The politics of friendship

My Wife has never been very political in public, yet the true value of her friendship was on display a few days before this last round of local elections.

In 102 degree heat, she was out canvasing a far off neighborhood in support of a friends bid for an OK House Seat.

A friend, I might add, who was not a representative of her chosen political party.

Some may say she's a hypocrite. Some may cry foul for her blatant disregard for the sanctity of the multi-party political system. Some may even say she sold out for her own non-political but personal gain.

I say "shut up and go vote."

As if on cue, this article recently appeared in our local news rag that just oozes further proof that every vote counts, especially here in small town Oklahoma.

Deciding an election by pulling a name out of a hopper...what'll they think of next?
