Sheep Tremble and Here Come the Votes




Virginia has its Gubernatorial election next week, and I will probably be throwing away my vote on a write in, since I hate Deeds and McDonnell. I'm thinking of voting for William Jennings Bryan.

Anyways, a lot of media is covering this election as though it were a report card on the President. This will be true for 2010's Congressional elections, but it's bs to apply it here. Fact is, Virginia has a long standing precedent of voting for the party opposite the President. You have to go back to Gerald Ford in 1974 to find a Virginia Governor's election that was won by the same party as the President, and that President wasn't even elected to either executive office! So when McDonnell wins by a 55-40 count or whatever it is, don't think about it in terms of Obama, because being in the White House's back yard always results in being pissed at DC. I mean, really, how are you supposed to compete with that yard work? It's professionally managed! Of course your house is going to look like shit next to his. So Virginians vote the other way.

Why? Because fuck 'em, that's why.
