There's a place for people who laugh at nothing...

And I'm glad that I have caller ID.

I voted last week, and got it out of the way. I'm not all that happy with my choice, but then, there ain't a whole lot out there. I voted Republican, of course; I saw no point in choosing between a white female socialist and a black male socialist. Of course, voting Republican, I got to choose between RINO's, and that's not good, either.

That's the problem: Regardless of who runs in November, I lose. I can either vote for the Democrat, who I know will do the wrong thing, or the Republican, who I can't count on to do the right thing. I can vote third party, basically ensuring that my vote won't count (as if it does anyway). Or I can stay home.

The other possibility is to sell my vote to the highest bidder. At least that way there'll be something in it for me.

Too bad I can't vote for Ted Nugent. He's one of the few people in all of this that actually makes sense. "The foundation of freedom is economic freedom," he says, and thus proves he knows more about it than anyone else running. As HL Mencken once said, "Economic independence is the foundation of the only sort of freedom worth a damn." I don't hear this from the Republicans, and I for damn sure don't hear this from the other guys.

I'm talking to myself, of course.

It usually comes down to economics for me too. You probably heard that Hillary actually advocates freezing mortgage interest rates. Remembering that, and the history of price controls in general, will make it a little easier to vote for McCain.

I'll vote for McCain tomorrow morning, but without enthusiasm.

I say we write in Nuge. None of the others deserve it.
