After Super Tuesday
I've a long way to go on learning a few things about politics. I'm one of those who didn't vote until the last Presidential Election. However, it just continually amazes me how many people who voted didn't even know which candidates are still in the race!
Then there is this bullshit rule when you go to vote in a Primary that you have to declare what party you are voting. I thought everyone's vote was supposed to be private. I mean the person who helped me feed my ballot into the automatic ballot counter machine was all "Oh no, put it back into the cardboard thingy. I can't see your votes or it'll burn my eyes!" How hypocritical. Is that the word I am even looking for?
I swear this election is putting a strain on my marriage. I'm pissed that my husband, for the first time in his voting life, had to vote the political party he has always disagreed with because his government job depends upon it. Apparently they check the voting records of employees. Ugh! Plus, when I ask my husband why he "likes" this particular candidate, he can't give me any clear cut reasons. So hubby, this ecard is for you! Ugh! I guess if James Carville and Mary Matalin can do it, so can we.
