Democracy At Its Best
A Chicago voter is less than thrilled with the political slate for which he's voting today.
Dave Schuler is less than thrilled with the political slate for which he’s voting today:
For Senate I have a choice between one candidate who’s lied to puff up his resume and another whose only credential appears to be that he’ll be a loyal foot soldier.
For governor I have a choice between an incumbent who’s rather apparently beyond his depth in the job and a challenger who won’t say how he’ll accomplish the ambitious goals he’s laid out and has expressed some views on a variety of subjects that differ too much from my own.
For Congressional representative I have the choice between the incumbent and a challenger I’ve never heard of who as best as I can tell has made little effort to reach me in any fashion whatever including media adverts. I’m pretty sure I’ll vote for the incumbent because of his history of interest in ethics reform and transparency. I doubt he’ll make much headway in either area but one can always dream, can’t one?
Of course, Dave’s in Chicago. I’m pretty sure his vote’s already been counted.
