I’ve been adamant that I would continue to support and vote for JRE and the issues that I believe he best addressed, and I’ve said that I would vote for him today no matter what. I went to the polling place to fill out my ballot and found that I just could not vote for John, not because I didn’t want to-somehow I’ve been registered as a fu**ing gooper! How the hell did that happen? Did I register unknowingly when filling out some ballot measure? Did I do it wanting to throw a monkey wrench in some gooper primary? I don’t think so, the last primary I voted in was the 04 election.
So, apologies to all my fellow Edwards supporters, and apologies to all of you that I’ve been hard on because I thought your candidate was not up to the standards that I’ve set for the bestowment of my vote: When push came to shove I could not do what I’d claimed I’d do-I could not stand and deliver, only stand.
So, in my shame and defeat I did the only thing I could think of, I voted for Willard, and I have to say to RFK lives, to Granny Doc, to all whom I mourned the loss of their comradship in the struggle to help John bring us to focus on the issues- Brethren and Sistren-You ended up voting for a much better candidate than I did.
36 years and this is my first vote for a gooper, and its not even the best gooper-McCain at least schooled Willard on the decency of torture.
Could I have some salt with my crow? Thanks
