I was catching up on my favorite “soap” yesterday, “As My Stomach Turns, ” and right before the good part, this ad came on, something about election medication.

Now I’ve been around a number of years, I’ve been involved in election campaigns, but this is the first time I have ever heard of a medication for elections!

The doctor pushing this medication, had to be one of those physiatist fellows, better known as a “shrink.”

He said his medication would make me feel much better about elections, but he neglected to say if I should take it before, or after the vote was counted.  I can see how such medication could work either way.

Taken before elections, you mind would be numbed to the crapola being delivered by the participants.  Taken after the vote, you would be eased in the knowledge that the person you voted for, was no better than the crook you ousted.

In any event, the ad went on to say, my life would be so much better for having taken this election medication.

Too, it was not made clear as to application of this medication.  Do you drink it, chew it, shoot it, or rub it in?

Anyway, I have an appointment with my doctor, next month, and I was told by the TV man, to be sure to ask my doctor if this election medication is right for me.  I can hardly wait to find out!

The last time I went to the doctor, I got there in plenty of time to do the reams of paper-work, sat in the waiting room that seemed like hours.

Then I was ushered into another room, where the nurse did her thing with BP, temperature, etc., and I waited another eon to see the man.  I finally caught the nurse, during one of her many trips up and down the hallway, and asked waht the hold up was with the doctor.

She said he was calling the golf courses, trying to locate his attorney, to see if it would be all right to proceed with my case!  Figures!

Using the last visit as an example, and with a little luck, maybe I can get my election medication in time for the November mid-terms!

I certainly don’t dare go into the polling booths un-medicated!

Anyway, aren’t modern medicines wonderful, what won’t they think of next!



Note:  My apologies to Raymond and all for the untimeliness of this posting.  I know it was meant for October.  Just found it buried under stacks on my desk, but the humor is warranted during any election or doctors visit.



Medication — 2 Comments

  1. I went to my Dr. for “election dysfunction”.
    He prescribed the same medication as the candidates wanted to give me.
    He even wanted to administer it the same way:(
    I hope you have better luck than me.

  2. Late or not, it was funny. So much is being advertised on TV especially after midnight to 5:00 am. One could really have a great time writing about these ads. Good one Ray. I enjoyed it.
