A plague on both your houses

By Owen Paine on Friday May 19, 2006 12:27 PM

The Washington Post tells us:
A new Washington Post-ABC News poll found that 55 percent of those surveyed said they are inclined to look around for someone new rather than support their incumbent members of Congress this fall, the highest level of anti-incumbency since the 1994 midterm elections that dethroned Democrats on Capitol Hill.
Likely voters hate incumbents of both parties -- and with good reason, of course. But rarely do we hear this simple unifying explanation -- more and more average-type folks see our present two party system as one big collusive sack of shit.

So where are the independent candidates? Why ain't third party-type thangs happening?

Cliché wisdom is in order here -- it's always quietest before the storm.
