Today I got in for early voting at almost 5pm on the last day of it. I have to admit I was impressed with the turnout there, but the caliber of people that showed up when I did sent a pit straight to my stomach.
I got a nice playlist consisting of ultra-liberal artists like Ani DiFranco, Bitch and Animal, Radiohead, U2… and isn’t it funny that neither Radiohead nor U2 are from the US but have very strong voices on US politics… anyway, I zoned out hardcore.
There was a cute guy standing with his Mom. Or at least I figured it was his Mom, she could have just been a Cougar. Either way he was adorable, standing up for his right to vote with his ultra-college mini beard and tattered cargo pants topped off with a stylishly plain haircut. I think I looked at this guy a little too long.
The guy behind him was a total Monet, I was right across from his voting booth while I was standing in like and it was like from the other side of the room he was a total 10+ but up close he looked like a Picasso.
Anyway, as you can see I was pretty freakin bored for the hour or whatever that I had to wait. Then I get up to the nice lady volunteering her time who printed me out some little validation code and a bar code and probably a few lotto tickets that didn’t win and I went to cast my vote.
Yes, immediately I make sure and check OBAMA. I don’t care if you don’t like him, I’d rather have him running the country than this guy. After that I went down the line and checked all of my other choices, only casting a vote for democrats. I didn’t do the “full democrat ticket” thing because there were a bunch that were only a republican was voting and honestly I’d just rather not vote if I only have 1 choice and it’s a fucking republican.
So it was over. Done with. I fucking voted, happy? I felt somewhat empowered that I had fought my little one vote battle against all the fucked up rednecks that had cast a useless vote for an incompetent candidate that day alone who’s just gonna get all Mavericky for four years. I even went over my ballot a dozen times to make sure it said Obama/Biden and not Fuckface/Rustycunt before pressing the big red “cast ballot” button.
BTW the first pic was done by my favorite artist of all kind/time Tycho/ISO50
