Last week in many parts of the nation voters went to the polls to ballot in what any number of online jabberers and cable television babblers took to calling “off-off-year elections.”
The term “off-year elections” has long been the customary way to designate those elections held two years before and/or two years after a presidential election.
So in an age like ours, where political campaigns have become perpetual and uninterrupted, it was perhaps inevitable that some would conjure up a phrase for elections that are held between presidential and “off-year” elections.
Thus, after last week’s elections in Virginia, New Jersey, New York City and all sorts of other places, many Americans found themselves watching returns on those ubiquitous cable TV stations where talking heads feign to be profound about the results of the “off-off-year elections” of 2013.
For those who have had it up to here with wall-to-wall politics it was almost certainly a dreary spectacle. For those who have resigned themselves to the fact that politics is a growth industry in these United States it was most likely proof positive that a good many pundits posing as “experts” can make a lot of noise without making a lick of sense. It’s amazing if you stop and reflect upon it.
