Voting For My Representative

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.
