This year’s presidential campaign should be exciting. Instead, it’s the most vapid I’ve seen since I started watching them in 1964. President Obama, understandably, is playing it safe because he’s ahead.

But why is Mitt Romney acting as if he’s an incumbent with a 10-point lead? Even his partisans are complaining. One supporter told Slate[1]:

“Mitt Romney should be leading by 10 or 15 points. The fact that he’s not is Mitt Romney’s problem. It’s because he’s run such a lackluster campaign that’s been so vague on ideas.”

Maybe the old investor shorted Ambien[2] stock.

At least the new guy impersonating Obama on Saturday Night Live, Jay Pharoah, is making us laugh at the whole mess. And the way things look, Pharoah will be doing this for another four years.
