Politics BalMar Ballot

The thing I love about mail-in ballots is that you can incorporate voting into your schedule any way you like.
I voted over the course of the weekend: For example, I voted against the $17.8 billion roads and transit measure live on David Goldstein’s radio show last Saturday night in an attempt to give Goldy a stroke.
Goldy’s rabidly for the measure. I’m against it. Erica and I debated him on the air. I’ll post an mp3 of our argument tomorrow when it’s available.
I also voted for Venus Velazquez at the BalMar in Ballard (the BalMar is Velazquez’s Minneapolis airport men’s room if you will, the scene of the crime.)
I went there last night, had two drinks, like Velazquez, while marking my ballot for her. (Unfortunately, our waitress wasn’t the same one who waited on Velazquez, so we couldn’t get any sordid details.) Nice place, though. The mahi-mahi tacos I had were filling and good.
Despite Velazquez’s blunder (failing to make sure she had a designated driver), I still think she’s the better candidate than her rival Bruce Harrell. (Here’s our endorsement.)
After my two drinks—I don’t think I was impaired—I drove the Flexcar back home down Market.
