Midterm Elections

   Mid-term elections are approaching. It is that curious time when around one-third of the population (if we're diligent) takes time out of their day to vote. With the prospect of a DFL controlled congress, both sides have been pumping funds into the mid-term election campaigns. In my apartment, the television is on for no more than an hour a day (enough to catch “That 70's Show” and “The Simpsons”) yet I have seen plenty of smear ads come from both camps.

   As one of those strange people who believes that voting is not just a right, but a responsibility, I have made an effort to gather information on as many candidates as I can (it gets hard when you get to some of the lesser known local offices). Hence, when I see these smear ads I often laugh at the tactics used by the various candidates. I've seen both sides accuse the other side of “planning to raise taxes” or take some other statement and twist it out of context. I won't get into the messy details, but I'll suffice to say that it provides Coda and I with a good deal of entertainment. Coda is one of those home raised Republican voters. He states that he does vote based on the individual candidates, “but only during the [Republican] primaries.”

   My hope is that, if you are voting, you will at least take a quick look at the candidates before you cast your ballot (if you have access to the Internet, which I'll assume is the case, you probably have access to more information than you need).

   With that said, here are some entertaining Daily Show links:
