Wait, people don’t think I’m a Bush fan, do they? I’m really not. I don’t think it’s possible to be intelligently informed and a Bush fan. (Although it is possible to be intelligently informed and prefer Bush over Kerry.) I think the best you can do is be like a friend of mine who doesn’t think Bush is a good president but is voting for him in the hope that in his second term, he will somehow be better. Hope against reason if you ask me.

Like a lot of people it seems, I dislike both candidates. But I can’t bring myself to not vote. I’ve been big on voting the past few years, even for the obscure local elections that no one comes out for. So it would offend my civic pride to not vote in this one. But who to vote for, no clue yet.
