Seeing as it is Nov. 4 and this year that date signifies more than still-recovering-from-Halloween-debauchery, I figured I’d jump on the bandwagon and offer up my somewhat-obligatory Election Day post.
And after nearly two years – more or less – of presidential discussion and government mumbo-jumbo, I’d like to inform you all that I am, unfortunately, still fairly politically uninclined. While I took a more vested interest in this particular election year than I have in any other beforehand – albeit, this is only my second presidential election year of voting eligibility – I can bet all $42 in my wallet right now that come Thursday, the amount of political news I read will once again be nonexistant.
Considering the fact that I did, somehow/somewhat, move from a relatively uninformed voter – basing my decision on solely the abortion issue – to a more-knowledgeable ballot-caster, those who I have argued with about their decision to support the McCain/Palin ticket, including my own mother last night, would probably be surprised that I’m still rather apathetic in my political views. After all, once this election is decided – hopefully as I peacefully slumber this evening – I have little to no basis for voicing my opinions anyway as I truly care little for the government forums. Perhaps in another four years, when another vital decision rears its head, I’ll again delve into this world, but for now, I suppose I’m happy to leave it behind.
I could sit here and discuss my aggravation for people’s ignorance in calling Obama a “Muslim” despite his Christian beliefs; I can complain about how various campaign signs have been needlessly vandalized; I might even attempt to explain my disdain for the McCain/Palin ticket, which only half derives from the vice presidential candidate’s stupidity.
But instead, I’m simply going to bid this election season farewell and cross my fingers that the Democratic party takes over following the last eight years of complete and utter disastrous leadership. If the Washtington Redskins’ demise last night – 23-6, losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers – is any indication, a change of party power is definitely in order (visit http://tinyurl.com/65mzhv for additional information).
Obama/Biden ‘o8 for the win.
