I'm sick of being accused of being a Democrat just because I seldom support a Republican candidate or a given Republican cause. In many races, I've voted for the Democratic candidate because of the "lessor of two evils" situation - anything to ensure that a certain inane Republican candidate doesn't get the office. The worst example was Gore 2000. I was not a Gore fan, but I think we now can be pretty sure there is no way he could have been worse than Bush/Cheney - so I'm proud of that vote. Unfortunately, that particular inane Republican candidate did get the office - and now the country and world is far worse off because of it.
The Democrats are incompetent and the Republicans are criminals. What are we supposed to do?
