Amen to that Brother Robot!
As I sit here this morning, with my fresh cup of hot coffee, Elixir of Life, I am struck by my annoyance this year with Election Day.
I have always been a believer of the hype.
You know the hype - 'Your vote counts!'
And, I still believe it does, and I am appalled by the fact that some 40% of people who could vote today won't, but will be plenty vocal about their unhappiness with this or that in the government.
I have always felt, if you didn't vote, then shut the heck up.
But, this Election Day, I just can't wait for it to be over.
The phone calls, the mailings, the commercials...
Please... just... stop.
The negative ads and the resultant mudslinging has been horrific!
Newsflash: I already know why he or she sucks! WHY should I vote for you? What do you stand for or against?
Ugh. Today and tonight, it ends. The NJ Senatorial race has been ugly. I think I know who will win. I mean, one candidate is under investigation for the 5th or 6th time in his career, but finally this time by the Feds.
Makes it a no-brainer for me.
Being in the NY/NJ/CT Tri-State area we are lucky enough to get to see NY and CT's ugly campaign ads too. Joy.
The only one not slinging mud in those elections was Senator Hillary Clinton, who is going to be re-elected in a landslide as she was basically running uncontested.
NY Comptroller race? Ugly. CT Senatorial race? Super Ugly!
I can't wait for it to end. I have Tivo, and I don't even get stuck watching all the commercials and I am sick of it!
Today, is the day. All the idiots, good and bad, almost all mudslingers, will be counted. Amen to that.
Aren't I just a ray of sunshine this morning? I guess I need more coffee! lol
