OH, YOU KNOW YOU WERE THINKING IT, TOO
Well, my friends…the deadline to get independent presidential candidates on the Texas ballot was May 8th, and in many other states around the nation, that deadline has either already passed or is coming up very soon. Which means it’s too late now for any new candidates to file.
Put more bluntly, it means we’re screwed in `08.
I don’t mean to be a party-pooper, a bummer, a drag, a hope-smasher, or naysayer, but — it’s time we all faced reality at this point. So here `tis:
Without ballot access, we’re screwed. And we ain’t got it.
We are left now to choose from three (soon to be two, if those silly pillow-fighting Dems ever make up their minds) sitting U.S. Senators at a time when Congressional approval ratings are at an all-time low. And yet, quite incredibly, these are our choices.
For those still seeking alternatives this election year, well…you’re screwed!
There’s always Ralph Nader, Cynthia McKinney, Ron Paul (should he decide to run third-party), the Green and Libertarian party candidates, of course, if you are lucky enough to have them appear on the ballot in your state. If they’re not allowed on your ballot, well…you’re screwed!
What about Robert F. Kennedy Jr., you ask? Barring a miracle, or an offer from Senators Clinton or Obama to come on the Democratic ticket as a Vice Presidential running mate, it looks like Mr. Kennedy won’t be going to Washington. At least not this year.
Which only underscores the fact that, well…we’re screwed in `08.
But look on the bright side (you mean there is one?): if you’re going to walk into the voting booth this November to cast a vote for the lesser of two evils, at least you can look good doing it. If you are not allowed to vote your conscience, you can wear it on your sleeve…or your chest, as the case may be.
THE MUST-HAVE TEE OF THE 2008 ELECTION SEASON
A political tee that is non-partisan. Let’s be honest here.
