It's Super Tuesday. I got up this morning and decided to go and vote for the man with the most impressive hair. I have male pattern baldness. I keep my hair cut almost boot camp short, so its not as noticeable. Even with that cosmetic alteration to preserve my vanity, I know I'm losing hair. Which is why its so high minded and courageously principled of me to vote for a man with conspicuously more hair than I.
Wanting to demonstrate my impressive amount of non-prejudice towards the hair-folicaly gifted, I determined to cast my vote in the primaries. Wyoming works under a caucus system. It's been widely reported that Tuesday March 1, 2016 is the day for doing this in my state.
Except in my county it wasn't.
Someone made the decision that Saturday February 27, 2016 was the best day to have the Super Tuesday caucus. Despite being a registered member of my political party for 26 years, most of that time in this county, and despite having participated in other primaries, I was not informed of the change.
I managed to find some on line news stories about the caucus. The general opinion reported was that those participating felt a need to "stump Trump".
I don't feel personally thwarted in expressing my desire to elect someone with a solid 1978 hairstyle to public office. Wyoming's collective opinion on matters politic doesn't mean much nationally. Which means my vote is meaningless in the grand scheme of things. With that being the case, why tell everyone that primaries are on Tuesday but actually have them on Saturday?
