Don't blame us, we voted for the globalist open-borders liberal maniac.
So I just got back from early voting. It was really really fast. It took longer for my iPhone to boot back up after I got out than it did to vote. Although I am apparently incapable of signing my name the same way twice, so that caused a small hiccup while my signature (which, like me, is tall, dark, handsome, inscrutable, and pretty loopy) was cross-checked. I voted for Obama, as I've been threatening to do for a few weeks now.
The one thing that made me rethink voting for Obama was seeing Biden's name on there. I almost balked but then I remembered how angry eight years of Republicans rolling over for Bush have made me, and I swallowed my tongue and voted Obama-Biden. I'd forgotten I have to vote for that plagiarist little worm too if I vote for Obama. Blech. Anything is better than four more years of folks like Power Line making excuses for another liberal Republican instead of fighting him.
I did vote for a few pitiful Republicans running to be various kinds of dog catcher or senator, and I voted No on some super-daffy referenda and yes on some ideas I liked, such as being able to recall the Governor. This is such a one-party state that several offices didn't even have a Republican contending for the job. Also none of the judgeships up for grabs even had a Republican on the ballot, just Democrats. You can't win the fight if you don't show up, guys.
I've also just spoken to the election folks, and since I'm good with computers, they're not stationing me in my precinct after all. Instead I'll be sent to work at a satellite site to help with something-or-other that involves computers (but I will
still be dealing with voters all day, just ones who messed up their registration somehow). I have to go through extra training for it, which I'm doing tomorrow afternoon. Squee, I'm excited!
zorkie early-voted yesterday too, also for Obama. Don't worry, we won't ban you for voting for McCain. This is a free speech blog. But don't expect any dessert in the Ferkakta cafeteria. The nurse will be checking how you voted, and those who vote wrongly do not get fruit cup. And now, to settle in for four years of vigorous opposition to the President, whichever one it may be. Please join us in opposing the incoming President!
