Tilting at Windmills.

I agree with my Psych professor that Barack Obama would have to murder someone on national TV to not win the election.

Nevertheless, I voted for John McCain today.

I took Bobbie with me, pissing off my four-year-old because I didn't take her too. I picked Bobbie up and held her finger to check the John McCain/Sarah Palin button, and to push the button to send the ballot at the end of it.

Other than McCain/Palin, I voted Libertarian whenever I could, and I did not vote for even unopposed Democrats, with one exception.

I voted to reelect Judge Larry Noll, for no reason other than he's the one who told my ex-husband he'd be better off spending the divorce lawyer money on marriage counseling and trying to save the relationship. It didn't work, but I respect him for trying. (Beyond that, he's got a great reputation locally.) He was running unopposed, anyway.

I wasn't able to vote for Ciro Rodriguez like I wanted. From all the news coverage and the mentions of his district stretching from San Antonio (west, I think), I thought I was in his district. Alas, I am not. Our representative, Leticia Van De Putte, seems to be running unopposed. I left that one blank.

Ah well. I am happy with what I was able to do, and that I was able to share the experience with my daughter.

I voted today, too. It's the first Texas election I've voted in and I had to figure out the little video game controller that is in the booth. But after that it was fast and easy, and kind of like buying a movie on pay-per-view.

At first I voted straight Repub, but then I decided to vote for the libertarian in every judicial race that had one. The hope of a libertarian executive or legislature is a fond dream, but a few judges on the bench can be rather effective.

Sorry, don't wear em. It's polo shirts for me.
