The best commentary you'll read anywhere about the condition of this country ...

"Mene, Mene, Tekel, Peres"

To those who think that today's so-called "Super Tuesday" primary elections actually means something: Feh!

American politics is being told to pick between two separate cages of howler monkeys that are throwing handfuls of dung at each other.

Unless you are absolutely, beyond all doubt, convinced of a candidate's worthiness to earnestly serve you in office, do yourself a favor and don't bother to vote today if you're in one of the primary states. Save your gas and money.

Because the fact of the matter is, America is so screwed-up by this point that the outcome of the election won't make any difference.

Do you mean "Mene mene tekel upharsin"?
It's the handwriting on the wall...

Either form is acceptable. It can also be spelled "Parsin". "Peres" denotes a unit of measure and both "Upharsin" and "Parsin" do also but in the context of the story there's a play on words because it also meant that the Persians were coming.

Chris,

I agree with you that there is no hope for this country. However I will vote simply as my civic duty.

I frequently vote 3rd party or write-in simply as a protest of the two party monster that controls this country.
