Election day today, and of course I went to the polls. I cast my ballot for mayor and council members feeling confident in my choices, but I must confess that in one contest I didn’t have a feel for either candidate. Now, normally I would advise anyone who doesn’t feel informed to just skip that race altogether. In this case, however, I used a non-scientific approach.
See, there’s this house just up the street that had “Bush/Cheney” signs plastered all over its fences last year. This year, the spots were taken up with the name of one of the candidates. So I voted for his opponent.
Yes, thinking “anyone who Bush fans like is bad” is more than a little simplistic, but I’m not alone there. I guess Virginians weren’t impressed by Bush’s “Virginia Victory Rally” speech, which included such highlights as “I like a guy who loves his wife.”
