Every election season, like Christmas coming early, Hawaii looks forward to their Compare and Decide direct mail piece. Then they can responsibly discuss each candidate’s background and qualifications before voting. We all know to check who paid for the mailer and fully understand that the mailer will tend to favor the campaign that paid for it. That’s just a fact of modern elective politics; like the screeching bias of our local media for whatever establishment candidate they are in the tank for. Expect them to once again brand any advertising opposing their endorsed flunky to be negative, underhanded and deceptive.
This is how Hawaii has been duped into voting for the least qualified candidate year after year. But, this year, no matter who Hawaii’s voters choose, it will be guaranteed to be a horrible choice that will be disavowed by everyone in a few months (another Hawaii tradition).
