This is just a rant. Nothing more. And for those of you that don't live in Massachusetts it really won't mean much to you. We are having a special election in MA tomorrow to fill the Senate seat left vacant by the death of Ted Kennedy (may he rest in peace).
TOMORROW CAN'T COME SOON ENOUGH!!!!!!!
Never, ever, EVER in all of my voting years do I think we have endured such an obnoxious campaign. First off, both candidates suck!!! In my opinion neither are worthy of filling Senator Kennedy's seat. But that aside, for the last month every. flippin. commercial. has been one of them bashing the other. It wasn't even this bad during the Presidential elections. And if the constant barrage of ads on TV and radio weren't enough, the phone rings day and night with recorded messages of why we should vote for one or the other. Or it is some special interest group taking a poll. Or just some backwoods hick that is clearly not even from MA trying to pursuade us to vote one way or the other.
If anything, all this incessant self-promotion has done has made me dislike both candidates even more. Voting is tomorrow and I haven't got a clue who to vote for because I can't stand either one. They both, even the one that represents the party that I am a part of, want to do things that I don't agree with. So what to do? Choose the lesser of two evils?
Jerry Garcia once said, "Choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil."
Hmm. Be glad you don't live in MA tomorrow...
