sUpEr tUEsDaY

We will go out and vote today. At least today I don't have to worry about slipping up and remind Mick today is election day, if he remembers to vote my vote gets cancelled out. We will go into different booths today. NO one guessed the candidate that matched the most with my views. In fact, my candidate is no longer a candidate. Not sure what that says about my political views. I'll miss you John Edwards. I do have a nice Valentine gift in mind that I wanted to put together so we will have a winner after all. I will write down the names of everyone who guessed, I'll close my eyes and pick a name. A thanks for participating prize. I do so LOVE all the comments onto my Blog. Have a great day and for anyone in a state that can vote, GET OUT and VOTE.

You were gonna vote for "Y'all Boy"? I guess that only leaves you two candidates to consider, now. I'll vote in the same booth with Mick. I am Pro-Babies'-Choices!

dont forget it is also mardi gras aka fat tuesday! today one of my law professors brought in a mardi gras king cake which has a toy baby baked in it. whoever gets the slice with the toy baby is crowned king or queen of the celebration...just make sure you dont choke!!

Mardi Gras is always a fun thing to celebrate! Let us know how you make out with the crowning Kristen. I have never heard of king cake.

Well, Super Tuesday is over and only McPain, Osama, and the Wicked Witch are left.

One thing we know for sure... our taxes are going up!

Tough choice: Democratic candidate = Dove/socialist. Republican = Hawk/socialist. Ummm... third party anyone?

Re: mardi gras cakes - someone brought one to work a few years ago. I got the darn baby, but there was nothing about being king. I was just told it meant I had to bring the cake the next year. Lousy tradition. I let it lapse.

When I lived in New Orleans, you avoided getting the baby. Like Jo--, oops, I mean - The Mad Tern says, you save money that way. Besides, I'd rather have REAL cake! A King Cake is more like a coarse sweet bread. People started buying them after the Feast of the Epiphany (1/6) and didn't stop until Fat Tuesday, by which time, everyone was fat. I think they sell them at Price Chopper, if anyone's interested.

Hey Angry Bird,
The Huckster is still in it!

Mau, if I'd known the rules at the time, I'd have thrown the baby away. I didn't know it was in there and almost broke a tooth on it.

Which Huckster is still in it? If you mean the guy from Little Rock, I'd prefer to forget about anything that was ever inside that Governer's mansion. Somehow, it seems there must be a better way to pick presidential candidates besides asking Arkansans for their hometown favorites.

I don't want to pay for college aid to illegal aliens. Also, I don't think a bible school and a few years as governor of Arkansas (or "gouverneur" as they say it in the King Cake State) is adequate experience to run my country.

Hey Angry Bird, go easy. I didn't say I would vote for him! Just telling you what your options are. After I voted Tuesday, I walked behind what I can only assume to be a husband and wife, since they were arguing loudly. The wife was saying, "You can't vote for him. He screwed around." The husband said, "Would you rather have someone who's been there before and know what you're getting, or someone who will be a total surprise?" Can you believe that they are only considering that they are voting for Bill and not the Wicked Witch? I knew people were voting for Hillary to get Bill back, but these people weren't even talking like Hillary was part of the equation! No wonder she has so much support! Like Grampy says, she should be president. Why should the people of NY suffer with her all by ourselves?

The Mad Tern said...

Sorry, Mau, I didn't mean to sound Angry. I was "going easy," but it didn't come across that way. I know you have more sense than to vote for the Huckster.

I love Grampy's comment. It would be funnier if it weren't true.
