Public Service Announcement

To Our Foreign Guests:

I am reminded to make this timely announcement:
This blog, other blogs you read and the mainstream media might give you a skewed impression of how much time the average American spends thinking about the election and how much he or she cares; that is, any or at all.

Right you are. Our media too. The BBC seems to spend an inordinate amount of news time covering an electoral campaign in which we have no vote.

As little time as we spend thinking about the election is many times as much as we spend caring about what the rest of the world thinks about it.

But nonetheless far less than you spend worrying about whether the rest of the world really undertstands how little you care about what they think, no? :-)

erp said...

Peter, you're right, it should have said, we spend NOT caring ... present company excluded of course.

Thank you for picking that up.

Brit said...

Yeah well, the amount of time you spend not caring about what the rest of the world thinks about how much you care about the election is many more times fewerer than the amounts of times I spend caring about how little you care about whether I care what you think about the election.

Who honestly spends anytime worrying about what a Brit cares about anything? Germans, sure, but Brits?
