    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    @mikefive & dtriedelAnd you would both be right. Strange standards.

    By the way, Ted, I’m not alone when I say I appreciate you dropping in. I also think “wankers’” is funnier than “a-holes” anyway.

    “I thought wanking was a brit self-pleasuring.”In this specific instance, you thought correctly. Rall, however, is using the term wanker, which is used as a derogative similar to calling someone a jerk-off.

    When it comes to war, I’d say that Rall is more like Ron Paul than any of the candidates. (Sorry Ted.)

    Gore flushed anyone who’d follow Ralph Nader down the toilet by making an electoral gambit — trading that bloc for Joe Lieberman’s finger-wagging and neoconservatism. It wasn’t Nader’s fault. All he did was try to re-enfranchise some voters.
