Well, I'm not sure I did the right thing, but I think I convinced my wife to go out and vote for Convergència i Unió tomorrow. The conversation went sort of like this:

John: So who are you going to vote for?
Remei: I don't really give a crap. I don't think I'm going to vote.
J: Hey, it's the only chance you get to speak when it counts. You like the city government, vote for them, you don't like it, vote against them.
R: I don't really like any of the parties.
J: Neither do I, but you have to pick the least worst, or however you say that.
R: I'm not gonna vote for the PP.
J: I'm not even going to try...Look, you're always complaining about parking and traffic...
R: I like the Esquerra guy, he's nice to animals, but they're crazy, Carod-Rovira and ETA and all.
J: Look, you can vote en blanco, none of the above, and at least you're making it official you're pissed off.
R: No PP. No Tripartite. But I don't like Trias.
J: Well, you're voting for the party, not just the candidate...You like the Socialist guy better? The Socialists are reasonable, but you really wanna vote for the way things are?
R. All right, I'll go vote for Convergencia if you wash the dishes every expletive deleted day like you're supposed to.

I think I lost.
