Little Rhody gets to vote in what is called the "Rhode Island Presidential Preference Primary," which is probably the most accurate name that I've seen to date, on the 26th of April. We get to pick from what's left after the rest of the country has ransacked the store.
It feels like the time I heard of an upcoming snowstorm pretty late, by the time I got to the grocery store the shelves had pretty much been picked clean. Kind of looked like the stores in the former Soviet Union, though unlike the Soviet Union, these shelves had once been stocked with goods. (True, you can ask Comrade Bernie about that.)
Yup, Little Rhody is down to the left overs. However, this place is heavily Democrat, so for most of the Rhode Islanders, two-thirds of the candidates are still in play. Well, the only party they care about anyway. Come Election Day me and the other four conservatives in the state will cast our ballots for, for, for...
Damn, I just don't know. Things are looking pretty damn grim to this old Sarge. I have this sinking feeling that come November it will be Il Duce, er, I mean Trump, versus Shrillary. What a choice, what an opportunity to cast my vote for whoever everyone else decided should be in the race.
I tell ya...
It just ain't right.
