Any half-awake Republican knows that Sam Graves will need some help in the general election, so we volunteered at the polls today. Sam is our Congressman, and he's being challenged by St. Joseph native Kay Barnes (of the Walter Kronkite clan). She's endorsed by Emily's list and all the other radical lobby groups that don't live in northwest Missouri. So we passed out literature with a smile: Meggar and Dorito were with me from 6:30-8:00 am, just my own sweat to keep me company over the noon hour, and then the twins did an evening stint. Politics are not perfect or pretty, but it's important to make a difference.
