There's an upcoming election for Florida's governor, and this leads to all TV ads being one of two things:

1. "Democrat candidate says she is against wasteful spending and corruption, and accuses Republican candidate of it, but she wasted X amount of money doing bla bla, and did corrupt thing Y."

2. Republican candidate says he is against wasteful spending and corruption, and accuses Democrat candidate of it, but he wasted X amount of money doing bla bla, and did corrupt thing Y."

It's the classic "Kang or Kodos" voting situation as usual, and makes me feel like I should run for something-or-other as an independent in some future election. My campaign message would be "the other candidates claim to be against corruption, but they do all the corrupt things their opponent accuses them of. I will only be half as corrupt as they are! Obviously I still want something out of this position of power, and I'm going to exploit it, and you - all the elected politicians do. But I will exploit you less than all the other options do. Vote Raven for something-or-other 2014."
