The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Recommendation recap

While David Letterman was still at NBC, he sat for a Playboy Interview, and he was asked why he was reluctant to give political endorsements. He said something to the effect that he'd hate to imagine someone thinking, "Well, hell, Letterman likes him, let's vote for the son of a bitch."

I can't imagine anyone taking my advice, but one last time, this are my suggestions for 2004. Do with them what you will.

President: George W. Bush (R)

US Senate: Sheila Bilyeu (I)

US House: Bert Smith (D)

Corporation Commission: John Wylie (D)

State House 87: John Morgan (D)

Oklahoma County Sheriff: Stuart Earnest (R)

Oklahoma County Clerk: Carolynn Caudill (R)

State Questions:
YES: 705, 706, 707, 708, 712, 714, 715
NO: 711, 713

I admit to knowing nothing of import regarding the judges running on a retention ballot, and make no recommendations for same — though my own practice has been to return to office anyone who hasn't given me a reason not to.

Where's Bruce with his denunciation of your right-wing extremism?

I've always thought of myself as a moderate; I suppose the breakdown here (3-3-1) serves as corroborating evidence.

I did briefly entertain the idea of reproducing my service records on the site, but decided that they wouldn't be of much interest to most readers, and might simplify the task of identity theft were someone so inclined.

CG is NOT an extremist by any stretch of the imagination. In most matters he's a reasonable guy.

I'm sure he has his reasons for voting Bush. I've done my best to outline what I feel is an overwhelming case against Bush. I don't push Kerry on people, but seeing as how we have few options to the contrary its a little like having two flavors of ice cream in the freezer and being deathly allergic to chocolate.

Every day I can think of a new reason why Bush is wrong for America, and I've written about it more times than most people want to hear. I am honestly interested in why people otherwise independent thinking people would WANT to vote for Bush.

I KNOW why the Christians are voting for Bush, they make sense, even if I don't agree with them.

Bruce, I tend to be concerned as to why otherwise independent thinking people would WANT to vote for Kerry.

So it appears we have a Mexican Standoff, doesn't it?
