Voting third party is worse than throwing your vote away

Don’t blow your vote on this cheeseball! Photo: Gary Johnson’s website On the way down to do phonebanking early Wednesday evening I was half-listening to “All The Fresh American Things Considered” or whatever on NPR when they began a segment about young, disaffected voters considering voting third party.
