I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

I vited for Ron Paul today in the Utah primary. A protest vote but a vote just the same.

Romney pulled in his usual Stalin like numbers in Utah with 93 percent of the vote. My man Ron Paul came in second with 5 percent.

Good for you. And I think it's funny you did the Stalin/Romney comparison, rather than making me do it.

From Rob Murphy on Wed, Jun 27, 2012 at 17:01:25 from

Believe it or not, they actually had "elections" in the old USSR. They would actually announce with a straight face that Stalin had received 100% of the vote.

Romney's close!

From Jon on Wed, Jun 27, 2012 at 18:12:48 from

Yes, same thing in China.

Of course, they've somehow convinced us that our elections are more worthwhile because our votes for one of the two nearly-identical candidates from the two-headed superparty matters, and that things will somehow change for the better "if only we choose A instead of B."
