I'm not sure how it is in other states, but in Texas we don't need no stinking reason to vote early. We just do.

I voted today. Georgia didn't start until Monday and there are 5 hour waits at some places.

I voted about an hour ago. A little, older lady in the booth next to me poked her head into my booth and asked in very broken English...."please, how do I vote for Mr. Bush?"

I was more than happy to show her....only slightly able to refrain from hugging her Smile

The Age of Miracles is not yet passed. For only the second time in 12 years the State of Washington has gotten us our absentee ballots in time. We sent them back by DHL today.

I would have pointed out to the old lady that Bush is spelled K-e-r-r-y.

No surprise re Curt Schilling.

Love him as a pitcher, and eternally grateful for his contribution to the end of our perrenial suffering. But that's pretty much where it stops. He's almost incapable of uttering a complete sentence without using the word Lord, or God, or Christian, etc. What puzzles me is how "God" gets credit whenever Schilling does well, but never gets any blame when he fails to perform.

Seriously, though, I have absolutely no problem with Schilling's faith, because he is not the leader of the free world, and the tenets and mandates of his faith, therefore, are not forced upon my life (via, for example, public funding for faith-based charities, laws obstructing public funding for embryonic stem cell research, extremist fundamentalist court nominees, and, amendments that would enshrine bigotry in the US constitution.)

I also have no real problem with him voicing his opinion of TV. We all love Curt, but his expression of support for Bush will change no one's mind.

Funny how conservative celebrities' political pronouncements are taken seriously by many of the same crowd that decries the Robert Redford/Barbra Sriesand forays into politics.

Edgar,

Do you think the redistricting we heard so much about a while back will have the intended effect of the outcome of the election in Texas ?

Was it done to affect mainly in-state outcomes?

As we know, local politics play a large part in federal politics. It all works from the ground up. An all Republican state will not vote a man like Kerry in, no matter how bad they consider Bush to be. Locals get the senators and congressmen voted in.

You know, I'm almost at the point where I feel the only way to convince Bush supporters what a dangerous and disastrous president he has been is for him to be re-elected and allowed to run this country completely into the ground domestically and internationally. Then maybe they'd get it.

I said I'm almost at that point; almost, but not quite - I love my country too much.

The evil that men do lives on long after - something to that effect. If Bush is able to appoint a couple of Supreme Court justices we are screwed.

I say let's give it a shot and see if your approach works.

I said "almost", and my comment was borderline tongue-in-cheek.

In fact, I love America way too much to wish that dangerous divisive lunatic upon her and the world for four more DAYS, never mind four more years.
