Why is Bobby Schilling sending all these letters to everyone? I'd say, a lot of postage used up for nothing. Oh well, the post office won't be closing as long as he's sending out mail and I'm not talking about the voting material that's being sent.

I even got a small newspaper all about Bobby. He's doing this and that. What a lie(s)! He's in Congress, isn't he? Congress hasn't done anything all year and it was said that this Congress has been the laziest in ages.

So what has Bobby done? He's been running down his opponent and lying about her just to stay in office. I haven't heard one word about what he's going to do for us Americans.

In fact, I haven't heard too much about what all the candidates are going to do for us, just insulting their opponents right and left. The advertisements on TV are getting ridiculous!
