Quote of the Day – Lesser of Two Evils Edition

In politics, you don’t always get good choices.  It’s not a game for people who prefer things to be black and white, and the choices to be easy. – Sebastian

That is the problem we too often run into in politics. I worked a lot of hours for McCain, who I am not really all that fond of, because he was the better choice. You can call it the lesser of two evils if you want, but the reality is that you are not going to find anyone you agree with completely. You are probably going to have something you need to hold your nose over when you pull that lever (or punch out that chad, or whatever.) The point is that in almost every election there is a candidate who, on the whole, represents your position better than the others. Sometimes that stinks, but that is the system we have. And it has worked pretty well overall.
