Vote Kinky

Damn right, I voted. I walked two miles, uphill, in the rain. Just to vote. Vote early (“Vote early, vote often” is a Texas tradition).

What prompted me? I got a call on the landline, and it was Republican campaign. It held nothing back, It was sordid tale about child abuse, and how a certain Lt. Gov. Candidate would enact legislation to prevent this from happening again. As a career politician, he’s done nothing to speak of, just hitching onto the latest ticket to get attention - pure sleaze.

I voted, and I was angry. It was a hot button ad. One of those pre-recorded telephone calls. I can sincerely hope that the candidate rots in hell for letting his campaign use such a tactic.

In one sense, the call did get me out. Did get me to vote. But it also backfired. I can only hope there are more sentient beings voting these days. I even had to wait in line to cast a ballot. That’s a good sign.

I don’t suppose my vote for governor is any secret, though. Can’t say that I’m not supporting the Scorpio cause, though.

I commented to one election official that I’d walked, uphill, in the rain, just to vote. She quipped back, “carrying your lunch, too.”

Made me smile.
