My loyal readers may be wondering who I’ll be voting for today (probably not, but it inflates my ego to think so):
Last year (or week) McCain was the last person that I would be supporting. However, anyone is better than the criminal pardoning Huck Finn (Mike Huckabee). How many murderers and rapists can you pardon and still be a legitimate candidate?
I must say that I appreciate Obama’s down-to-earthness and his decision not to be a complete slime-ball like his opponent. Put me in the group of people that say if Obama gets the nomination, he’ll stomp whoever the Republican nominee is in the general election. However, I disagree with Obama’s position on various policies.
McCain has been right on the war in Iraq (including the surge). McCain has also annoyed a lot of Republicans (including Ted Stevens [and his Bridge to Nowhere]) with his attempts to cut down on the pork in Congress. For more on McCain check on The right-wing liberal’s posts:
Regardless, go out and vote for the candidate that you support. And remember the first rule of elections: Vote early, vote often.
UPDATE: I was the 15th voter overall (8th Republican) in the Port Royal precinct at 7:00 am. As I was leaving, the 16th voter (8th Democratic) was coming in. There were only 787 registered voters in the Port Royal precinct in 2005 (sorry, can’t find more recent numbers), so we will see if the turnout is as high as the media has been hyping.
I would love to do some live blogging of the results tonight, but that won’t be possible since I’ll be at the Board of Supervisors meeting from 6:00 pm ’til who-knows-when.
