Letters: Wrestle for the White House

July 31, 2012

Re "Virginia caught in attack ad crossfire," July 26

I remember a time (I'm 68) when constant negative ads and such a truly disgusting elongated period of campaigning were unheard of. Why have party conventions anymore? What, now, is their purpose? Maybe for the delegates to indulge in food and drink in a city perhaps they've never been to before?

The campaigns have become reality TV shows, except this is for real. Where will it all end? Maybe, to spare us, they will just have a wrestling match and the winner becomes president.
