Rubes Cartoons - Tales from a Twisted Mind
Same Old Song and Dance
Oct 09, 2010
Well here we are again. Is it already time for another election? Yes, in just a few a weeks we have the opportunity to cast our votes for the next governor of the Golden State. No more “Governator.” The race is between a career politician (a former governor, mayor and current attorney general of the state) and the former head of a hugely successful online auction company. My wife’s cousin ran as an independent in the primary last June and received one percent of the vote, which wasn’t bad considering he was operating on a shoestring. (Not literally of course, though he is a doctor and could operate if necessary). Considering what the auction lady has spent so far (140 million and counting) my wife’s cousin did pretty well if you were to calculate the “cost per vote.” Elections are good for the economy, that is if you figure just how many advertising dollars are spent in the state. Maybe we should hold elections every year....Ha! Ha!...Just kidding!!!
Is it my imagination or do politicians tell us what we want to hear? More jobs, lower taxes, better schools, safer streets, blah, blah, blah. As usual, it’s just the same old song and dance.
