Somewhere between the Angie Paccione and Marilyn Musgrave mud wrestling, I sort of gave up. I quit caring about which ways Bob was taking it (apparently, both) and just tuned out. My fingers automatically went to the mute button whenever a political commercial aired, which means we watched a lot of TV without sound for really long time.
So, today, while the fair citizens of Colorado are voting for the legalization of marijuana and against school improvements, I will be blissfully unaware. And, tomorrow, I won't complain. I won't complain about a voting contingency that cares more about maryjane than Mary and Sue. Nope. Not one criticism out of me. And, that's saying a lot.
***UPDATE: I've decided to vote. I can't keep my mouth shut about important issues that are affecting my community. So, I have to vote in order to secure my right to gripe about the idiots who (may) decide our state Constitution actually needs to define marriage as a union between "one man and one woman." Come on. I am so over that language.
Some other important issues at bar:
- Amendment 42: Colorado Minimum Wage
- Amendment 40: Term Limits for Supreme court and Court of Appeals Judges
- Referendum I: Domestic Partnerships
I'll let you know how it all turns out in my post-election rant (oh, yeah. I vote, therefore I get to rant).
