They're everything people hate about politics, completely dreary party hacks with zero personal appeal, and I'd rather be locked in a never-ending police ride-along with Amiri Baraka and Mark Holmberg than hear either of their names ever again (and I do wish they'd both stop robot-calling me). I will be voting, but only out of a severely overgrown sense of civic duty.

Tough stuff...but probably not uncommon. Then there's this:

Is Terry Kilgore's mustache running? Now THERE's a candidate I could get behind.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle
