The Crossover Vote

Squeeky and I took the plunge, voted in Tuesday's Democrat primary for ... Hillary Clinton.

Mischievous? Yes and no. There weren't any contested races on the GOP side at our precinct, except for sheriff, and I'll leave that one to people who know who's best for the job. (I don't.) So, it was either just vote for a bunch of folks who are certain to win anyway, or vote for the Democrat more likely to lose in November.

The funniest observation of all this came from a commenter at Ace of Spades, who called voting in the other party's primary a "Wile E. Coyote" stunt that would end with us all knee-deep in Acme glue, or something.

Maybe. But I see it as either way, Rittenhouse wins.

Let's say McCain comes out on top in the general election. I figure he owes me an ambassorship, preferably in some country where I can wear my fez.

Or, if Clinton wins the general, she still owes me an ambassadorship for helping keep her alive in the primary. Then I can keep my promise—which I haven't made yet, by the way—to leave the country if she is elected president.

there is, of course, the possibility that we will inaugurate President Barack Hussein Obama in January. Then we'll all link arms and sing together 24/7 for the next four years anyway.
