My mother just said that she's "leaning toward Bush". Unbelievable! She said she doesn't want to vote for Kerry because she doesn't want to be poor. News flash, Ma: You're already poor!

I shouldn't be surprised that someone who pays no attention to the issues would want to vote for Bush. The scary thing is that it proves that the right-wing marketeers are doing a good job. The issues don't matter; the only thing that matters is that "everybody" says if you vote for Kerry, he'll raise your taxes. TV commercials can't be wrong, can they? Maybe I can convince her to vote on November 3rd.

All I can say is it's a good thing we don't live in New Hampshire, where her vote could make a difference.
