NY Primaries

Dropped Madge off at her school this morning. Nothing new there. But today is the day of the primaries here and there were people passing out flyers.
What confidence these politicians have in the workings of the democratic electoral system as we have it here.
I’m not sure, if I were a politician, that I’d want my constituents to be the kind of people that show up at the polls undecided and are swayed by the force of a leaflet, a t-shirt with a slogan, and several very persuasive pins.
Maybe that’s why I’m not a politician.
