I voted, and... - Elf M. Sternberg
I voted, and...
So, I went and voted today. I chose to vote on the Democratic ticket because Democrats tend to wind up in control of much of the state machinery around here and there are a number of Democrats I want to vote against, so...

I pulled out the ballot, marked my preference for Democrats (not really, I'm just a Republican who's ashamed of the party), and scanned the roster of names. And as my first-pass scan is going through, a name registers on the ballot with more than mere recognition. For there, at the bottom of the ballot, it reads:

[ ] D. Omaha Sternberg.

I stop, double-check. Yes, my wife has her name on the ballot. Apparently, all that machination with the Democratic party earlier this year resulted in her receiving a nomination for precinct captain, and apparently someone thinks she accepted. Okay, so it's a minor step on her way to World Domination, but we all must start somewhere.

A bit freaked out, I voted for my wife today...

Cool. I ended up voting for myself in a couple of places... I'll post about it in a minute...

charlesks cast his (absentee) ballot for me a few days ago, and I will (of course!) be voting for myself later today. I'm on the ballot as PCO, too.

Don't worry. You'll make a good first-husband (or concubine to the empress - or whatever)

I nominated myself for precinct captain this year, and it was pretty neat to see myself on the ballot.

And even neater to watch the secretary of state page and watch the votes come in...

"I pulled out the ballot, marked my preference for Democrats (not really, I'm just a Republican who's ashamed of the party)"

Sternberg, you don't need to hide your guiltyness. In many of your previous entries you label yourself as a guilty white liberal, so you're not fooling anyone (let alone, MYSELF).

Re: whatever...

Ah, another anonymous coward. I wonder what makes you think I'm liberal, or feel guilty.

Re: whatever...

Well, this will be my last post on this, but the fact that you have clearly stated in past entries that you listen to NPR or other such "news agencies" other than Fox is a big hint. And from watching these topics for many months, you can't say one good thing about the Bush administration.

So, like I said, you're not fooling me.

Re: whatever...

Sure, I listen to NPR. I'm also an avid reader of Reason and National Review. What's your point?

And you're right; I haven't had a single good thing to say about the Bush administration. As economic conservatives, they suck. As social conservatives, they suck. What more could you ask?
