Is It November 5th Yet?

I don't care who you are... with which party you align yourself... I'm TIRED of talk about primaries, delegates, superdelegates, candidates, and political commercials.

It's not that I don't care about the election. I do! And I exercise my right to vote. Maybe it's simply that I made up my mind a while back about my voting preference, and I'm just impatient to get it over with.

Or maybe it's just that I'm grumpy and sick of hearing of it all.

Great White North Friends, back me up here. One of your fellow nationals told me that Canada has a law about campaign publicity restrictions... something like no more than 4 or 5 months before the elections? Is that about right? As with everything else in the US, I think we just let things get a little out of hand.

But that's just me.

Nope, not just you. I already know who I'm voting for, even if that person doesn't make it onto the ballot.

Mostly I'm just eager for both parties to choose their candidates. My original choice is long since out of the race, so now I want to hear debates between the candidates from each party.

It's an American epidemic - take something of interest and shove it in every citizen's face until everybody is so sick of it that they just don't care anymore, no matter how important it may be.

I never got this about American politics - when you campaign to be a candidate are you not just beating down on your own party? Wouldn't it make more sense for the party to pick a candidate and then you can go hammer and tongs at the other guy without alienating your own potential support base? It would also mean a shorter lead up which i think everyone would be in favour of!

Yes there is such a law in Canada (thank God for little favors!) and I really don't know how you guys handle it - I'm already fed up of hearing about it and I'm not even in the States!!
