I don’t know the answer to Justin’s question of whether last night’s senate debate in Nevada will swing the election, but I did watch the entire debate in stunned, silent horror. Some saw a clear-cut outcome. For me, it was all I could do to write this open letter of sincere condolence to our unfortunate fellow citizens facing this decision in Nevada:
Dear People of Nevada,
I just watched your Senate debate, and I am just so… so… sorry. I feel so bad for you. I mean – WTF?? Look, I don’t know how this happened, but you really should try and avoid choices like this in the future.
What to do? If you want to vote None Of The Above, I get it. It is a tempting, some might even say – right choice under the circumstances. But for those of you willing to “man up” and make a decision – lets take a clear eyed look at your options.
There is a real difference. You can choose between a lightweight incompetent, or a craven, duplicitous, heavyweight partisan hack incompetent. Neither is going to be good for Nevada. You should consider what is best for the country. Obama is going to be President for the next six years. My advice – take one for the team and vote for the lightweight. It is the only way to limit the damage. I’m sorry – it is just the right thing to do. Look, it’s only six years. In 2016 you can vote for a new Senator and President. Try to give yourself better choices next time.
Your Friend, MW
