Early voting in Bernalillo, NM

by kkmd

Tears literally were in my eyes as I started to mark my ballot this week. Eight years of grinding my teeth, four years of wearing only black(under garments don't count), two years of mourning for what the democratic congress failed to do, five months of volunteering, 125 voters registered, countless miles canvassed, and finally one vote cast.

politics with the family

by kkmd

In my extended family we used to faithfully observe the "rule of threes" which meant no talking about (1) religion- we span atheist, quaker, catholic and evangelical; (2) fat; and (3) politics. Since volunteering for the Obama campaign this summer I've been breaking the rules big time- hoping to make some headway on my fanatically right-wing mother and PUMA sister. No movement in spite of wearing my Obama-wear and gushing over all my activities.

Today I was soundly informed there was to be strict observance of rule #3 at the family cookout. BUT my two teens and I were fresh back from Invesco Stadium bursting with excitement. How could we possibly observe the rule? My fourteen year old saved the day. While I was out canvassing she baked and decorated a cake. My mom thought it was a beautiful patriotic offering. My PUMA sister told us we were all going to go to HELL. A cake we can believe in.
