LOS ANGELES MAYOR FINALE….The endless Los Angeles mayoral race ends today, and I have to say that it’s not a day too soon for me. As near as I can tell, the two candidates have essentially identical policy preferences, are running for a nearly powerless office, and since I live in Orange County I don’t care about them anyway. Yet for weeks now I’ve been forced to watch their interminable attack ads, explaining ad nauseum how both of them are corrupt apparatchiks who shouldn’t be trusted with their spouses’ checkbooks, let alone the mayoralty of America’s second largest city.
Since we live in Irvine, Marian and I just laugh at these ads. If we actually lived in Los Angeles, we’d probably be thinking of slitting our wrists instead. So to all my Los Angeles readers: my condolences. Do your duty at the polls tomorrow and write in Bill Clinton or something.
