free.
