    Unless you are a sycophant all ready in thrall to a candidate (possibly have been, since last Christmas) don't go into candidate diaries.

    They will give you wonderful reasons to never vote for the candidates that they are supposed to be about - 9 times out of 10 due to comments by the diarist and their little clique.

    I can't say I never go into candidate diaries, but I go in WAY less than I used to (maybe 1 time a week now), and even when I do, it's generally to find out if the diary is as stupid as the title suggests.  They often are.

      You know, someone commented earlier that I demonstrated shocking ignorance about candidate diaries, which is no doubt true. You're making me suspect I don't even know the half of it.

      Thank you, dear sheddhead.

        Maybe you just haven't hit the really incredibly mean and amazingly hypocritical, yet.

        Those are the ones that burn my cinnamon rolls.  The ones that pretend that they are all goodness and light to be able to cut down another commenter, when they've pulled the same crap two diaries down.

        I got extremely sick of it.  And tired of thinking, "If such big losers support Candidate X (Y or Z), why should I?"  (Because Candidates X, Y or Z haven't convinced me on their own, and their followers turn me off!)
