Rand Paul? (the actual Republican candidate for Senate) BAD BAD NEWS. Tea Party. Need I say more?

His opponent, Jack Conway? Proud to be endorsed by the NRA, proud to be against gay rights.

Huh, Paul is running Republican? I thought he was a Libertarian. Maybe he was....

Libertarians stopped being quite so libertarian at least semi-recently. I had fanfic friends who wanted me to vote libertarian in the 2004 election so I looked and a lot of the candidates were anti-choice and seemed to believe in men's dominion over women being an inherent property of "freedom". There were some people who seemed to be proposing an actual less government more personal responsibility kind of thing, but the majority seemed to be right-wingers who were too egregious for the mainstream Republican party.

Beyond the pale roles in elections seem to have been taken over by the Tea[bag] Party. There was a clipscene of women Tea candidates telling their opponents to "man up" recently on one of the joke-newses. I can't quite understand that except by thinking, "Tea Party == ignorance". If that's true, it should be really easy to beat them. But the polls don't bear that out.

re: OP: It really sucks when there are no good choices.

Our ballots here have space for write-in candidates. You can't get elected as a write-in without filing in advance (it's just less in advance than the people who get on the ballot), so I don't usually bother writing anything in the space. It's effectively skipping that seat on the ballot and does nothing positive except make me feel better about it.
