Well, I voted this morning.
As I said to the sign toting campaigners at the 75-foot perimeter:
"This is the first time in my life that I have not felt proud to vote."
I have voted in every election, national and local, since I was eligible to vote. Never have I witnessed such a despicable campaign (or should I say cam-PAIN) at the state level. I have, at times, felt I had to choose between the "lesser of two evils", but this year, even that description doesn't do justice to the choice. In the past, choosing the lesser of two evils was more about the issues and the ability of the candidates. This year, even the "good guys" stooped to the lowest common denominator -viciously attacking opponents on anything and everything but the issues.
Talk about BULLYING! These people we are electing to be senators, representatives, governors are the worse role models. Even schoolyard bullies have less culpability. What ever happened to decorum, civility, dignity? I don't think any of these people deserve to be representing our interests or the state we live in.
I'm disgusted with the lot of them.
