Out Roanoke way, a long-time Republican is fed up after trying to vote in a “firehouse primary” (whatever that is–sounds sort of like a caucus).

I’ll quote a bit of his article, but, really, you should read it.

Along with the usual questions — name, address, phone number, etc. — were questions to which I was required to answer in the affirmative, two of which immediately caught my eye.

One asked if I was in support of the “principles of the Republican Party” and the second required that I affirm that I would support/vote for whomever the Republicans had nominated to run in the November election.

Believing for a split second that Vladimir Putin would suddenly appear and congratulate me for showing up to ensure that he would receive the usual 96.7 percent of the vote, I was incredulous.

Then, again, that may depend on which list.

Better luck next time, Dean.

When a student by that name at a Radnor Township university ordered fake IDs from China, his first mistake was having the cards delivered to campus, police say.
