My Vote on Super Tuesday II

Presidential primary day in Rhode Island is always fun, especially when you’re a Republican voting in your party’s virtually uncontested primary.  She Who Must Not be Named’s surprisingly cute C-list Death Eaters stationed at the polling place, the bright-eyed college kids holding signs asking everyone to “honk for hope,” and the look of utter confusion on the poll worker’s face as she rummaged for that yellow ballot off to the side somewhere made the morning interesting and amusing.  Since there were no conservatives on the ballot to support in protest of McCain (Romney came closest), I wrote-in Fred Thompson.  This was the first time I ever cast a write-in vote in a multi-candidate race.  I am behind McCain 100 percent and have been ever since it was clear he would be our nominee, but I had to cast my objection somehow.  Better to do that in a meaningless primary than in November given the alternatives.

The primaries are designed for the party to vote its conscience and articulate its beliefs in selecting its nominee for President.

Thank you, Mike for continuing that tradition in Rogue’s Island.
