Salt

I did it. I voted for him.

When I got home, the OG asked me who I had voted for. I told her.

And...do you know what she did? DO YOU KNOW?

She TURNED HER FACE AWAY FROM ME and WOULD NOT LOOK AT ME. When I said her name a couple of times, she finally turned to me, and...SHE WAS BAWLING.

Her question to me: "How could you vote for him, and not for her?"

God, I let down my own daughter, with my vote! I felt like I just shot down all her hopes and dreams.

You people better be right. He'd better be incredible.

(And my mother is going to be SO pissed at me, too. Is it OK to lie to her about who I voted for, do you think? What if it spared her a heart attack? Would it be OK then?)

Hard choice. If it helps at all, I'm leaning heavily toward the same one.

Gotta stop this elephant somehow!

Oh, dear! If it makes you feel any better you can read an article by the late, great Molly Ivins from January 2006 entitled "I will not support Hillary Clinton for President".

That's what you get for voting early. You never know when one of them will say rape victims should just lie back and enjoy it. (Not that you're voting Republican or anything.)
