ideas from yesterday not to forget

  • Vote exchange program website for Buchanan voters in Palm Beach County; we'll vote for Buchanan in MA if you'll vote for Kerry in FL.
  • The way to make a PDA watch work.
  • The "I did the Blarney Stone" t-shirt

In other news, listening to this Renee Olstead album on Rhapsody, I think I'll be buying a CD or two of hers...  but there's no way that's a fifteen-year old singing on these tracks.

Last night was fun, went to a tame bachelor party, at Boston Billiards Club.  A word to the wise, the two- and three- table rooms look a lot more comfortable than their four-table room was.  But it was good catching up with some folks I hadn't seen in a while, and over the course of the evening I had something like five beers, and one of those test tubes of strawberry-flavored liquor they bring around periodically there.  This morning I have a mild hangover that I've been dozing to make go away... 

That mild hangover, coupled with the fact that my butt feels bruised again, is motivating me to take the wimp's way out today, and drive to work.  That's fine, too, since I should bring my gym bag home over the weekend and replenish the clothing supplies contained therein.

Musical tonight, parties tomorrow, wedding Sunday, karaoke Monday.  Work today, probably helping paint tomorrow morning...  A full weekend indeed.

Well, I didn't say who, maybe this is the same couple as one you've already heard of?

Buchanan voters voting for Kerry? Sure, they may be trying to send a message to Bush, but I can't imagine they find Kerry at all palatable.

Unless of course butterfly ballots are involved...

I have the funny feeling I'm falling for something by even responding, though.

Some people will always complain
I've seen the butterfly ballots, and I've used 'connect the arrow' ballots, and I think the former was much more confusing than the later. Some people will complain about any design, and some people will be confused no matter what you do. Maybe I'm underestimating the too-old-to-see-or-write-straight factor.

Yeah, no shit. Vote exchanges work only if two parties get something they want. Nobody thinks a vote for buchanan in MA will matter, but everyone knows a vote in FL for kerry will matter... if we sent them $20 each, that might do it, except there's no way to confirm if the deal went through, and no repercussions for welching. Also buying votes (directly) is illegal.

Indirect buying of votes is also illegal. ;)

Vote exchange is illegal.

Leaving aside the legalities, why on earth would you trust the word of a Buchanan voter?
