Ballot Box-Cake

November 2, 2010

Today tells the tale — the most expansive midterm election in US history as all sorts and sizes of political entities are crowding the ballot box.
And to make the entire situation nearly bat-shit-crazy with electoral chaos, all 435 seats in the House of Representatives are up for the vote, with Republicans needing to have a net gain of 40 to take control, while in the Senate, 37 of 100 seats are to be decided — and many names on the ballot are nuttier-than-a-fruitcake.

Here in California, it’s Prop 19 and Moonbeam vs Lady MacBeth — stoned, yet?

Millions and millions of dollars — probably the most expesive election ever, and just the midterms — after the US Supreme Court okayed the Koch brothers to donate untold trillions to anybody that’s running against climate change, end of war, for slavery.

And I don’t think apathy is any kind of a problem.
This could be a history-making event:

Dr. Michael McDonald, who tracks election turnout at George Mason University, projects that a record-breaking 90 million people will cast ballots for 2010 candidates, the largest number of voters to date in a midterm election.

We’ll just have to wait and see — does sanity win out over witchcraft and the Aqua Buddha?
