This is telling. I have to disagree with Captain Ed on this, though, considering some of the recent conversations I’ve had with fairly uninformed voters. An example:
UNNAMED PERSON: I’m totally a Democrat, but I’m voting for McCain because of Palin.
SARAHK: God bless you.
UNNAMED PERSON: Not so quick. I was a huge Hillary supporter. But I really think we need a woman in there.
A terrible reason to vote for someone, yes? This is the same girl who said she’s definitely not a conservative because she has a sense of humor and conservatives don’t. I kept waiting for the badum-ching, but she was serious.
