Raissa hit the nail on the head in the last post.
You are so lucky? you can vote twice!
This is true.? Had I elected to attend the Republican caucus I could have voted twice.? Sounds a little unconstitutional doesn’t it.? Well hell, when was the last time our Republican President did anything totally by the book.? They have a tendency to make it up as they go along.
In Washington State 51% of the delgates are selected using the primary vote.? (that ballot I put through the shredder)? 49% are selected from the caucus this afternoon.? If you signed the Republican oath you were able to vote in the primary and caucus.? That’s right ladies and gentlemen… that is two times the voting fun.
Sadly, I disagree with this method so I attended the Democrat caucus.? Did you just fall out of your chair?? I know my grandfather did.? It was a neat experience I must say.? There were hundreds of people packed into a little church basement shoving their way through to sign their names.? At the designated time we were ushered into another room by precinct and supposedly that’s where the fun was supposed to happen.? I thought it was more like a big Democrat cluster fuck.? No one really knew how it should work and then they whipped out the Democrat
Handbook Manifesto to explain to the people how that whole new fangled caucus system worked.
The funniest part was in the example the guy read out of the Manifesto.? It went something like this:
This precinct is allowed 19 delegates.? Say 37 members show up to caucus from precinct 421 (the man was reading this to nearly 150 people)…
I was a little proud to see the Obama side a little larger than the Clinton side.? There’s my plug for the guy and that’s all you’ll get out of me.? Evah.? To say the least it was an interesting experience and one I would like to do again.
In more fun news, the trusty husband and I went out on a bona fide date tonight.? Dinner and a movie.? We paid a whopping $1.36 for our dinner since we had a gift certificate and we saw “Fool’s Gold.”? I would have liked an action flick, but this was the only decent movie playing at the time we wanted.? It was cute in an entertaining, I didn’t have to think much kinda way.
