Election shenanigans

Is it just me, or is watching politics a bit like watching a disastrous wreck? It's horrifying, there's nothing significant you can do to help, but you can't turn away. At least, that's what it's like for those who care about such things; everybody else just drives past without blinking, hardly registering the atrocity.

But speaking as one of the horrified onlookers, I'm appalled on many fronts--the candidates, the debates, the stances, the media treatment. Back in 2000 or so, one of my heroes Ralph Nader said that if people had a choice on the ballots, they'd choose "none of the above."

He wasn't far off-base.
