From the New York Times:

“Mr. Bush is now viewed unfavorably by 45 percent of respondents, compared with 43 percent who view him favorably. Mr. Kerry is now viewed unfavorably by 44 percent of the respondents, compared with 39 percent who view him favorably.”

And yet one of these people will get the job. Guaranteed.

This is democracy?

It’s like being forced to choose between Coke and Pepsi, when what you really wanted was a tractor.

Let’s hope the electorate chooses the lesser of the two evils. And then questions the validity of a system in which only two parties, with almost identical corporation-wooing neoclassical economic and social policies, are serious contenders for the contract.

And then, Britain, let’s do the same.
