I figure that when November rolls around I might as well write myself in when I vote for the Senator from Tennessee, since:
a) I’d STILL sooner take a cheese grater to my testicles than vote for Bob Corker.
b) The official Democratic Senate candidate, Mark Clayton, is a certifiable whack-a-doodle, as much as any Republican short of Todd Akin.
c) Said candidate has been disavowed by the Tennessee Democratic Party.
d) Said Tennessee Democratic Party STILL hasn’t, for its “write-in” admonition, vetted or circled the wagons around any other specific candidate within the party, all of whom are basically unknowns even at this stage in the game.
e) Not like I could do any worse of a job than any current member of Congress.
Since the Tennessee Democratic Party didn’t care enough to even bother to pay attention to the race, then I will be voting for the Green Party candidate for U.S. Senate.
His name is Martin Pleasant.
That’s his web site so you can get some info on him. I’m voting straight-Democratic Party all the way, except for U.S. Senate. Martin Pleasant has my vote for Senate.
