I'm sick of the American Presidential election. I'm sick of the mud-slinging and the sniggering behind hands and the second-guessing and the conspiracy theories and the media x-rays and the endless fucking pundits who actually haven't the first idea what they're talking about and don't care so long as they pander to the political bias of their audience.
Henceforth, if I refer to them at all, I will be referring to the candidates as `Binky' and `Bumpy,' and their running-mates as `Sid' and `Rosebud.' I don't care which combination of them gets elected, or indeed whether any of them gets elected. Fuck 'em all. I just want it to be over.

Think how I feel. I've been eligible to vote for twenty years, and for the first time, I've stopped caring. I'll still get out and vote, mostly because we've got a good crop of new people in Texas state elections who deserve the posts, but I can't wait until it's over.

At least if you vote in local elections you get candidates who're dealing with local issues and you can choose the one who claims they will do the best for your area. Binky and Bumpy aren't even in the same dimension as Texas any more, unless it suits them.
