Scary thought

I'll be shocked if the turnout in today's special election even reaches the 10 percent predicted. Except for the poll workers, my precinct was empty when I voted earlier today. I didn't expect to see a lot of voters, but one of the people there said "only a handful" had been in all morning. That was at 1 in the afternoon!

What election? Supervisor of Elections and a few city council seats which were vacated by people running for SoE.

You'd think after all of the unfounded criticism the SoE received after the 2000 (2002 and 2004) elections from the Lefty Loons, the Democrats would have a large field vying for that office.

Somewhere in the back of my head I realized it, but it didn't really hit until I looked at today's ballot. Of the six running for the office, only one is a Dem. And he's one of the Loons!

Dear gawd, that's a scary thought. Dems who vote only the party line showing up today.

CORRECTION: I don't know where my brain was yesterday. My thanks to whoever spotted it and chased it back home.

Two Democrats were on yesterday's SoE ballot: Andy Johnson (the Loon) and Warren Jones.

UPDATE: Since none of the candidates in yesterday's three races won a majority, we all get to go back again next month to choose between the two largest vote-getters.
