more politics

I voted, but I "wasted" one vote. And now I'm sorry.

Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Seattle) got my vote of course, altho' I don't think he actually needed it. His so-called opponent seems like some veck nobody ever heard of.

But I didn't vote for Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), who appears to be auditioning for the earmark princess tiara. I wasn't going to vote for that real estate guy running against her either, so I did a write-in and voted for Pedro.

And now I regret it. That one is going to be really close, and it pains me to think I might have contributed in however a tiny, small way to that schmo Dino Rossi going to the Senate.

It's the same old quandry as always. The Democrats are uninspiring, and there will tend to be a lot of 'em any progressive person is tempted to reject. But then, if you don't swallow hard and vote for those Democrats you don't like, those damn Republicans get in.

You can't win, but Karl Rove and John Boehner and D boyz can.
