Adventures in Kerryland. Not sure what else to call the day in Minneapolis. The poll where I was serving as a challenger was in the heart of Kerry territory. Fortunately, it was pretty uneventful, and a smaller precinct.
There was one incident that I must share. Some dweeb came in muttering how it all didnt matter, and something about Standard Oil. Okay, whats this all about. He went on, while collecting his ballot, in an attempt to enlighten those present how the Secretary of State for Eisenhower was the chair (or some such) of the Rockefeller Foundation; then how the Secretary of State for JFK was also at one time the head (or some such) of the Rockefeller Foundation; next on his list of Rockefeller connections was Kissinger. By this time everyone in the place had had enough and the election judges informed him that he could not carry on this line of speech, as that is what he was doing, and I realize now, attempting to influence the vote. No other voters were present. This, um, nutcase proceeded to get rather indignant, and defiant, made some cutting comments before departing. I suppose we can guess who he voted for.
There was also a DFLer there as a poll challenger. This schmuck kept going on how he was there to watch me, and how no one trusts each other any more. Lets see, my job there is to help ensure a fair election. His job is to watch me. He doesnt trust me because I am a Republican, I dont trust him because he is an idiot.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, it is time to get ready to go out and party, and celebrate. I have no doubt what tonights outcome will be. Bush will win.
More later tonight. Tine to party.
