The MK gang loves politics. We’ve personally met both candidates, we read about it, talk about it, and the conventions were almost as eagerly anticipated as season three of Downton Abbey.

But we asked ourselves after the conventions ended and we brushed the fictional confetti from our shirt sleeves–why didn’t anyone talk about housing? What about foreclosure? Hello…short sales anyone?

Our heroes at The Wall Street Journal noticed the same thing. And, yes, it wasn’t our imagination…the whole issue went untouched by both parties. Turns out although it is the issue largely to blame for our economic woes, it is also not a glamorous topic for the candidates to hang their hats on.

Let’s hope it gets some airtime during the debates.
