It will make you feel like you're participating

Tomorrow I get to vote in my primary.

Hee. The REPUBLICAN primary.

In a decidedly BLUE state.

In a year in which John McCain would basically have to murder a puppy on live television to not get the nomination.

The Sons keep asking who I'll vote for. And I keep hemming and hawing. I will have to hold my nose and pick one, I guess. Not that it will matter. Because my primary is late (so my candidate dropped out ages ago), and my state will go Democrat no matter what I do.

I am just all hopped up on patriotism and civic duty, this morning. Whee, doggie!

I'm voting tomorrow too! Yahoo! I love democracy and voting and think everyone should exercise this important right. Go Rock the Vote Girl!

The early Florida primary is a new thing, as you probably know. I was always so mad that the candidate was basically picked for me! And I'd still dutifully go vote anyway, like a sucker. All this to say, I relate.

Now that the technology's changed, I think primaries should be closer together (like within weeks of each other), done in a standard way.

If it makes you feel better we had an early primary and my candidate has since dropped out.

I work out 5 days a week and rarely eat fast food, but I thought about going to McDonalds today. So it looks like we're all doing our duty as Americans.

Hey, glad you're getting out there and (as Andrea said) rocking the vote! Doesn't matter which side one votes for, as long as one just gets out there and does something!
