Voters Pissed at Incumbents

Sounds like much of the country, like me, is pissed off at most incumbent politicians. I personally am not happy with most of those who represent me regardless whether they’re federal, state or local. Perhaps the new mantra of voters will mimic a baseball umpire’s call of “your out!”

In sobering news for incumbents in Congress, the latest New York Times/CBS News poll shows that a majority of voters say their own representatives do not deserve to return to office.

With less than a week before the midterm elections, about 6 in 10 voters say it is time to give someone new a chance to represent their district in Congress, the poll found. That figure is higher than it was in 1994, when Democrats last lost control of the House of Representatives.

Unlike baseball players, who get 3 strikes and they’re out, many of the incumbent clowns have been in office for years and even decades, pulling the same crap over and over again, yet somehow getting re-elected time after time. There are evidently plenty of them who didn’t learn their lesson in 1994 and I hope we’re poised for a repeat of blast them out of office, something many of them richly deserve.

Too bad Obama isn’t running next week.
