a further post on the primary...
so, i didn't go vote yesterday. i fucked up, i'm still registered in the wrong county and with the shift i worked yesterday i couldn't make it to the polls before they closed. no excuse, just a reason.

of course, i'm one of about 15,000 pa conservatives that have a "reason". and we are the "reason" that arlen specter is still in office, at least until november.

but i do want to point out, last night 49% of pa republicans said "screw you" to a 4 term incumbent. we may not have gotten the candidtate we wanted, but was there a message sent? i'm going to go with a big fat hairy "yes" on that one. it's a message with national resonance, and a message with special resonance to pa republican candidates. arlen is allready claiming that the rift has been fixed, but i'm highly sceptical. he says he isn't going to run next time, but if he wants to maintain his legimacy within the pa republican party, he better be careful how he votes over the next four years. and the next pa republican to run for office will surely have this race in mind.

it's a step in the right direction, anyway.

and hopefully, the other 15,000 conservatives in this state have learned the same lesson as i, and we won't let something like this happen again.


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
