Roo is mighty peeved by Republican voter suppression laws ready to come into effect in the next election cycle in her new home state of North Carolina. What do you expect? She's convinced that those rules are only designed to keep voters like her away from the polls. Granted, like half of American voters, Roo has many conservative values. She can't help believing that if growing up without access to education was good enough for her, it should be good enough for everybody. Health care? Her teeth were black at the age of eight months. Didn't she pick herself up by the bootstraps and turn them white again, through diligent, dedicated bone chewing? Potholes in the street? The sign of a healthy mouse-digging economy, nothing more.
Nonetheless. Though the author Roy Blount has correctly observed, "All dogs are Southerners," this time Roo made her (possibly last) vote count and went for the straight Dem ticket.
