Don't forget to vote today. I was voter # 22 at my precinct, and probably the onliest Democrat up that early. I was the only voter in the room when I showed up, and it took me literally two seconds to vote. It was like one of those high school tests that's so easy you spend more time thinking you missed something than you do actually answering the questions. I was looking for the extra page of questions... Ever have that?
Anyway, an Island City Democrat only has two things to vote for today, Secretary of State (I voted for Darryl Hicks) and Lt. Governor (I voted for Jim Martin). Now I get to stay at work, and watch the news all day waiting for news that voters in Atlanta and Connecticut have rejected jackassery.
Speaking of jackassery, I have two more items on that particular topic:
1. What do you do if you are a respected international news agency, and you find out that your freelancers are doctoring photos of a war zone (badly, I might add)? You fire them, and then release this information to everyone so no one else will hire his lying ass either. Reject Jackassery.
2. I hope this attitude prevails until November, and for as long as we need. It is the rising tide of rejecting incumbency - which is like jackassery, but different. We deserve better from our government, and this year is a pointed reminder of that fact.
