After a very tumultuous week for yours truly, I guess it shouldn’t have come as a big surprise to me that I could not sleep Friday night. I’ve got a lot on my mind these days. So after tossing and turning and staring at the alarm clock and seeing 12:15, 1:20, 2:10 and finally 3:12 a.m., I just gave up and turned on the TV.  That was a mistake #1!

With some 300 TV stations to watch I think 299 of them were infomercials trying to sell me something. I didn’t see any anti-insomniac pills being advertised. And why not? I Would think that would be a perfect time to promote them? So I kept searching for something to watch and I finally settled on watching a news channel. That was mistake #2.

There was Kasich commented on something. Then it was Trump this, Cruz that, Hillary this and Bernie that.  My God, enough is enough. Don’t these people know I can’t sleep as it is?  It is only April.  We still have seven more months to go to listen to all of this before we elect somebody to be our next President.

The real question to be asked is.. are these five people the best this country has to offer the American people? I think NOT. What happened to us? I’ll tell you what happened.  It is called 24 hour 7 day a week news coverage channels. That is an awful lot of time to fill with news every single day.

The really qualified people are scared to death to run for office in that the news media will find out that some 35 years ago a candidate, who was then 17 years old, got a little “handsy” on prom night. Uh oh. Cross him off the list for President or any other potential office.

Almost everyone has something in their closet from their past. If we are waiting for the perfect person to step up and run for office it’s not Trump, Cruz, Kasich, Clinton or Sanders. I guess that leaves me!!!  Now, I will never be able to sleep!
