So I’ve been without a horse in this race since July. Republicans are on my “not with a ten food pole and a bottle of disinfectant” list until their (hopefully) inevitable meltdown and restructuring. I’m allergic to being taken care of and or helped, so the Democrats aren’t getting my vote just ‘casue*, and Barak Obama went and pissed on my deal-breaker issues meaning I won’t vote for him personally either. The Libertarians are running a hard core Republican, which means they’re not getting touched – and frankly, I’m pissed at them for their remarkably poor taste. Palin’s undone any damage they were hoping Barr would do in terms of poaching the conservative base, and while swiping Republicans is an age-old standby for Libertarians, that doesn’t mean we have to accept the icky ones.
I’ve been in a remarkably bad mood for a while, and exposure to the news is definitely contributing, so in an effort to insulate myself I went candidate shopping tonight. I haven’t quite settled on anything yet, but I definitely found something I like at first glance: The Boston Tea Party. Come on now, I’d give my newly founded break-away libertarian party that name too. The guy they’re running has dealings with the Personal Choice party (we’re just singing my song) and ran with a porn star in the VP slot. I’m tempted to vote for him just for the porn star bit because, seriously, you don’t get more pro-woman than that, and he did it in the election style before having tits on the ticket became trendy. He’s ahead of the curve.
Yeah, I’m still enjoying the Joker a little too much. I’m sure I’ll stop wanting to burn down the world in just a few more weeks. Maybe. A little. Not.
*For those of you about to hemorrhage, please note that while I’m actively pissed at and uncomfortable with the Republicans, I’m simply not interested in voting for a Democrat. Just mentioning since I know some of you care, and others will stop talking to me if I don’t clarify.
