Jesus VS Darwin

I just voted :>

Whee, this was my first time voting. Walked in the rain with my mom up to the local elementary school. There was no line. It took so little time that I'm almost disappointed. I had no idea who the House of Representatives people were, so I just went for Democrat on that one, but then afterward my mom started telling me all the reasons why she didn't like that guy. Oops? ^^;

Well, I guess I ended up voting entirely Democrat, since I also voted for Obama and Mark Warner... McCain's campaign is such a mess that the Republican side just doesn't appeal to me at all right now. *crosses fingers for Virginia to go to Obama*

Now usually I consider myself to be apathetic. But this election has been pretty exciting. It's the first time I've been so interested in politics (it probably helps that this is the first time I could actually participate too). I started paying attention during the Democratic Convention and since then spent every night watching various news channels (...as well as The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, SNL, David Letterman, and of course all the debates). Er, yeah. I'll admit my TV-watching has had a mostly liberal bias. .__.;

I wonder who my dad voted for. The last time I talked to him, he was leaning towards McCain...
