Today I will be going to vote. Based on the poll I ran up to today, I should waste a vote, then insert explosives rectally. Thankfully, the majority of you who voted did not tell be to vote for McCain, as the result would have been a chorus of "go to hell", as I sure as shit in a saucepan will not vote For John McCain in the primary. As of right now, I have not yet decided who to waste a vote on, as I won't vote for Huck-a-duck or Ron "Uber-Mook" Paul.
Actually, I did consider crossing over to cast a vote against Hillary, if just to drive the Clintons from power for all eternity. However, I abandoned that as my soul does not need anymore scarring.
I'm done covering the Republican race as of tomorrow, since Ohio and Texas (I think the Lone-Star State, due to time zones, gets the dishonor) will put McCain over the top on delegates. This means Huck-a-duck can finally call it in and the Ron Paulistas can crawl back into their nutspank bunkers to mole around for another four years.
But the Democrats are another story. I've been getting the sense that Hillary will win Ohio. If she does, it will be a narrow win, but enough to carry her forward to the next primaries. With our governor, Ted Strickland, out on the stump for her, it has given her a boost that Obamamania can't quite overcome. Governor Strickland hasn't been in office long enough to really bury himself, and as he was an improvement over the travesty of our former governor, Bob Taft (as corrupt big-government Republican as you can get), his support means something.
This is disappointing to me. I would like to wake up tomorrow secure in the knowledge that the Clinton era is over forever. No more scandals, no more lies, no more blow jobs. The disgrace that Bill and Hillary have brought to the public discourse, and the political nastiness that kept them going, had been another blemish on the country not seen since the days of Nixon and Watergate. And while the continuation of the Hillary campaign will do more damage to Barack Obama and make it easier for John McCain to win without my support, I can't in good conscience do anything that would perpetuate the Clinton's stay in active politics.
So to all my fellow Ohioans, and those other states voting today:
And if you don't vote, don't bitch when the politicians do something you don't like. With freedom comes responsibility, and if you don't exercise your responsibilities, then your freedom isn't all that damned important.
I have wasted my vote on Fred Thompson. Also, it's getting icy, which may change the voting dynamic in favor of Obama. More to come.
