The Logic of Politics

Politics are weird. This election is giving me a headache. It's a good thing Tina Fey is so damn funny.

Yesterday, I saw a billboard for the Washington state governor's race. It said "Voting for Obama? Washington needs change too. Vote Dino Rossi."

Why is that weird?

It actually said "Vote Dino Rossi (GOP)."

Yes, that's right folks. Our Republican gubernatorial candidate is appealing to the fact that Washington state (a notorious "blue" state) will likely be throwing its hat in with the Democratic hopeful Obama as a reason to cast our vote for him. Change. Hey, that message has been working for the Democrats . . .

I'm sure Ronald Reagan is rolling in his grave. If he's paying attention, that is.

Respectfully submitted,

The Wife
