Better to pee on the lawn than vote third party

Since we don't shy away from the "p" word around here, this tidbit of American psychosis caught my attention.

Very recently, Jesse Ventura, professional wrestler, hardcore governor and scion of deep dark secrets, dropped by the View for a chat.

The conversation went something like this:

Jesse: America, take a good look at your beloved Republicans and Democrats. They're nothing but hideous space reptiles!

Whoopi: But what are we going to do about it? Protest? Call someone? Pee on the lawn?

Jesse: Vote for a third party candidate!

Joy: What! Throw my vote away?

Oh er, wait. That's not exactly right. You know how it is when you see something that was exactly like something else you saw once before? Kind of like when Neo saw the black cat, then he saw the black cat again and they all knew something had gone horribly wrong?

Like this: (starting about 3:30 but it's all good)

(start about 7:06, but it's all good)

That Simpson's episode ran 15 years ago. Reminds me of the old saying, 'the more things change the more they stay the same.'

What's the half-life of freedom?
