Well, I guess I need to address the Keith Judd issue, since I live in West Virginia.
First, in the interest of full disclosure, let me say that I am a lifelong registered Democrat, which is really not unusual in this state. I voted for Barack Obama in the last presidential election, but I also have questioned some of his decisions. Nevertheless, since I have far less confidence in those who would run against him, I will vote for him again. For the purposes of this discussion, I guess I should also state that, being a redhead of Scots-Irish descent, I am one of the whitest-looking people you are ever going to meet. That said….
When I was voting in the primary, expecting no one to be running against Barack Obama for President, I noticed that there was an opposing name on the presidential ballot which I had never heard before in my entire life: Keith Judd.
Of course I did not vote for someone I had never heard of before in my entire life. He could be anything. He could be a criminal, or an insane person, or a convicted felon, or even a prisoner. As it turns out, he is all those things.
