Wheeee! Politics just got easy!

Boing Boing posted a link this week to a chart of 2008 presidential candidates' stances on various issues. Bah. It is too early for that nonsense and chaaaaarts are so haaaaaard to reeeeeead. What's that? There's an online quiz? Well, why didn't you say so? My top 3, apparently: Kucinich - 28 pointsOnce again, Kucinich comes in at the top. He will never ever win, but he keeps trying. You go, little gnome! I voted for him in the Michigan Democratic primary three and a half years ago. Yes, it was a throwaway vote (If I remember correctly, Kucinich came...

Smoke-free Ohio

I was very conflicted on Issue 5 in this election: a proposed smoking ban to affect all bars, restaurants and other public places in Ohio. On one hand, I felt like a statewide ban was really strong, and preferred to leave it up to individual establishments to decide whether they wanted non-smokers' business. On the other hand, I don't want to breathe the stuff. All in all, I was just glad that it was on the ballot because it was really making people think about smoking. This was the only thing on the entire ballot that I had any real...

I say vote yes! (Sit down, srah)

I tripped off to the polling place today, buoyant with excitement at the prospect of My Very Own First Electronic Voting Experience. I walked down the road (for a nice 1500 or so steps each way), went up to the Precinct 3 table and gave them my name and ID. They informed me that I wasn't on their list and that judging by the road I live on, I was supposed to be at the Srahtown Township table rather than Srahtown Precinct 3. This was a bit of a surprise, as I'd always had the impression I was inside the...

Gaseous matters

Seen yesterday whilst pursuing my HIGHEST STEPCOUNT DAY EVER: Many people have suggested that lowering gas prices is a ploy by the GOP to entice people to vote Republican this November. I, myself, do not think Oh my, such good prices on gas! Thank you, Ken Blackwell! Clearly the price of this gas is thanks to YOU! Here is my vote!. Who does that? If that's actually the case, then I'm mostly just disgusted that the Republican party thinks so poorly of us. I will take my cheap gas, thank you, and drive to the polling location where I will...

Democracy, meh.

"Do you understand the ballot? Is this your first time voting?" Screw you, lady! I've been eligible for six years! Why didn't I absentee-vote? Lines were terrible, especially for my particular "precent" (as it was labeled all over my middle school gym). I voted. After doing so, I realized that I think both candidates are stupid and I don't want either representing me for the next four years, but I don't have a lot of choice. It's done. So there. Vote NO on Proposal 2 - it's the only thing I really care about. Here's a fun headline: Long queues...

'T'es pour Bush, toi? Non, c'est un gros connard, lui!'

November is setting itself up to be quite a month of negativity as I find myself voting against things instead of for anything. I hate having to do that. I wish I liked Kerry at all....

I am tempted to vote for the CWDHFNFLN...

Voting stresses me out. At the insistence of a friend, I applied to vote in the Michigan Democratic Caucus. So I've spent the past week (well, mostly this morning) trying to figure out who I'm going to vote for. The letter I received along with my ballot asks for contributions to the Michigan Democratic Party and informs me that by requesting this ballot, I have "taken the first step to defeat George W. Bush!" While I'm all about getting that wang out of office, I wish there were a way to rephrase that so that it wouldn't be so negative....

A political observation

Kerry... Dean... Clark... Edward(s)... I think Dennis Kucinich and Al Sharpton should run together on the Candidates Who Don't Have First Names For Last Names ticket....
