I went to my designated polling place and voted, despite the address being wrong on the voter’s guide.
I’m still a registered Republican, so I voted for McCain whom I saw as my only choice. 8 years ago I would gladly have voted for the man.. no, wait, I did vote for him in that primary but California’s was so late and there was so much dirt already slung that he had no chance. Now I’m worried about some of his stances and I will be watching the Democratic nominee, more than likely voting for him/her.
Have They Been Smoking Crack?
I saw last night that Reuters was calling for Obama and Romney to take California.
Seriously, what polls are they using? Do they really think that a majority of California Republicans wants to put Mitt in the White House? Have they not noticed how motivated the Hispanic vote is, and that it favors Hillary by a lot? I was calling it for McCain and Clinton a week ago, based on what I’ve read and not on my personal preferences.
I noticed the dishonesty in the MSM reporting over the past few weeks, not listing super delegates so that it would look like Obama and Clinton were nearly tied when at that point there was still a sizable gap between their delegate numbers. It looks like it may be a narrower gap tomorrow after the counting finally stops sometime in the wee hours; I have to wonder if those reports were made to make the primaries more “interesting”, to sell papers.
Granted, it is an historic moment if Barack Obama wins the nomination, but it also is if Hillary wins the nomination. I am fairly certain that we will have either a woman or a black man for our next president. I sincerely hope that this next president is not just another jerk in the pocket of Big Business.
My niece asked us last week what we thought about Obama and Hillary Clinton, and we told her that either one will be fine. She needed reassurance, needed to hear that the world would not end, having only heard the garbage being spewed about both by her parents and grandfather, as well as the hyper-conservative Christians who attend her college. She called me today to tell me she’d voted, and I don’t think it was for Huckabee, a minor miracle.
She supports torture… WTF?
During the BBC America news last night, I heard an idiot woman caller on a far-right-wing talk show in Arizona saying she supported torture and John McCain didn’t support torturer so she couldn’t support him. WTF is wrong with people?
