If you're an American and a registered voter you're probably not paying a lick of attention to the mid-term elections. Not voting is soooo American. Oh, if you read this blog, you probably care. Or if you're my parents, the kind of folks who vote rain or shine because someone died so they could do so, care. But then, my parents are hardcore, 60 Minutes watching, Meet the Press watching, Chris Matthews mocking, Maddow/Olbermann/Stewart Democratic voters in a swing state. As far as they're concerned, every election is an important election. But the attitude that many have towards mid-terms are not the same.
