On this day:

Oh well...my vote didn't go to John McCain

I just couldn't do it.

After Fred Thompson dropped out of the race last month, I said:
...if the Alabama Republican Party's ballots have already been printed up, I'm good-minded to vote for [Thompson] anyway, whether he likes it or not.

But that would be a symbolic vote...maybe even a protest vote...and certainly a wasted vote. And I prefer not to waste my vote.
Well, Fred's name was on the ballot today. I never imagined that "wasting" a vote could feel so good.
