15. Already selling out.
I've been thinking about this a lot and will more than likely be thinking about it long after I cast my votes. Whether the Dems win it all or not.

I'm already going to vote for Granholm even after she ended benefits to gay partners because of popular opinion. The vote on the marriage proposal wasn't split THAT much- 40's to 60's. She used to seem so supportive, so it came as more of a surprise and made me believe she could easily be a turncoat. Voting for her after that sends the message that my vote can be used by Democrats when it's convenient for them. I'm selling out to keep DeVos from becoming Governor.

Now I've got to decide whether to vote for a woman who peed on the constitution for fear that people might call her names if she didn't.

There's no way to soak my brain and soul in bleach after the vote.
