Favoriting Hinky Dinky Time with Uncle Michael: Playlist from November 2, 2018 Favoriting

Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Favoriting

Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

Hi Uncle Mike - Continuing the rant from Doug's board. All decent people must vote against EVERY name with an R next to it on Tuesday. The guy running for governor in Kansas is among the most vulgar from that dark, dangerous cult of personality that used to be a political party. No decent percent can just shrug off this election.

I find myself f two minds on next Tuesday. I am not worried about the candidates for whom I will vote getting elected (although they will almost all be people I didn't vote for in the primaries), but I am pessimistic to the point of crushing depression over what's going to happen in elections over which I have no control. For what very little talismanic value it may have, I plan to decline the "I voted" sticker, which I have worn while watching my candidates lose three times in a row now.
