Kesha Rogers

No, I can’t explain the result in CD22, either. Stuff just happens sometimes, especially in races where not much attention is being paid. The good news, if you can call it that, is that nobody was going to make a race out of this for November anyway, so it’s not like this represents a blown opportunity. Obviously, the county party chairs want you to vote a straight ticket, which is why Gerry Birnberg was trying so hard to make lemonade in that story. But it’s not at all hard to vote a straight ticket and then de-select your vote in one race; I did that in 2008, and you can too in 2010 if you’re unfortunate enough to live in CD22. Which brings me to the one bit in this story that annoyed me:

One Democratic blogger already has posted instructions on how to de-select Rogers from a straight party ticket vote.

Is there any particular reason that sentence couldn’t have read “Hal Heitman, a Democratic blogger who lives in CD22, has already posted instructions on his blog Half Empty on how to de-select Rogers from a straight party ticket vote”? I had a pretty good idea of where to go to find that particular posting, but for those who might not be as aware of the local blog scene, wouldn’t it have been nice to be a wee bit more specific? I really don’t get the reluctance to do so. Be that as it may, Hal’s instructions are on target, and it’ll only take you a few extra seconds to perform that step. Up to you if you want to do it, but there you have it. Juanita has more.
