Okay, I’m in

I was really starting to sweat this; I wrote away for my absentee ballot weeks and weeks ago. I wanna be a part of the revolution, dammit!

Rhode Island politics — for once! — look interesting this year. I could almost wish I’d kept my registration there for one more cycle.

But no. I own property in Tennessee. I pay taxes in Tennessee. My family is in Tennessee. And, most importantly, Tennessee politics is nuttier’n a squirrel’s rectum in a circus tent.

Two words: Basil Marceaux. Treat yourself to a trip to his campaign website.

I must say, he makes a tempting offer: VOTE FOR ME AND IF I WIN I WILL IMMUNE YOU FROM ALL STATE CRIMES FOR THE REST OF YOU LIFE! Never know; could come in handy. It takes a serious man to make his campaign promises in all caps.

Then there’s Zach Wamp, who totally deserves to be governor for having the awesomest name since Buff Orpington.

Too bad I skipped the primary. George T. Erdel of District 6 assured me he was my “Tea Party Democrat.” I don’t know if his campaign website used to be a campaign website, but it’s now all about Islam = Sharia. Right nutty fringe, wrong party.

Man I’m going to need some help making a choice. Anybody know any good Tennessee political blogs?

At least I know how to vote on the proposed amendment to the state constitution:

The citizens of this state shall have the personal right to hunt and fish, subject to reasonable regulations and restrictions prescribed by law. The recognition of this right does not abrogate any private or public property rights, nor does it limit the state’s power to regulate commercial activity. Traditional manners and means may be used to take non-threatened species.

My choices are No, Yes or Yeeeeee-haaaaa!

Good weekend, everyone.
