Tomorrow is the most wonderful day in our political system -- the last day of campaigning. After tomorrow, all the signs and calls and polls stop...for about another 15 months.

This year has been pretty annoying as far as the robocalls. I still have an Atlanta area code on my cellphone (most of my clients are still there), but those crazy Florida politicians (all exempt from the Do Not Call laws) know I'm here anyway. Except I just got a call from some Sebastian Inlet pol who is 30 miles south of my district.

Worse, is the text messages. I got two texts in the middle of the night from some Christian conservative group warning that Crist and Meek will unleash gay Armageddon if they get elected. I have servers that text me when they go down and I have to reset them at all hours, so I was jolted out of sleep twice for dumb political hyperbole. I'd almost set a rule to vote for the opposite of whoever calls/texts me, except both sides have had almost equal amounts of foaming-at-the-mouth.

I'm still undecided on virtually everything except Florida's peculiar votes for adding constitutional amendments. But, I've always been a fan of Robert Heinlein's political quote:

If you are part of a society that votes, then do so. There may be no candidates and no measures you want to vote for ... but there are certain to be ones you want to vote against. In case of doubt, vote against. By this rule you will rarely go wrong.
