From Marc McDonald at BeggarsCanBeChoosers.com:
As many pundits have noted, this has been one of the most wacky and bizarre political campaign seasons in decades. And I sometimes wonder if we’ve ever faced an election where the voters were less informed on the issues, and the candidates, than they are today.
I recall reading once about the early days of television. The great TV pioneer Philo Farnsworth, among others, had high hopes for the new medium.
