Is it me, or have our choices for political office, all of them, been gradually getting worse over the years? When did it become the norm to vote for the “Lesser of Two Evils” instead of the person that held the best platform, and carried the best message?
There are only two of the current candidates that I am really interested in, but I am not going to mention them here, only because I refuse to give them any free advertising.Â Should there be the unlikely event that one of them call me and ask if I would run a spread on them, then I will be happy to do so… for a fee.Â But I will make no promises about what I would write.
Anyway…Â Politics is like a really bad sitcom these days.Â A combination of “Everyone loves Raymond”, with a dash of “The Apprentice” and just a little bit of “Jerry Springer” thrown in for good measure.Â I cannot look at any of them without thinking that they are just telling us what we want to hear and truncating the rest into silent whispers in back rooms.
No… I have decided who I will vote for, and I will do so if that person is nominated.Â But I will do it only because they are the best of the one that are offered, and the offerings are might lean these days.
Seriously… I wish John Stewart would run.Â At least then the race would be interesting.
