"I'm Against It!"

Today is election day in Texas. We have no bastards to throw out... well actually we have many, but not the opportunity to do so for still another year. Today it's just a series of propositions to amend the constitution, the most controversial of which is prop two, which will re-ban gay marriage.

So off to the polls we went this morning with Groucho Marx's voice singing in my head:
"I don't know what they have to say,
It makes no difference anyway,
Whatever it is, I'm against it!
No matter what it is or who commenced it,
I'm against it!"
Surprisingly, my precinct was not using those cool little electronic voting machines that turn all votes cast into votes for the incumbent so I had to actually use a chisel to carve my vote into the stone tablet, but considering the backwards nature of the thinking that went into prop two, it seemed somehow appropriate.

I then affixed my little 'I Voted' sticker to my shirt and went outside whistling along with Groucho, thinking, "Well, I voted against it, but next time I think I'll vote against the other pronouns," as I ashed an imaginary cigar on the sidewalk.
