Well, the election is almost here, and I've pretty much heard every candidate's mudslinging commercials. So let me see if I have it all straight.

We can't vote for Todd Lally because he says Social Security is a Ponzi scheme.

We can't vote for John Yarmuth because he usually votes with Nancy Pelosi.

We can't vote for Baron Hill because we already fired him once.

We can't vote for Todd Young because he called Southern Indiana "the middle of nowhere."

We can't vote for Jack Conway because he's a wealthy liberal who's so out of touch with Kentucky that he actually owns horses.

And we can't vote for Rand Paul because he was linked with the Aqua Buddha nearly three decades ago.

Doesn't leave many choices, does it?

The problem is, it's critical that we do make choices. And the only way we can do that is to make the effort to cut through all the negative nonsense and really examine the candidates to see who stands for something we can vote for.

I know the endless negative ads can be a turnoff. But if they're causing you to think about staying home next Tuesday, just remember: The people who created and financed those ads definitely will be voting. Do you want their cynical voices to be the only ones heard on Election Day?

Call us with your thoughts.

I‘m Bill Lamb, and that's my…Point of View.
