A Political Problem

Today I received my sample ballot for the Feb. 5 presidential primary.

Now, despite being fairly liberal on most issues, I'm a registered Republican. This is because damn near 3/4 of the county I live in is Republican, as are 3/4 of the candidates in the primaries. Florida only allows people to vote for those in their own party in primary elections, so if I want some say in who is chosen in the primary elections, I have to be registered Republican. Hence my registration.

I looked at the ballot today and didn't find a single soul who I could vote for with a straight face, much less a clear conscience.

Ah, yes, I got trouble...right here in River City....
