Tuesday = Election Day

I will be *SO* glad when it's Wednesday.

It's been horrendous watching any little bit of tv over the past month, especially the past few weeks: as soon as it's time for commercials, they've been nothing except smear ads against other candidates! X would "seriously consider raising taxes"! Y has ties to the mob! Z was best friends with the disgraced governor! B supports illegal immigrants! C supports banning books by Dr Seuss! D is in cahoots with the NRA! etc etc etc.


Anyways, for those who will be voting tomorrow, here's something to keep in mind:


  1. Fairy tail indeed: "If elected, I promise...". I guess that, skin deep, politicians are the same the world over.
    Good thing there's no "smear campaign" as such in Switzerland. The media gets excited, depending on which party line they want to support, and some make hints, others, like the populist SVP (racist...) do make clear inflammatory statements that do seem to find their mark in many of the swiss.
    Bad days ahead for us all.

  2. You are not alone! I do not even have a tv and the ads are driving me crazy (on the radio)!


Dear legitimate commenters: all comments are welcome! My sincere apologies for making you go through the word verification hurdle, tho.

Dear spammers: please don't bother... I'm just gonna delete any spam that squeaks through word verification anyway, so why not save us both the trouble, eh?
