While you may have to stand in line to vote on Tuesday, Nov. 4, it looks as though it will be a beautiful day with partly cloudy skies and a high of 74 degrees.
If you have not seen a sample ballot yet, you may want to look at these sites before you go to the polls.
As usual, the League of Women Voters have some good non-partisan information about the election on their fine Website.
Just about everyone is recommending a vote for Amendment 1 on Tuesday in Alabama even though it’s not heralded as a very good piece of legislation. And there are other amendments on the ballot that do not apply to every county in the state.
I say if you don’t know enough about a race or an issue to make an informed decision, just check the box for the Democratic Party at the top and vote a straight ticket and let everybody else determine the rest. Head for the nearest bar or celebration party and get ready to celebrate the Obama landslide.
I’ve never agreed with the mainstream news media or most of the pundits who say that people should vote whether they know enough or care enough about the candidates or the issues to get informed about them.
If you are reading this, you are most likely not too much of an ignorant, dumbass, redneck. So go vote.
If you are one of the idiot, idealogical Republicans who like to send me hate mail, I hope you break your leg and can’t make it to the polls. You are as much to blame for the problems in this country as the frat boy, Texas prince, fuck-up you voted for twice in 2000 and 2004.
As Hunter S. Thompson would say if he were alive and blogging today, “When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.”
Once this election for president is over, the fight begins to turn Alabama blue again.
If Bob “Cowboy Boots” Riley and his little buddy Karl Rove and the Newhouse corporate press in this state think they are going to take over the Alabama Legislature for the Gay Old Pedophile party, they are sadly mistaken. As broke and incompetent as the Alabama Democratic Party seems to be sometimes, we suspect this election will change some things and get more smart people involved here.
Hey, we could be wrong. But that doesn’t happen very often, now does it?
