I live in Crook County now and I felt like I was a criminal when I asked for a GOP ballot. I was sneared at by the election judge and she ended up screwing up the ballot by not initialing it.

Needless to say, I miss living DuPage County.

Yes, Free Republic is moving very slowly, if at all. And while DuPage Country doesn’t care if you ask for a GOP ballot, it took my husband and I ten full minutes to get through to vote, and we were the first in line (and voted earlier — different day!). We’ve got tooooooo many senior citizens running our polls. And when a youngster is there to help out, they just brush them aside like they are useless “kids” or something. Anyway, we got our two in for Adam and two for Patrick, so that’s all that counts in the end.

My connection failed several minutes ago. I said, “OK” to sending a report to Microsoft so that my connection could be “made better” in so many words. I tried the link again and here I am. Something fishy or my away from home location. It really shouldn’t matter once I have a connection.

I don’t vote for people who are unopposed and when I tried to put my completed ballot in the machine it was rejected. A “judge” explained to me that it was rejected because the machine wouldn’t take it if any of the spaces were left blank and asked if I wanted to leave it that way. I told him indeed I did. So he explained to me that he would have to over ride the machine, he acted as if he were aggravated with me for not filling the ballot out all the way. I told him to “over ride away mate”.

Trip to New Hampshire where he lectured Americans to stop spending money in Las Vegas instead of paying their mortgage and stop buying boats instead of saving to send their children to college.

The man is certifiable.

Of the GOP candidates, An-gee-EFF-ski should perform best in Cook County because of the Polish thing. So his votes will come in late. You will probably see a surge for Dillard as votes come in from DuPage.

Andrzejewski. He is Polish, so he'll get a surge when returns come in from Cook County, which will be late. He's a dream candidate for Republicans, honestly. He's conservative, so he can get the support of the base, and he's Polish, so he can get a lot of blue collar voters on the south side. Here's to hoping he wins.
