Why Politics Annoys Me
When I get home from work I'm filling out a voter registration card so I can change my affiliation to Democrat. Don't get all excited, this isn't something I want to do. But the pragmatic part of my brain realizes that (a) Bush probably ain't the best man for the job, (b) Being the incumbent, Bush is a virtual lock for the Republican nomination, (c) we therefore need to find a good Democrat -- or at least a not-too-bad Democrat -- to run against Bush and win.
And since I'd like to have a say in the election I'm going to vote in the Democratic primary. I'll make sure I wash really well when I finish.
