Presidential Election Year

We're smack dab in the middle of an Election Year, and I couldn't be more pissed off about it. I hate this. Four years is not enough time to get over the last one. EVERYONE panders, distorts, attacks, and, worst of all, they are all extremely careful about what they say because they are afraid of offending anyone. What can we do about it? I'm not sure, but getting rid of all the pols, handlers, and "experts" would be a good start. Both conventions this year were a huge snore.

However, there are some informative sites out there, if Presidential Elections are your thang. Using "thang" instead of "thing" just gave me a wonderful idea, why don't we handle this the same way they do Beauty contests? After all, there isn't all that much of a difference. We would start with a Thong contest. If they want to be President that bad, they can parade on a stage wearing nothing but a Thong.

Back to the informative sites.

The University of Virginia has an excellent site that maps out both the popular and electoral votes. The best part, is that the maps are teal and green, instead of the overdone Red and Blue.

The Library of Congress also has a site that, while geared toward a younger audience, has some very good information about the structure and history of Presidential Elections.
