The Passing Parade: Tilting at windmills...

Excerpted from this post at The Passing Parade...

Time to mount the faithful Rocinante, take lance in hand and charge that windmill... The turnout in Iowa's primary election Tuesday was pretty bad. Just 11 percent of registered voters state-wide bothered themselves; in Scott County, the figure was an ever-so-slightly better 12.3 percent in an election featuring real congressional races in both parties, a gubernatorial contest in one and several legislative races. Yawn, went the voters. Understandable. The candidates on the ballot Tuesday had been tugging on our sleeves, begging attention for months.
