I voted today in the Massachusetts primary.
I voted for Chris Dodd.
That’ll show ’em!
As an independent, I could have voted in the Republican primary. But I couldn’t make up my mind between Ron Paul and Alan Keyes. That’s a joke.
Actually, I did consider using my vote to cast a “spoiler”. But I can’t figure out who I want to win anyway, so I decided against it.
Hillary is a triangulating politician with nasty ties to the horrible telcos, and she voted for the war, and she didn’t fillibuster Bush’s horrible supreme court appointees, etc, etc.
Obama is very eloquent and inspiring, but his legislative record is pretty weak, and he fibs about it. He also has a record of being conveniently out of town when several “put up or shut up” votes were taken in the Senate. Overall, I guess I would prefer that he be the nominee just for the feeling of hope that would arise in the country if he actually were the president. But I don’t think he’s the second damn coming, that’s for sure.
Chris Dodd is no saint. But damnit, he’s the only person on the ballot of any party who has actually done anything lately to forestall the depredations of C+ Augustus, our boy-emperor. So he got my vote. Fuckit.
In the general election I’ll vote for whoever the Democratic nominee is. It will be funny if it’s a race between young hip Barak and cranky creaky ancient John McCain.
