With the two major presidential candidates being both similar and wrong on virtually every issue, as they seem to be every four years, this election is more like the cola wars of the 1980’s when the major soda brands spent millions trying to sell the public on slightly different versions of same product. Obama wants to buy the world a Coke and McCain wants us to believe his Pepsi Palin is “generation next,” with each hoping the sweet taste will continue to hide their acidity. Rush Limbaugh used to accuse liberals of putting “style over substance” and yet we are now seeing both Democrats and Republicans fawning over their respective parties’ newest interior decorators. Personality has trumped politics and fashion is now mistaken for philosophy. This election isn’t about “change.” It’s about panache.
