This is the last election-related post, I promise.
I went to vote this morning. It was an experience in utter futility.
There were five contests on the ballot -- President/VP, Congressman, State Assembly, State Senate and local judges.
Congressman -- the only real choice was Anthony Weiner. The Republicans didn't put up a candidate.
State Senate -- the only choice was the Republican. The Democrats didn't put anyone up.
State Assembly -- the only choice was the Democrat. The Republicans didn't put anyone up.
Local Judges -- the same eight people ran on both lines.
President/VP -- there I had a choice. But then again, I live in New York, so it really doesn't matter anyway.
So, why the heck did I even bother going?
