Below is a page from a 4-page flyer I just received from the Jolie Justus campaign. Justus is the pro-embryonic cloning & killing, pro-ACLU, pro-homosexual, pro-abort, pro-nanny state candidate. As you can see, she's running the "I'm the only true liberal" campaign.
Now, I actually have a Democrat's sign in my yard at the moment: Mike Flaherty's. He's the breeders' candidate. Or so I thought. Now, I do tend to avoid signs or bumper stickers or anything like that; it's just not the reactionary thing to do, is it? Admittedly, I had an Alan Keyes 2000 sticker on my car for a while (back in 2000), and I tried to get hold of a Peroutka yard sign (without success) last fall. But I figured I'd make an exception this year, and I think I'll actually vote in the Democratic primary, for the first time ever, this year. In Kansas City, Missouri, there's no point in voting in the Republican primary, and there isn't a Jacobite or Carlist slate here. With a few exceptions, all our races are decided in August, in the Democratic primary.
So I'm going to vote in the Democratic primary. And I was going to vote for the breeders' candidate, Mike Flaherty. But then Jolie's making it hard for me. Her little flyer IS compelling, for Jason Klumb. I didn't know, for instance, about Jason Klumb's support for concealed carry of firearms. I thought he was just some Democratic schmuck. But if he's a pro-gun Democratic schmuck, as Jolie and her friends say, then, hey! Can I be assured that my pro-life guy is also pro-gun? After all, you should see the scary people where I pick up my dry cleaning. I'd feel a lot better if I knew my pro-life state senator would keep it legal for me to pack heat in places like that.
Anyways. I guess I'll pull the lever (or, as we do here, punch the chad) for Mike Flaherty all the same. After all, Flaherty owns a bar. Does Klumb own a bar?
BTW, where's this Jolie Justus getting all her money for these slick, union-printed 4-page flyers? Oh yeah, her demographic has a lot more disposable income than breeders' households.
