Article of the week. Wait, no, month.  
Courtesy multiplexer, this one is a must read. Even if you don't usually read my news posts. Wondering how bad things really are in DC? Check it out:

Well, that's interesting. I of course get it, and would get my outrage up if I had any outrage left to give over all this gov't stuff. I think though, your facts and position in the debate lose some credibility as soon as you feel the need to drop the f-bomb.

On the other hand, it's not like civilized debate on any of the topics mentioned in the article has gotten anywhere either.

Anyway, My votes were counted long ago. Is there actually enough of an undecided at this point which this sort of thing could sway?

No one knows when the undecided vote turns decided, but the general consensus is the last month or two before an election. The end run, these days, is getting people to actually turn up and vote. People can be angry year round, but if they think it's hopeless, or they're confident in their side, they stay home. Which is goofy, but remember we're, sadly, the intelligent elite in America. So, that last month, you've *got* to convince the barely-decided and the wish-washers that *right now* they need to do something about it, because they won't get another chance to do anything big for two years.
