    There is also blatant Republican-directed voter suppression commencing in Virginia, Florida (shocking), and various other states.

    This is just a question for Violet, if she sees this. I’ve vacillated back and forth this entire year whether or not to vote 3rd party on the principle that Romney is evil, Obama has been sometimes comically bad, and that indicating you don’t like what’s on offer has some value. But, although I don’t like the way “progressives” yell at me when they make this argument, I am sympathetic to the argument that if I do that, maybe in some small way I am letting a douchebag like Romney in. Unlike lots of people who seem very certain about it, I’m not. What say you? I’m also in Virginia, getting harangued by phone and door by OFA types. I’d really appreciate your take (long or short) on this since I’ve liked your site ever since ’08. Either way, thanks!

    Well, I knew I should have voted early. I don’t look forward to standing in grotesquely long lines and arguing with poll workers as to whether or not I’m eligible to vote in the district I’ve been registered in for 6 years. It’s also curious to me that the so-called “liberal” media devoted thrice the column inches to ACORN in 2008 as they did to poll tax-style ID laws, voting machine tampering, the willful destruction of voter registration forms and the refusal to count provisional ballots this year. It’s Orwell’s dystopia come true, manifested through a bargain-basement Rovian media who sacrifices their JOB of elucidating facts and truths for sharing gut feelings and demonstrating the media owners’ ever-rightward marching partisanship.

    (I used to work in journalism. Then, I got into this industry, which is awful for its own set of reasons.)
