  1. Just to clarify, the election in question was in Walton, Kentucky, not Cincinnati. (I kind of freaked out there for a minute because I didn’t recall voting in any council races in Cincinnati.)

    Selling one’s vote may be the only we have left of making the candidates hold their word…

    I LOVE the old Popeye cartoons – especially the black and white ones. Toot toot!

    How about just disqualifying the candidate whose spouse can’t be bothered to vote?

      the way i heard it, it wasn’t that she couldnt’ be bothered, it was that she had a full schedule that day and simply didn’t make it to the polls on time, and the early voting period was shorter this year.

      How about disqualifying people from “Running a Blog in a Public Place” who think marriage means you can control what your spouse does?

        Why? They all parade them around like prize pigs at the fair, implying that they’re assets to the campaign and the administration.
