So this Tuesday is an election day in Pennsylvania. Exciting huh? Well, not so much. You see, it’s a primary. As I am registered as an independent, neither the republican party, nor the democratic party really gives a damn about my opinion on things and therefore I don’t get to vote for anything fun in this week’s election. But that’s ok, because it’s just to decide candidates, not for the actual mayor, right? Well, yes, except I also live in Pittsburgh, and no republican has won anything so much as president of the third grade class in this city in the last 947 years. So pretty much everything will be decided by the democratic primary and the actual election in November is kinda non-issue. Wheee.
What I really hate though is commercial like the one I saw tonight. See, we have this odd phenomenon here here where people running for Judge, don’t really declare their party. So Judge So-and-so runs as both a democrat and a republican, that way if you are one of those "pull the party line" voters, you end up voting for him no matter what. That’s the main reason I started the whole "vote for me in all non-opposed elections" campaign. There should always be a choice.
But now, the more I think about it. I’d be a great judge. A new school judge. No robes. No gavels. Just a lone crusader dishing out two-fisted frontier justice. Evil doers beware!
Pipe-hitting Judge Maverick! I’d rock!
So you know, if you’re in Pennsylvania, especially if you’re in Pittsburgh, I’d appreciate your support at the polls on Tuesday.
I’m Chris Maverick, and I approve this message, BIATCH!
