Our election night survey showed that 42 percent chose their Senate candidate because they hated the opponent more. One pre-election poll had over 70 percent willing to throw everyone out and start fresh.That about sums it up for me. My candidate lost Tuesday night, and now I'm faced with a choice, seemingly between Beelzebub and The Devil herself. So, I"ll hold my nose and vote for Cassidy, simply because I detest Landrieu. Dr. Cassidy shouldn't take my vote as assurance that I have any confidence that he'll represent me, nor as an indication that I believe he's a good pick. He's simply the less onerous of two bad picks.
We did pitch our lip-locking congressman, Vance McAllister, the rookie who ran on a family-values ticket and thoroughly embarrassed us all when he got caught swapping slobber with a staffer. Eight folks, including our congressman were in the field, and we rejected McAllister thoroughly. The lesson here is simple: we'll reject a popularly elected politician who embarrasses us, regardless of political party. Now, we've got a runoff between two yahoos I've never heard of. It's time to do my research.
