Damn. If only Paul ran as a Democrat. That registration, I could handle for a couple of months (so long as I could switch back immediately after the primary, and then take a long, long bath in a vat of warm Lysol). The Democrats aren’t as bad as Republicans these days, though that’s no great accomplishment. Democrats are better than Republicans the same way being gang raped by five biker scumbags is better than being gang raped by ten. Either way, you’re badly screwed.
Figures – for the first time in my life there’s a chance I might actually get to vote for a President rather than against his opponent, but first I have to corrode my soul. (Not that there’s anything inherently soul-corrosive about being a Republican; I’m just one of those fragile sensitive types.)
Also, I don’t want to end up on any Creationist mailing lists. Though if anybody asked I could probably say it’s part of a grand scheme to bring down the intelligent-design movement by inflating their postage costs.
Sigh. What to do, what to do? When I close I my eyes I can almost hear the serpentine susurrations of certain people reading this and saying “Join us. Join ussssss.”
