It's nearing Election Time again.

I don't know why, but I seem to have the most rant-like things to say during election years. Especially Presidential election years. Maybe it's because I tend to despise both candidates equally, and in the end vote for the lesser of two evils.

Luckily, this election cycle there's actually a candidate whom I like on the ballot: Ron Paul.

But that's neither here nor there. I live in Mississippi these days, and yesterday was an Election Day here. So, the Clarion Ledger is here to provide the results of this election (11/06/2007) which caused me to be fifteen minutes or so late to work.

What saddens me the most about those election results are all those "Noncontested Elections." I mean what is up with that? Couldn't they drag someone up who would have been happy to run for that particular office? I mean couldn't the Democrats find someone on Welfare to run for State Senate District 14? It would have served two purposes, given the voters an actual choice, and possibly gotten someone off the welfare roles. Similar annoyances apply to the Republicans and State Senate District 13. And a whole bunch of other elections as well.

It's a sad state of affairs.
