I have been talking with some grassroots Dems in California and the word amongst us is that we are pulling the lever for our man Howard Dean on March 2nd. I made sure my registration was valid and up to date as today was the last day to register for the primary. I would not want to be rat-Torricelli-ed on the big day. However, I would cast my vote for Edwards if Dean asked me to before March 2nd. I would not vote for any of the backstabbers, even for Dean himself.
Most of us are pretty disgusted by the underhanded Torricelli tricks of the Washington Insider Dems. I am going to be saving my donations for special projects like painting a bullseye on Tom DeLay. No WashDemBum is going to be getting any money from me. My Dead Presidents don't go into the hands of disgusting sell-out backstabbers. Dean may forgive and forget, but my wallet is closed to backstabbers.
I am also going to be using my absentee ballot, which being made of paper, has a bit more permanence than the crooked voting machines that many California counties have purchased. I am not going to vote without a paper trail.
