I got my vote on yesterday, by mail. I got a robocall from Sam Brownback reminding me to send in my mail-in ballot, it was actually kinda sweet for a robocall, I listened to it and for a split second thought about voting for the guy. But then I didn't. I really assume (well, in this case know, in most cases assume) that republicans from Kansas are not looking out for my best interests at all at this point. In other states, I could easily be convinced to vote for a republican, because there are moderates there. Here? Not so much.

I also voted for Obama. I don't feel great about it, I always felt great voting libertarian because I was sticking it to the man. Now I feel like a sheep. I guess that's what presidential voting is all about? It's annoying to vote for a guy who could actually be president... if he screws up, I'm going to feel a tiny bit guilty and bad about it... even though Kansas will NOT be going to Obama. The saying here is that Kansas will go democrat when Hell goes Methodist.

In other news, we are having a huge halloween party Friday night so I've been getting ready for that... staging, decorating, getting my costume in order. ms a is coming over to help make jello shots. i bought halloween candy but marc pretty much killed the peanut butter cups already, dammit.

welcome coworker nessalc to the f-lists. I was giving him crap a few weeks ago about blogging on his own website like an elitist instead of coming over to livejournal and sharing like a different kind of elitist, looks like he heard me. that's a hint to this guy, by the way, who I know is reading but insists on being on blogspot still instead of livejournal where the cool kids are. blogspot actually has growing membership... who needs that? be a part of 2001's hottest online community: el jay. yeah!

Bob Barr sucks. If success is measured by forcing your supporters to choose the lesser evil, then the LP is making progress :p

If he screws up, don't you mean when.

Exactly. I even like Obama, but there's no such thing as a president who never screws up. No matter how amazing they are, they're going to do something wrong eventually and get shit for it. You just have to expect that.

Jon Stewart had a good line about how every president disappoints us. With Obama, he said, "I hope it's financial."

Also, the line I'd heard about political party dominance (on the presidential level - we do have a Democrat for a governor and my congressional rep is a Democrat too) in Kansas was that Kansans would vote Republican even if Jesus Christ were on the Democratic ticket.

2001? But LJ started in 2000 or perhaps '99. I know I got my account back in '00 at least.

Well, technically everyone is throwing away their vote, since no presidential election in history was every won by one or two or even ten votes, right? :)
