Let me make this clear. I have never voted for a Republican candidate in my entire life -- not on the federal, state or local level. In fact, when I die I would be proud to have it chiseled on my headstone that I never voted Republican. I have also never given money to a Republican candidate or the Republican Party.
I have such a dislike for Republicans that when I voted this year (and I have already taken advantage of early voting), I did not vote in several local races because a Republican was running unopposed. And anyone who has read this blog knows that I seldom (if ever) have anything good to say about Republicans (with the exception of Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt) or the Republican Party.
Personally, I believe modern Republicans have done more damage to this country than any foreign adversary could dream of doing (including al-Queda and the Taliban). So you can imagine my surprise when I got the following invitation:
|Please Join VictoryTexas for an Election Night Watch Party!|
VictoryTexas 2010 and the Republican Party of Texas invite you to join us for an election night watch party for all our statewide Republican candidates on the ballot.
Honored guests will include:
Brad Dunn and Ellis County
will provide music entertainment throughout the evening
I am on the mailing list of the state Republican Party, so I can blog about any nutty stuff they try to do. I guess that's all it takes to get an invitation. I don't think I'll be going to that little get-together (and probably couldn't afford it anyway). Fortunately, I had already gotten an invitation to the Amarillo Democrats victory party (and if I go anywhere on election night, it will be there).
