Polls got you ticked?? Politics can be extremely upsetting, divisive, and generally downright depressive.
One way I deal with the negativity is by looking for some levity. Here is an example:
She's a former nun, an Army major, a lawyer, a college professor and a physician. Now Dr. Barbara Bellar wants to be a state senator from Illinois, and she has one question about ObamaCare.
"What the blank could possibly go wrong?" Bellar asks, tongue in cheek, after delivering a one-sentence indictment of President Obama's health care law.
Bellar, a Republican candidate running for office in the state's 18th district, gave the extended one-liner while warming up the crowd at a recent event for GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Someone captured it on video, and now the doctor's diagnosis of the Affordable Care Act is an Internet sensation with more than 2 million views.
"So, let me get this straight. This is a long sentence," Bellar begins, "We are going to be gifted with a health care plan that we are forced to purchase, and fined if we don't," Bellar continues, "signed by a president who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that's broke."
