Politics Makes Me Laugh

Texas Politics: According to an article in today's Houston Chronicle, Rep. Tom DeLay is still the Republican candidate for his Congressional seat by a federal judge's order, despite the fact that he withdrew from the race.

I don't have any problem with that; I'm at work and haven't had time to read the entire article. I'm sure the judge acted according to the law and proper election statutes. What annoys and amuses me is reading that the Democrats are 'pleased' by this judge's decision.

My ass.

Pleased, are you? Well, I can tell when someone is rushing to take advantage of a situation and act like gleeful vultures circling over a corpse. Though I'm sure the Republicans would be equally 'pleased' were the situation reversed.

If I lived in DeLay's district, I would cast my vote for the Libertarian candidate this November--or the Green candidate, if there were one.

I suppose one would call that irresponsible voting, because I would not necessarily be voting for the candidate whose principles most follow my own. I know nothing about either the Democrat or the Libertarian candidate in that particular election.

But even less than irresponsible voting do I like the idea that a political party can presume that they have an election in the bag because the major opponent's party cannot replace a withdrawn candidate.

It is this sort of arrogance that causes me to despise politics.

Though this could, of course, be a clever plot by the Libertarians to capture the Republican vote. You sneaky devils, you! (g)

Hey now, you never know if a Libertarian is reading your posts... ;-)

Heh...But I like the Libertarians. (g) I was actually rather pleased to see that a Libertarian was the third candidate. It would be interesting to see them win the seat, just to watch the fur fly.

Hiiii!

I hope you're feeling better!

Which e-mail address do you check the most? I was going to email you about our characters!

Let me know :)

Michelle--Oooh! Yes--Send your email to: aerdensrw@yahoo.com

That's the one I check. And let me know in my journal if you send it there. Sometimes, I've found that letters will go to my Bulk mail folder, in with all the spam, and then I never see them.
