I heard there’s an election Tuesday. I wish somebody had told me sooner so I could have done a little research. I’ll need to find out about the candidates (two guys, I bet) and see if they differ on any major issues. How different can they be? I just wish there was more television coverage, maybe an article or two in the newspaper. It’s as if the media had no idea we’re going to elect a president.
Would that there were more political ads; that would help. Maybe some mudslinging. The campaigns must be low on money this go-round. And who are their running mates? Why haven’t we heard anything about them? I feel woefully unprepared. My plan: go into the voting booth and exercise my democratic right to wing it.
