My dilemma as a voter

The choice I would like to have is between the Democratic Party as a representative of wage-earners and the Republican Party as a representative of the property-owning middle class.

The choice I do have is between the Obama administration as a representative of the Washington-Wall Street establishment and the Republican Party as a representative of the lunatic fringe.

My dilemma as a voter is that there is no way to keep the Republicans out of office except to vote for the Democrats, and no way to vote against the Democrats without bringing the Republicans into office.

Hence the “enthusiasm gap.”
