Overlooked Demogaphics

The other day I heard someone say that "No one hates Laura Bush except for Teresa Heinz". I thought that was probably true. Afterall, Laura Bush is a sweetie.

But, then, in a surprise turn of events, my best friend -- who I thought I knew like the back of my hand -- announced that she voted for Kerry because Laura Bush gives her the horrors.

I was astonished. I ... I ... I couldn't even begin to imagine what she was thinnking! Well, it turns out that she was thinking Laura Bush is her worst nightmare at work. See, my best friend works in an extremely specialized field as an expert/tech-support for library networks. She's freaked out by exposure to librarians!

Although I have a hard time imagining Laura Bush going nuts on a tech-support person, I'm not going to laugh (much) at her aversion to librarians. Afterall, she doesn't laugh at my aversion to snails :)


If I wasn't already going to vote for Bush, I'd change my vote to vote for Bush, just due to Kerry's scary wife...I certainly don't like the idea of her sitting down representing our country in one of those horrid linen suits of hers.

Ok...I figure if your friend can change her vote because she hates librians I can imagine changing my vote because of foul fashion....right?

Good thing I was already voting for Bush though...

I think people vote for all kinds of "different" reasons. Once, a pseudo-friend of mine said that she wouldn't vote for Clinton a second time because he had an entanglement with that "ugly Paula Jones. I could have forgiven him if he had the good taste to get involved with an attractive woman at least!"

I've got to admit I didn't love Clinton, but it certainly wasn't because he had bad taste in women!
