Over the past week or so, I've been getting ready to vote. Part of my research involves asking people who are smarter than me what their opinions are. Today, I turned to my buddy Steve for advice on NC District 13. One thing that I was surprised to find out was that I'm in the same district as Raleigh. Yay for gerrymandering! *grumble* Well, my choices for the House seat are Brad Miller (D) and Virginia Johnson (R). I certainly wasn't going to just throw my support to the Republican without doing some checking, 'cause the Republicans have a tendancy to put liberals like Elizabeth Dole on the ticket from time to time. Steve pays a lot more attention to local politics than I do, so I knew I would value his opinion. The following conversation ensued:
Greg: Should I prefer Brad Miller or Virginia Johnson? Steve: Virginia Steve: First because she is a good conservative and Brad Miller is a communist, and second because she is completely hot.
Well, there you have it. I'll be voting for the candidate who looks like Annette Bening.
