Election year saturation

I'm so done.

I didn't bother to watch the last Presidential debate last night (not that I watched any of the others). I hang up on any automated telephone call/message that promotes a candidate or ballot proposition (not that I listened to them before). I walk by political volunteers camped outside the grocery store (not that I'm planning on registering to vote as a Democrat). I don't read the signs, I throw away the fliers, I ignore the commercials . . . and I don't feel guilty at all.

Why? Well, because:
One thing California does right is the availability of permanent "vote-by-mail" status. It's like an absentee ballot, but I don't have to request one for every election. I filled my ballot out, dropped it in the mail - and now I get to pretend that all this hullabaloo is done and over with. At least until next time . . .

here's to doing your civic duty and wishing everyone else would vote early too so the commentary and commercials and predictions and "magic" maps and pundits would just go away - 12 days and counting
