I'm back from vacation and the first thing I do is hit you in the face with politics. Sorry about that, but I can't help it. Every four years, my political urges become not unlike Mister Spock's once-every-seven-year mating frenzy.
(Great way to start a post. I'm going to tell you I voted for Ron Paul and I basically out myself as a geek.)
It's Super Tuesday, and Massachusetts has it's presidential primary today. And, as the feline I let escape from the sack already told you, I voted for Ron Paul.
I am not going to make a big sales pitch here. I have to assume that, if you care at all, you already know the candidates and probably have at least a strong leaning for one or another. If not, and if my endorsement can sway you, I'd appreciate you casting a vote for Dr. Paul. But, if you must pull the lever for someone else, I assume we can still be friends.
So, as I said, no sales pitch. However, I'd like you to answer a couple of questions, if you have the time. If you voted today (or if you voted in an earlier primary) for whom did you vote? If you wouldn't be uncomfortable doing so, would you tell us which state you voted in? Feel free to give a SHORT speech, if you wish (but, please, limit yourself to the absolute must-get-it-out-of-your-system stuff, and give others a chance.)
Above all else, I request civility. I never censor comments here, but today I reserve the right to pull those that make personal attacks. Argue policy and agenda, but no calling anyone a stupid poopyhead.
(I was exit-polled today as I left the voting place in Watertown. It is the first time in my life I was ever exit-polled. That's what made me think about doing my own bit of polling today. Thanks for taking the time to comment, whether you agree with my choice of Ron Paul or not.)
Soon, with less stuff about politics and more stuff about vacations.
