A special election. A senate race run-off. Two dreary old white guys running. Yawn. I’ve got better things to do.
Apparently this was the attitude of a lot of young voters who flocked to the polls to elect Barack Obama president. True, McCain did win in Georgia, but not by anywhere near the margin Saxby Chambliss had in his senate run-off. When there’s nobody vibrant, exciting and glamorous running, the party that needs the votes of young, shallow people with short attention spans suffers.
Now if only Al Franken can not manage to steal the election in Minnesota, I will be well and truly satisfied.
