election cynicism

2000-10-04 17:47:25+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

Trying to be cynical but unable to keep up: I listened to a bit of the presidential debates last night while prepping for my evening's socializing. I'm really glad that California is heavily Gore, because I'd rather see him elected, but I'd have trouble choosing him over Bush. It completely reinforced my opinion that the Republocrats and Demicans value the illusion of work over solutions. My fear is that that whack-job Nader, who is as distasteful to me as Buchanan, seems to be popular as a protest, and is going to garner an unreasonable amount of support from people who haven't investigated what he really stands for. I find it interesting that mainstrem media are only paying attention to the seriously whacko third party alternatives.

Hey! Don't forget Browne...

Oh, Browne is who I'll be voting for, but I figure anyone reading Flutterby already knows about him.

I went and checked out the Buchanan website. Beyond the amusing title, "Buchanan Foster home", which almost ranks up there with the Bush and Dick campaign, that dude is way scary.
