Who knew that midterm elections could be so damn sexy? Naughty page boys, crystal meth and escorts, even vague threats of Democrats raping your daughter! And that's just the Republicans! It's a veritable beltway circuit party.
I voted in my quaint little NJ town, at the local elementary school, staffed by elderly Cubans who took their sweet time to find your Ward and your name. It was strangely inspiring. I pushed the correct buttons and watched the choices light up with a green X before pushing the big red VOTE button. I managed to resist the temptation to vote for the libertarian "Politicians Are Crooks" party, but it was difficult.
I voted Column B straight down, and reflected that as much as I have drifted from the Democrats, I still seem to vote for them every time. In this election particularly I really wanted to go on record as supporting the idea of New Jersey as a blue state. We are about to enact some legislative history with respect to gay marriage, or whatever the hell they decide to call it, and as amusing as it would be to see it happen on the Republicans' watch, it just doesn't seem right. No one does corruption or sex scandals quite like NJ Dems, bless their crooked little hearts.
I did not, however, vote for the obnoxious ballot initiative dedicating a portion of my NJ tax money to ...wait for it....tax reform! It's just too perverse.
So, get out and vote already! And if you live in Chicago, vote for Aatom! I promise there will definitely be more page boy scandals on my watch!
