A vote for the goat

Posted on November 6, 2012 7:30 pm

Last night, I asked about the conflict I had regarding one particular local race. The Republican is a jackass, and the Democrat is a Democrat. Neither option was a good one. And, I didn’t want to leave it off my ballot.

A lot of you offered some really good suggestions. Most of you indicated that a vote for the Republican would be the best route, although a few of you offered the perspective of getting rid of a lame Republican, then kicking out the Democrat next election.

Both sides had good points.

So, what did I do?

Well, before I tell you, I need to make a confession. There were actually two races like that. Both at the county level, and both featuring jackass Republicans running against Democrats. I only mentioned one race, because the same rules applied. How I handled one would be the way I’d handle both. So, I only mentioned one race.

Now, having said that, here’s what I did.

I voted for a friend’s goat. Really.

You can write in candidates, so I did. For one of the races, I wrote in the name of my friends’ goat. Yes, their goat has a name. And a Facebook page. Really. And, now, one vote for a county government spot.

Oh, for the other county-wide race featuring a jackass Republican and a Democrat, I wrote in my cat.

I don’t expect the cat to win. I don’t expect the goat to win. But, if they did, they’d be a damn site better than the candidates on the ballot.

    Kind of Caligula-y, but okay. Makes sense. I was pondering the reasons people vote for corrupt jerks recently and came up with four. Your mileage may vary.

    Basil’s cat is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful feline I’ve ever known in my life.

    What’s the goat’s name? We must start on the next campaign sooner, give it a fighting chance.
