    Sounds like the last election I didn’t vote in.

    Boy, is THAT ever the truth!

    That is where “None of the Above” would be an interesting thing to put on every ballot with a candidate.

    Lars Larson has recommended that for years.

    Seems like the biggest problem in the last few elections is that the parties always pick whom they think can win, rather than who will do the best job.

    Or is it?

    All too often it goes down like this: We’ve got a candidate with 20 years in the military, 5 in business, four in foreign service, but he’s ugly. So, since he won’t get the women’s vote, we’ll run this other guy with no experience, and he’s a jerk and a “bad boy”, so he will get that 51% that is so crucial…

    From Clinton on, that’s the way it’s gone. 80% of women voted for the best-looking candidate.

    In every election, not just presidential.

    Kind of makes a mockery of the sacrifices that Susan B. Anthony and so many others went through, eh?

    The sufferagettes are probably rolling in their graves every election.

    Have to wonder what the other 2% was thinking!

    Does that make pulling the voting booth lever an obscene gesture?

    As someone once said, wanting to win an elective office disqualifies you for the position.

    At least in America we can still vote.

    Guess I’ll change my name to “None Of The Above” and get political!

    The best candidates aren’t even politicians. But then, they aren’t a New York and New Jersey land developer, either.

    Nabuquduriuzhur, would you care to document that claim?

    There is no need for “None of the above”. If you don’t like any of the official candidates, vote with a write in. There is never a good excuse to shirk your duty to vote.
