Tonight I watched the "Presidential Candidate Forum on National Service". One of the commercial sponsors was an anti-wrinkle product with Retinol. Both of the candidates wore heavy make-up. I am so disappointed that neither of them would wave away the make-up artist saying "Let them see the real me."
I want a scrubbed and unscripted and unvetted candidate. I would like a candidate in a tee shirt and jeans who is so focused on our national problems that he doesn't have time to knot a tie or apply deodorant or get a haircut. I just want him to be clean. In every way. And strong. And efficient. And to think of things that I have not thought of.
