Stupor Tuesday

Stupor Tuesday is here.
With the Electoral College all but certain to give Georgia's votes to a Repub, Mardi Gras is the only chance to vote I will get this year.
I don't have to make up my mind until I step in the building, but I will probably hold my nose. The voting is in the cafetorium of my grammar school. It will not be the first time I hold my nose in there.
On Sunday, I had a chat with a Ron Paul guy. I asked if Dr. P was a white supremacist, and the RPG said no. He did say that there were a lot of scary looking black guys in Washington DC.
So, who to vote for?
Hillary Rodham and Mitt Romney are too gross for words.
Mike Huckabee and Ron Paul have statement value. Neither has a prayer to win, but you can make a statement with either one. Of course, neither is one that I care to support.
Which leaves us with John McCain and Barack Obama. When I hear Rush Limbaugh call McCain a liberal, it puts a smile on my face.
When I hear Obama orate with his silver tongue, it makes me wonder what was so bad about Hillary anyway.
It would be good to know who the Vice Presidential choices would be. This is important for an old geezer like McCain, or a cigarette smoking "former" cocaine user like Obama.
And isn't one former coke freak in the White House too many?
No one has a clue about the War in Babylon. I find Obama's opposition encouraging. I find McCain's kill them all clueless ness to be discouraging.
While Obama is a dynamic presence, I keep wondering who is pulling the strings on that puppet. The Ron Paul Guy says that Obama gets lots of special interest money, and I have no reason to doubt him.
I still have a couple of hours to think, before the showdown in the cafetorium. For now, it looks like Obama, but if Huckabee comes through with that fried squirrel I may have to rethink.

"I asked if Dr. P was a white supremacist, and the RPG said no. He did say that there were a lot of scary looking black guys in Washington DC."

CORRECTION: Ron Paul did not say or write this. It was writtent in his name by a ghost writer. Ron Paul's mistake was allowing someone to write in his name without supervision. The corporate media shills have been slamming Ron Paul with this because they can't find anything worse - you'd have heard about it.
Ron Paul is the only candidate who isn't owned by special interests.

Thank you for visiting.
It was the Ron Paul Guy (RPG) who I was talking to. He was a supporter of Dr. Paul who was working my neighborhood sunday morning.
I asked him if Dr. Paul was a white supremicist. RPG told the story of the newsletter article, where someone said that 95% of the black men in Washington DC had a criminal background. Rather than disavow this, the RPG told a story about when he was living in Washington DC and saw a few scary looking black men on a street corner.
I thought it strange that he would say something like this, in response to a question regarding the affiliations of his favorite candidate.
