vote

(no subject)

When I first saw the sticker pictured in my icon, I couldn't make out (didn't bother to read too closely) the adverb. My head filled in that space with a word that'd syntactically finish the sentence and be roughly the right size: "I Voted Democratically". Which, I thought, would be an odd partisan sticker to give out. Or perhaps it's little-d democratically, which would be redundant.

When I did read the sticker, I was amused to think of an Electronic Party. Robots running for office. Appliances turning out to make their tinny synthesized voices heard.

Just about as crazy as The American Ninja Party idea that I had last year.
