Hello from Primary Central where I’m still not dressed and I haven’t voted, yet. (Hey! Stop looking at me like I’m a lazy-ass-slacker.) I promise to vote in a few hours, and I promise to have bed head.
I’ll live blog my election experiences very shortly.
This is so important: I predict a win for HRC and Romney because the fundamentalist Dutch community supports Romney (despite his Mormonism) & don’t believe in the viability of a Huckabee presidency. It might be the first time in my life that I’ve agreed with my neighbors.
Overheard at The Meijer — “Huckabee should get a radio show.”
Dear baby jesus, please do not let Huckabee get his own radio show.
I’ve heard the pundits say that Michigan is a lock for McCain, but people don’t trust him and don’t like his temper. Michigan has a growing Latino population who work on the blueberry farms, too. This is important because Michigan has a history of racism — although it’s the Midwest, so it’s mostly just passive-aggressive racism. (People are nice about it, if that’s even possible). McCain didn’t make friends in the Michigan Militia with his support of the immigration bill.
PS – I’m living in the Alabama of the north.
PPS – I want a bumper sticker that says, “Don’t Mess With The Dutch.” It cracks me up.
In the meanwhile, today matters because
- it’s Kate’s birthday! (Go send her a pony on our advice column.)
- it’s my Nana’s birthday!
- it’s my cousin’s birthday!
- it’s my former boss [turned good friend]’s birthday!
- it’s MLK JRs birthday and it’s pretty cool to vote on his birthday.
More from the ballot box!
