That Civic Duty Thing. Do It.

I really hate to put it like this, because it plain sucks, but I want to see the GOP re-take the Senate. Oh, not because I think they'll do a better job - they won't - but because the media has been falling over themselves inventing excuses for why they can't/shouldn't/won't take it over. It would be extra-nice to be able to - yet again - point out the media's biased myopia.

I mean, they've been so desperate for *SOMETHING* to crucify Republicans with that they's STILL harping on the Palins in AK two solid months ago. A shouting match at a Labor Day BBQ is somehow newsworthy two months later - whereas the Veep's kid getting booted from the Navy for coke use is a page 57 blurb. Right.

And here's something to think about. For the first time in recent memory, the GOP has been able to avoid going positively batsh*t insane over either birth control, abortion, or homosexuals. The media has been waiting patiently for the next Todd Akin, and the GOP, to their credit, has refused to give them their sound bite. It's a small thing, to be sure, but it's *something*.

Remember, voting for the lesser of two evils still means that less evil has a chance at winning...

That is all.

Exercise the right four of my ever so great grandfathers fought to give you. Vote.

I did. I also had some really bad choices to make. And in some cases, I just could not vote for either major party's candidate. So I voted Libertarian in those races.

I am so looking forward to tomorrow when the political attack ads pause for a few months.

I get so tired of the same ol same ol.

Republicans: Democrats are evil, gun grabbing, socialist, Satan worshiping bastards.
Democrats: Republicans are evil, corporate toadies who want to control every aspect of other people's lives.
Libertarian: They are both right. Vote for me!!!!!

The lesser of two evils...

...is evil. I'm not playing along with this charade any more.

I voted, mixed R and L ticket. Some were for candidates, some were against candidates.

I'm with Wraith on this one. You deserve the evil you vote for.

We've already seen that a small but growing number of actual pro-liberty Repubs can keep the establishment types in line in a Dem controlled Senate. If the Repubs take it they won't have a super-majority so they will need every vote and "our guys" can exert power even in the minority of the majority.

It isn't "all or nothing" it is incremental change and a delay of the worst buying time to get enough of "our guys" in there to actually change things dramatically.

You have a point, but at least we can still VOTE... Lesser of two evils is still evil, but 'maybe' they will take notice that we the people are getting fed up with them!

All I have to say is.....Jay...you came to this state, and we ended up with a Democrat governor and now MA has elected a GOP governor.

Admit it. You did this on purpose so you would have blog fodder.

Ehhhh....spoke too soon.

Mass. is still counting. The GOP is still in the lead though.

You wish is granted

The Pubs have control over the Senate.

Now .. whatcha gonna do with it?

The ball is in your court. You have control over the vertical; you have control over the horizontal.

This should be .. interesting.
