rock the vote

Today is one of my most favorite days – Election Day. It’s actually the primary, but I get excited whenever I have the opportunity to vote. I’m completely aware that I am a nerd.

Just as Victoria Beckham no doubt encouraged all her famous friends to attend her hot footballer husband’s first game with the LA Galaxy, I’m encouraging you to support MY husband and vote today. No, he’s not running for office, but he does work for the state’s Elections Division. And those shiny new voting machines you used today? You can (sort of) thank Kell for those.

Since this is my blog, and I can post whatever I want, I’m endorsing my friend, Charlie Ross, for Lieutenant Governor for the state of Mississippi. I am sure Sen. Ross is ecstatic to have my overwhelming support and appreciates the astounding readership of my site. Lt. Governor is an extremely powerful position in Mississippi’s legislation, and In addition to my coveted support, he has been endorsed by the NRA (Claire, your dad should love that) and Mississippi’s Right to Life among many other organizations. He’s been a state Senator for 10 years, has an impeccable voting record and was recently named “National Legislator of the Year.” Of course, there will be another election in November, but in order to get the right candidates on the fall ballot, we have to take a step in the right direction in the beginning.

On another note, it’s Matt Armstrong’s birthday today! If you see this handsome devil, wish him a Happy 27th B’day!

This post makes me sad since I can't vote in Mississippi anymore. My loyalties are still there. Always. Tear.
