      The Election Coverage Continues:

      There's a lot of excitement over the upcoming erections. Anticipation is
      building as the candidates, whether handshaker, stumper, aspirant, or
      petitioner, erect their campaigns to wind up number one. The long, hard
      climb to the presidency is always met with stiff competition. Only men of
      firm resolve are able to overcome the thrusts and jabs of the national
      political process. Opposing candidates, slinging mud and charging full-tilt,
      with their lances outstretched, surely test the rigidity of their resolve.
      No modern candidate can win the race with flaccid intentions or limp values.


      Almost as important are their organizations; every one hanging with the
      candidate must come to attention when their man speaks. Every John, Thomas,
      and Willy must hold fast on every issuance of their favorite, to make sure a
      repeat of Florida's 2000 electile dysfunction does not take place. Indeed,
      sometimes it does get dirty; attacks on the other hopefuls with monikers
      like "senate snake" or "ward weasel", do little to find the best grain in
      the wood of the hopefuls. If things get too out of hand, an investigation of
      congress may be instigated to probe the slippery, crooked and underhanded
      tactics employed by those less moral. But most Americans believe the
      candidates should be solid shafts of upright morality in these dangerous
      times.

      Drawing straws is not the erectoral process in America, the tool for freedom
      is the vote, and the meat of our republic is the office-holder. So beat it
      to your polling place, toss in your vote, whether for L, D, or R, (or G, C,
      T, etc.), and stand tall for your candidate. Or, if you don't agree with the
      ethos of voting, you are free to go hide in a corner and... well, I suppose
      the difference it will make is about the same.

      [Phil's ego, head hung in shame that the state of American politics has led
      the writing id to such a debased state of cheap humor. One would hope he
      had a better head than... Damn!]

        Don't Think About it

        Go ahead, take another sip of eggnog, don't think about the millions around
        the world forced to gulp down socialism as if it were some sort of magic
        tonic. Please, tear into that wonderful turkey, don't think about the taxes
        and fees ripped from the wallets of the regular, honest, decent folk. That's
        right, the star goes a little to the left, don't think about those wandering
        around with wool over their eyes, placed there by teachers and professors
        with misplaced trust. Sure, that Santa tie looks real smart around your
        neck, don't think about the multitudes strangled by onerous regulations.
        Make sure you're not late for the party, don't think about the millions of
        our dollars wasted by political party hacks and rent seeking rats. Gosh,
        your front yard is wonderfully displayed with exterior illumination, don't
        think about how 216 December 23rds have come and gone since the land for the
        National Seat was ceded (and we all know another name for "seat" don't we).
        For those so inclined, enjoy your martial platitudes (do rattling sabers
        sound like silver bells?), don't think about the 60 December 23rds ago when
        Private Slovik lost hope. Make very merry this season, reading "A Visit From
        St. Nicholas" to your kids, don't think about all those politicians not
        reading the Constitution at all. Keep all that joy and happiness in your
        heart and in your life - certainly don't even *think* about letting a
        foul-mooded, scribbler-wannabe, Grinchafied moron dampen your holiday
        spirit.

        [Phil's ego, the eternal apologizer, says sorry for the "only-semi-serious,
        partially depressing, hopefully secular holiday message. And like Tiny Tim
        said, "God bless us, every effen one of us".]

        Action? What, you need an action for the week? How about we all act like
        we're civilized. Too much to ask, perhaps?
