2008 Presidential Candidate Matching Quiz


So I take the quiz. Look at the results. Think to myself, "Gosh, I don't know much about this Dodd fellow, but I suppose I should check him out." Went to his website.

Turns out that, um, he's dropped out of the race. Heh.

Not that Michigan's primary means a whole hell of a lot this year. Politics sucks, politicians suck, and most especially political parties suck.

My 10-year-old is joining me in watching the returns tonight (Dan and the 5-year-old went to PCN); I guess they've been discussing the election process at her school quite a bit (last week one of her homework assignments was to take a US map and mark each state with its electoral votes) and she's interested. (Thinks she is, anyway--we'll see how long she holds out! :))

We'll have some chips and pop a little later on, make it more of a fun thing :).

Civic duty

I've just come home from voting and running a few errands. No line, which is usual for our voting place (we're on the far end of the township so there aren't a lot of us). And hey, no one even offered me a sticker! :(

I'm not going to Pagan Coffee Night tonight (feeling a little under the weather) and am planning a nice evening of knitting and watching the election returns. (Or I was until I scalded several fingers on my left hand just now, so the knitting may be out, not sure yet. In rhat case it'll just be me and CNN.)

I missed my first chance to vote because I had just gone off to collge, far out of state, and never got around to getting an absentee ballot. I was 18, and that was 1980. I haven't missed an election since. I've been reading (in LJ and on mailing lists) about folks' memories of the Reagan years, their opinions of him as a president. I didn't vote for him, wouldn't have even if I had gotten that ballot, but I never had a particular dislike of the man--he seemed nice enough, although since I've always been pretty liberal I didn't agree with much of his platform. (And if I had disliked him, I couldn't have wished anything worse for him than what did inevitably happen to him.) So, no great thoughts from here (although I may steer clear of the History Channel and CNN for a while! :)).

Dan is out doing yardwork, potting hops and grapes and so forth. I'm about to get to work clearing some stuff out of the way upstairs so that we can try to get that mattress out later. We'll be sleeping on the couches for a couple of days, but it's going to be quite a job getting things ready for the new mattres that's coming next week. I'm still not sure how we're going to get it in.
