The Election, Finally

I am going off today to vote for Anna Little in her insurgent campaign against Congressman Frank Pallone. She's an unabashed Tea Partier - here in New Jersey! - and seems like a decent enough sort. I'm no knee-jerk Tea Party supporter. I generally support their ideas, but they've put forth a few really poor candidates. Still, that's partially just because they're inexperienced in the world of politics, and that's not a bad thing. In fact, I'd say it's a good thing, net-net.

Little can't be any worse than Pallone, who - unlike many of his Democrat colleagues - has been campaigning fully in support of Obamacare, the Stimulus, and all the other boondoggles of the 111th Congress. The polling is unclear, but Little might just have a shot. In many ways, while this individual race isn't all that important, it can be a bellwether for the hoped-for Republican surge. For if Little wins, or even is within a point or two, then it's going to be a huge night.

More blogging tonight as polls come in. For now, this is my emblem:

  1. I can't vote this year. Deprived of my right

    As far as I know, I cannot legally vote in New Jersey (even if I had used an absentee ballot), because I am no longer a NJ resident. And, I cannot vote here in Delaware, because we could not register until we had a signed lease -- at which point it was too late to register. So, no voting for us this time around. You should be able to throw the bums out without me.
