The Potomac Primaries

Color the Vulture underwhelmed. And disappointed.

First, the highlights. Props to Virginia voters, who almost beat the "let's vote for the front-runner" mentality in the GOP race. Props to Barack Obama for absolutely SLAUGHTERING "666" in all three races.

Now the lowlights. Brickbats to the voters of my adopted home state of Maryland, who not only overwhelmingly voted for McCommie in the GOP race...but also delivered more votes to EX-candidate Mitt Romney than to Ron Paul.

Sometimes I'm so ashamed to be a Merlander. *sigh*

But, I have to say, yesterday was the first time since 1984 that I've voted for a candidate for president and actually felt PRIDE in having done so. When I saw that blue 'X' on the touch screen next to Ron Paul's name, I felt like I had done something GOOD. I wish more of my fellow Merlies had done the same...
