I don’t know what I can say that hasn’t already been said by pundits, analysts, moderately more active bloggers than I, and comedians around the world. We’re fucked.
Looking at the candidates for the Republican nomination for President is like sifting through the broken and discarded fragments of reject crayons in a pre-K arts and crafts classroom. Sure, there appear to be a few bright and shining colors lurking amongst the rancid baby food greens and doodoo browns, but on closer inspection even these turn out to be nothing more than useless stubs of tapioca mauve hiding inside a day glow cyan wrapper.
Today is the day you get to make your voice heard. If you’re feeling disillusioned with the presidential politics and all the noise on both sides, remember that your local elections are also today and are equally—if not far more—important. I don’t care who you vote for, I just want you to get out and vote.
