Vote early, vote often
Haha, the title of this entry is a reference to politics in my native Chicago in the years of the original Mayor Richard J. Daley. He was quite a character, and that seemed to be the motto of his political machine. But do vote early.
In honor of today's primary vote, I offer a few choice quotes from Mayor Daley himself.
The police are not here to create disorder, they're here to preserve disorder.Interesting guy, that Daley. Never a dull moment in Chicago city politics.
We shall reach greater and greater platitudes of achievement.
Television and radio do a wonderful job in focusing attention on the problems of our society.
Even the Lord had skeptical members of His party.

Don't worry if they're Democrats or Republicans. Give them service and they'll become Democrats.
They have vilified me, they have crucified me; yes, they have even criticized me.
I'm not the last of the old bosses. I'm the first of the new leaders.
No poll can equal the day-to-day visits of the men and women of the Democratic Party.
Power is dangerous unless you have humility.
We as Democrats have no apologies to make to anyone.
What is inherently wrong with the word 'politician' if the fellow has devoted his life to holding public office and trying to do something for his people?
I just cast my ballot even though it's pouring down rain here in Massachusetts. I always get a thrill when the machine slurps up my form—I feel so official, and heard.
So add your voice to the chorus if you're in a Super Tuesday state, and VOTE.
