    It is already decided, no matter what the trolls say about it.

    Obama 52%, willard 47%, Wankers 1% write in candidates.

    The problem isn’t the wankers it’s the fools voting Democrat.

    On editorialcartoonists.com, the word a**hole was used instead of wankers. Does gocomics.com think we’re a bunch of children?

    Considering Ted’s politics most closely match the Green Party candidate, it looks like he’s putting himself firmly in the Wankers category.

    Probably, and with some of the comments like this one from narrowminded: “The problem isn’t the wankers it’s the fools voting Democrat.” There is good reason to think that some of the posters are a bunch of children.

    Come on, Ted. There is a huge difference between independent voters and the so called undecided. One group chooses not to affiliate with a political party, the other can’t be bothered to give a #$% about the nation’s future.

    Who mentioned independent voters? This is a swipe at (a) the outsized influence of swing voters and (b) the idea that anyone would still be confused about what to do this November. The choices are very, very clear.

    But I thought that a “wanker” was a . . . .

    Panel #3 of this cartoon tells the whole story. The candidates pander to the least informed voters.
    .
    Independent voters in NY state are essentially disenfranchised because we can’t vote in primaries where all real electoral decisions are made. So I vote for third parties in the futile hope that one day long after I’m dead and gone …
    .
    Oh hell. Who am I kidding? We won’t just be a de facto plutocracy by then. We’ll be a total bona fide plutocracy.

    You did. Want us to change that to “Undecided”?

    On Rall’s page it’s that way, too (NOT “wankers”)!
    So, I guess this site is for kids.

    I guess my point is this … if you don’t want to register as a Democrat in Harlem, you are stuck with Charley Rangel because the only chance you have to get rid of him is in the primary. This year, Rangel was in a competitive race for the first time since he went to congress. The “real” election was the primary. Game over. Rangel can go sit on the beach in the DR and chill until he’s mindlessly voted back into office.
    .
    What NY state should do is allow open primaries. Being forced to register with a party in order to vote in the primary is as wrong as all the dumb voter ID laws out there.
    .
    But thanks for the thoughtful insight. Appreciate it.

    Hardly. The choices are clear: one should boycott the election. But it’s also obvious that no one should have trouble choosing between the candidates, if that’s how you roll.
