Election Fatigue

It was shortly under 12 months ago I was watching Democratic primary stumps and debates. At that time, I was fervently rooting for the Rev. Al Sharpton. But that fervor has waned in the ensuing time period.

This election has taken way too long and if it lasts past Nov. 3rd, I'm going to be very pissed off. Nothing reflects weakness like a country that doesn't know who its leadership is. This happened in 2000, to the glee of the wine and chocolate manufacturers. This is a different era. To project that sort of weakness is a tactical concession.

I think I've made clear that I consider Kerry to be about the most reprehensible sort of individual that a person could run in to.

What's starting to grate is the "he said," "he, said" sort of campaign that has been taking place this last several weeks, thanks, in part, to the NYT and CBS.

Read Dowd today (I don't recommend it.) She is full of so much shit, she could fertilize an organic farm for the next 10 years. It's trite, dim-witted, and, as always, completely leaves out the fact that 3,000 of our fellow citizens died at the hands of some people who swapped in their nightshirts for 3-pc. suits.

The other case is Andrew Sullivan, who turned from hand-wringing pragmatist into a full on moon bat. His endorsement of Kerry consists of mental gymnastics and truth through prisms that would take a smarter man than me to figure out. His basic point seems to be that we know Bush sucks so why not give a guy a shot who could be worlds worse than Bush. There's a snowball's chance in hell he might be the leader we need.

All of this is balderdash. The election is Tuesday, go vote, ignore people who are supposedly "smarter" than the rest of us (because they don't know shit) and cross your fingers it is a convincing electoral win.

And if you have free time, tell Maureen Dowd what an idiot she is.
