Full Of Sound and Fury

*struts around proudly showing off I VOTED sticker*

My sticker actually says I MADE FREEDOM COUNT - I VOTED. Damn skippy. I waited in the line for precinct 617 (which is what is listed on my voter registration card) for 45 minutes, which I didn't think was too bad for 11 a.m. I got up to the line for E-H last names and handed over my driver's license and then was told that I'm "not in this precinct."

I just KNEW those people were going to try and suppress my vote!

Me: I wonder if he missed it, or decided not to go
Jake: I wonder if I should kill myself or not
Me: not yet, but soon
Jake: soon, very soon

So I whip out my actual voter registration card and show it. Which is when I'm told that it's an old card, and they've had lots of people from my street come in with old cards. We're really supposed to be in precinct 654. Fortunately, that precinct was 10 feet away on the other side of the church auditorium.

In conclusion, my vote has been cast and my civic duty performed. Now I feel qualified to bitch and moan about the results of this election for all eternity.

Me: god dammit, why couldn't Al-Jazeera release this yesterday???
Me: Link to He's an Evil (But Smart) Bastard That Bin Laden story
Jake: yeah read that.... I think it makes a lot of sense
Jake: he's a smart evil bastard
Jake: just like bush
Jake: well
Jake: bush is a stupid evil bastard
Me: well that's the thing - he's always been smart, and that's the biggest problem
Me: these people aren't stupid, unfortunately
Jake: As for President Bush's Iraq policy, Bin Laden said, "the darkness of black gold blurred his vision and insight, and he gave priority to private interests over the public interests of America.

"So the war went ahead, the death toll rose, the American economy bled, and Bush became embroiled in the swamps of Iraq that threaten his future," bin Laden said.

Jake: he's absolutely correct
Jake: he had a master plan all along
Jake: he knew bush would be stupid enough to do it
Me: yep, and this part too
Me: "All that we have to do is to send two mujahedeen to the furthest point east to raise a piece of cloth on which is written al Qaeda, in order to make generals race there to cause America to suffer human, economic and political losses without their achieving anything of note other than some benefits for their private corporations," bin Laden said.
Jake: yep
Jake: we are a joke
Me: we are puppets
Jake: oh yeah, and I heard on the radio this morning that bush and kerry spent a combined total of 600 MILLION DOLLARS on campaigns
Me: marionettes
Jake: what a bloody waste
Me: dancing for bin Laden
Jake: I think I'm gonna move to Canada
Me: I'm moving to New Zealand
Jake: ha
Me: Thousands of sheep ... another four years of Bush ...
Me: Thousands of sheep ... another four years of Bush ...
Me: it's not a difficult choice
Jake: sheep in single file
Me: amen, brother
