Don't teach me about politics and government...

...Just tell me who to vote for. Today is election day in Jackson, and I don't have a clue who to vote for in most of the elections. The candidates running for state representative and senator in my district have been bombarding my mailbox with mudslinging flyers for the last several weeks with the result that now I don't want to vote for anybody. Gee, thanks, guys. You all have exhibited bad grammar, terrible graphic design and unprofessional behavior. I will be leaving a lot of boxes unmarked when I go to the polls today. Meanwhile, dear reader, I leave you with this shocking photo evidence that Mississippi State Senatorial candidate David Blount fathered a child we've never seen on his promotional flyers.

You be the judge.

Ha! They do look alike!

You show more patience than Guitta and I do with those flyers. We immediately deposit them into the recycling bin. I had no idea who to vote for either.

Hey, I can't find you at goodreads. Could you send me your email address?

See, that is why the JT and Dave Show is so helpful. Weekdays from 11-1 on Supertalk 97.3. :) I was actually far more opinionated this go round than ever before (at least state-wide).

David Blount lives at the end of St. Mary (not the Riverside end). His children made a sign to put in his window.

I think I'm just about the only person I know of that would get delayed because of a pipeline explosion! :-) Except maybe Allison ;-) here's another link:

Hey there! I like your blog! Is it okay if I subscribe?

(By the way, I love the bit about the terrible graphic design. Painfully true.)
