Time for me to start thinking about filling in my absentee ballot and sending it in.

The Presidential race, as crazy as it is nationally, seems even more over the top here in Minnesota. Nine tickets for the office of President and Vice-President in Minnesota? Really!?

From the top:

Donald J. Trump and Michael R. Pence - No way I'm going to vote for this con man. Ever.

Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine - Probably not as progressive as I'd like, but more progressive than she stated out, and head and shoulders and trunk above all of the other tickets on the ballot.

Darrell Castle and Scott Bradley - another person who believes the separation of Church and State doesn't apply to his church.

Dan R. Vacek and Mark Elworth, Jr - you have to have positions on more than "Marijuana should be legal".

Alyson Kennedy and Osborne Hart - probably progressive enough, but I wouldn't know, as their web page made it too difficult to get their positions in a font large enough for these old eyes to read.

Jill Stein and Howie Hawkins - I like some of her positions; I find some of her positions abhorrent; I'm unwilling to risk putting the Man With the Tiny Hands into office.

"Rocky" Roque De La Fuente and Michael Steinberg - Not enough "there" there to get my vote.

Evan McMullin and Nathan Johnson - Looks to me like another warmed-over Republican peddling warmed-over ideas that haven't worked in the last 30 to 40 years, and are unlikely to start working now.

Gary Johnson and William Weld - A Republican posing as a Progressive.

I feel like I should actually do more analysis; I can't actually force myself to follow through.
