Sandy decided to cast her vote and there isn’t a single GOP Voter I.D. law or voter suppression effort out there that can stop her. Sandy also decided to get involved in the campaign for Prez. I don’t know what impact she will have but she certainly has most of the media coverage today. One thing is for sure, if the Prez wins, Tea Baggers will call foul and demand a rerun claiming Sandy originated in Kenya.
The Chron E-Board yesterday said that voting the straight ticket is a disaster and a menace. I don’t know about it being the end of the world. Here is from the E-Board:
Straight ticket voting is entirely too widespread, not only in Harris County, but all across Texas. It is a menace to our democracy beyond even robo-calls and pollsters calling at supper time.
I’ll say this. If any of those running on the GOP side tell me that the Tea Party if full of s__t , that they support The DREAM Act, that they don’t have a problem with marriage equality, and that they think that cutting education funding was a huge mistake, and that they know that The President was born in Hawaii, then maybe I’ll consider not voting the straight ticket.
My baby don’t care, my baby don’t care. My baby don’t care!

The best interviewer in campaign politics bar none is CNN’s Soledad O’Brien. She shreds the talking points. Here is from a Politico story today:
O’Brien says this isn’t a partisan objective: “It’s about doing a good interview,” she said. “If someone is lying to you on the left, or if someone is lying to you on the right, as a journalist you’re going to be embarrassed because you didn’t catch a lie. You have to catch people if their spinning you. You can’t just let people come on and spin and spin and spin you.”
The Yankees scored 18 runs of course against the Giants in Game 2 of the 1936 World Serious.
