We're nearing the denouement of a pretty nasty little mayoral race here in Hoosieropolis. I'd originally determined to cast my vote for the wookie, Chris Bowen, but the Democrat challenger has almost convinced me to vote (R) purely out of spite.
Her campaign came out of the corner head-butting and eye-gouging and hasn't thrown a punch above the belt since. It didn't help that, being the challenger, her ads started much earlier than his, and she apparently has quite a big war chest. The result is that for several months now the morning TeeWee has been full of commercials accusing the current mayor of actively running businesses out of town and sneaking around at night, setting fires at orphanages.
The few commercials Melina Kennedy has actually run about her own positions all tend to show that she's strongly in favor of improving things over which the mayor has no control. I'm half-expecting her next commercial to either point out that, if elected, she will fight to stop nuclear proliferation, or that Mayor Greg Ballard is still refusing to curtail the menace of Nazis on the moon.
