[Just a couple more things on my mind before I get down to the business of talking smack on the Red Sox]
By now, everyone has read and/or linked to Stephen Green's post
on why he's voting straight Republican.
I'm with Stephen.
A couple of weeks ago - right after the first debate, in fact - I said I wouldn't set myself on fire if Kerry won. A lot can change in a short time. Just yesterday my son asked what I would do if Bush lost the election and I replied "set myself on fire." Then I had to explain to him what "metaphorically speaking" means.
I actually wrote one of my usual novel-length commentaries on this subject. Seven paragraphs of anger tinged with resignation, sauteed in sadness, basted in rage.....something like that. I put those paragraphs away in a folder somewhere because Stephen said it so perfectly.
bq. I'm going to vote Republican straight down the line. If I have to punish a couple of local Democrats I'm fond of, then so be it, but I have to try to get a point across: The national Democratic Party is bad for this country.
Read the rest if you haven't.
