Perry grandstanding in a church, signing that Defense of Marriage amendment--when he didn't need to sign it at all, when there was nothing to sign--I don't want to see that again.
So, how do I vote for change?
It isn't Kinky. Frustrating, but true. Kinky's not going to win. He's got 16% of the vote, if that.
The problem is, there's not going to be a run-off election. Texas doesn't require one. So, if 2/3 of the state votes against Perry, he still wins, because the remainder were split between Strayhorn, Bell and Friedman, and Perry has the biggest minority.
If you're passionate about Friedman's values, vote for Friedman. I just want change, so I voted for Bell, because that's the best bet for change for my money.
If it's "Anybody but the Republican" for you, please consider voting for the Democrat instead of the independent. Remember, it doesn't take a majority to win this one :( Stupid state.
