Ball point pen on today's newsprint

I'm reminded of a Bazooka Joe comic from my youth. We see Joe searching for something under a streetlight. Jane asks what he's doing. Joe points far away into the darkness and tells Jane that he's lost something over there.

Naturally Jane asks why he's looking here, if he lost something over there?  to which Joe responds "Because the light is much better here."

The two major candidates for president always want to appear in the best light by controlling the message of the campaign. The candidate that's able go off script, think on their feet and venture into the reality of darkness will appear engaged but risks loosing control of the message. The one that continues to search in the light, may be in control but will appear very much out of touch.

Stay tuned
