My Brother Is A Republican

My dearly beloved brother David came out of the closet quite a few years ago as a Republican. The good news is that he lives in California, an overwhelmingly Democratic state, so his vote doesn't matter much. In 2000 he voted Libertarian because he really doesn't like Bush. But I fear that he is going to vote for Dubya this time. (Something to do with an unfounded fear that the Dems will make Iraq worse than it is by bringing in the UN. Is it possible to screw Iraq up worse???) Even though California is going to continue to be a "blue" state, I worry. What's a loving sister to do? Remember, friends don't let friends vote Republican.

That's very interesting, as he's my dad and you are my aunt and you have completely different political opinions.

Hey, you're not a Brandeis graduate...or even a high school graduate. What are you doing on my Blog???

I am the wayward brother.

Much not to beloved about Bush. But can you really take Senator Nuance seriously?

My right-wing rants here.

I find it ironic that David (Phoebe's Republican brother and my Republican father) likes to give Kerry crap for flip-flopping when he has made the biggest flip of them all. How can a man who participated in the sit-ins at Columbia in the Sixties now vote for El Junior? Luckily, Republicanism isn't genetic!

Do you remember going to meetings when he was a socialist? Talk about useless pastimes!
