Let me attempt to use Jamestown's theme of poor leadership to segue into special Novemeber 7th plea: If you are in the United States, PLEASE, PLEASE GET OUT AND VOTE! And if you are in Tennessee, EXTRA-SPECIAL SUGAR-ON-TOP QUADRUPAL-PLUS PLEASE GET OUT AND VOTE! We just might actually have a shot acheiving the closest thing we have to a defense against the Bush Administration: bicameral gridlock.
Oh, and alsowise: Tennessee and several other states have these cute little amendments allowing the public to vote discrimination into the state constitution. Could we, as a country, stop acting like complete jackasses? Just for, like, a day?
