With Election 2012 we return to lesser-of-two-evils time. Or do we instead denounce the whole charade? For Progressives, Romney is G.W. Bush III--and so is Obama, pretty much. What to do?

We'll read essays on crummy presidential elections by W.E.B. DUBOIS ("Why I Won't Vote," 1956) and CHRIS HEDGES ("How Do You Take Your Poison?" September 2012). We'll hear a funny trailer for a pretend GOP horror movie about Obama. Plus a satiric rant by LEE CAMP and a bit of music by Bruce Cockburn.
The trailer "2nd Term O2H" was produced by The Final Edition Radio Hour. Lee Camp's rant is from his "Moment of Clarity" podcast #162.

"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "long-suffering sighs") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
