My election day experience

As most of you know, I was one of the rare undecideds until I walked into the voting booth on Tuesday. As I sat there staring at the ancient contraptions on which I was supposed to vote, I pondered.

"I wonder what I should have for dinner tonight?"

Kidding. In all honesty, this vote came down to what I knew and didn't know. What I didn't know is what I would be getting with Kerry. This man showed a remarkable ability to reinvent himself for the audience he addressed. While a neat trick, this was not the person I want running our country. I don't really want Bush running it either, but at least I know what I'm getting with him (even if I don't like it all the time). Kerry was just a wild card for me. And so ... I held my nose (thanks Dad) and switched the lever for Bush/Cheney.

Sorry J, I know you think less of me now.

Nope, I don't think less of you at all, just don't like the argument that he is the lesser of two evils or the more known. We'll have a better idea in 4 years.
