Florida Primary


Ya'll I'se weary of polly-ticans.

This ain't no dramatization: We have 15 phone calls per day askin' us to vote in the primary for this'n or that'un candidate. I jes' doan answer the phone no mo...

SO today we's havin' the primary--I done tole off an exit pollster --an' now when ya hear predictions jes' know that the exit polls only reflect dingbats whose fool enough to yak wif' a exit snooper. Besides, some of us'uns din't go to elect nobody--we jes' needed to vote an an amendment.






Also, in my city, iffin' ya vote they puts a sticker on yore lapel so when ya git over to the grocery or the drugstore, or to Starbucks or wherever ya's headed--then folks praise ya fer bein' a fine American an' votin'--but then they as't ya who ya pulled the lever for!! Now really, ain't that
UN-American? Ain't there a reason we have PRIVATE booths to vote in??

Okay...thas' mah rant and I feels better.

Well in Australia we don't get a choice as to whether we vote or not. We get fined if we don't. We go to the polling booths and they cross our names off the list. I must admit if I didn't have to, I wouldn't because I didn't like any of them and hated giving any of them my vote.

Huh? Dang it, Gypsy Sugar, do they follow ya in to check that ya marked a name??

I din't vote fer nobody--only fer an amendment--but, ah, really? Aussies have no good candidates either? Then WHAR' is poor Aunty and Uncle gonna move when we need to pull an Alex Baldwin and announce we's "outa heah!" when a yicky mucky person gits in office?

I done suggested Uncle check wif' his local gubmint big-wig to see iffin' he could set up a Pork Rind manufacturing exchange program ...may hap come January we be learnin' how the Portugese or New Zealanders or (somebody) make Pork Rinds.

Pork Rind Hollow has a Starbucks??!! Sad, if true.

I was approached by an exit poller yesterday. When I learned for WHOM, I politely declined.

Our primary isn't until June. Which is good, because that's perfect weather for yet another of my spin-right-round-on-my-heels-in-utter-disgust outfits.

Troll Man, ain't no Starbucks down in the Hollow...we keeps a lid on that sorta thang, ya know--a few gators loose in a parkin' lot ain't the best thang fer bidness.

Moi, Sweet Pea, Aunty is comin' theah in June to see you in somethin' flouncy! But, ain't fair iffin' youse waerin' them heelies the kiddos have...nope, ya' better hav on some high steppin' shoes iffin' ya wanna be effective in utter disgust mode.

Hey Foamy Lady! Yeah, Darlin' ain't we a mite weary of all this--an ain't even had no convention yet.

Think of the money we could save iffin' they put the startin' line back to July?

I'se been s t r e t c h ed some last few days...sorry I ain't been round to visit.

Ooo, I envision a troupe of fashionably outfitted but highly indignant wimmin touring the country, showing up at every primary en route to spin disgustedly on their Louboutins. Or Manolos. Or Kors.

"As these high heels are our witness, we'll vote for NO candidate today!"

The Troll said...

Vote for the Troll!
