I can't imagine political campaign seasons getting any worse, but every year they do. They're like the Bizarro Olympics. And it's one area where Republicans and Democrats are equally heinous. There is absolutely no way you could tell from their campaigns alone which is the better candidate in any given race. It's a disgrace. And it's our disgrace. They wouldn't pull this shit if it didn't work. We get what we deserve. And we in Virginia must have been really naughty this year.

So after voting, I went out on the porch and drew cat bowls. Whether the Republicans or the Democrats are in power, the cats need their food and water. I need to remind myself of that.
