It’s election day finally! The best part – a brief respite from political ads pointing out how much of an asshole the other guy is.

I don’t understand the point of these ads; instead of telling the voters what they want to hear (how they are going to fix our many problems) they resort to calling their opponent everything short of a radioactive pedophile who makes meatloaf out of orphaned puppies and bathes in the blood of baby seals. Kids on the playground do that kind of thing and get sent to time-out.

The government should elect itself the same way they operate – by going with the lowest bidder. Then instead of discreetly whaling on each other using genteel language, the candidates would bend over backwards trying to prove how wonderful the other person is. It’d be a nice change.
