Electile Dysfunction

In honor of, or despite, election day here in the US:

It's no coincidence that Halloween is so close to election day. They're almost the same:
  • Both are about the candy-dates
  • Both cause complete strangers to knock on your door and ask you for things
  • Both feature creepy monsters
  • Everyone's glad when they're over
On the whole, I find Halloween much easier to take. At least we only have to live with the mistakes of that night for the next day, until our digestion recovers. But election results are with us for years.
