Papa and Mama Snob in an undated photograph
Despite some light peppering for moi, Mama and Papa Snob did not relinquish the names of who they voted for in the 2008 Democratic primary. They probably won’t relent them, even upon pain of death. The most I was able to scratch out was that my mother had a difficult time choosing and my father (of course) did not. We won’t even get into the extended Snob family, which is ginormous, but I might ask my sisters at some point.
I’m hoping we all made the right decisions since we’re holding on to our secret ballots like if we say our candidate’s name out loud it won’t come true. You folks know who I’m backing, but I’m just as superstitious as my parents. Although Mama Snob said maybe, MAYBE she would say who she voted for if the person who she voted for wins. We’ll see how Missouri goes in this historical primary. Will they be on the right side of history with the Gateway Arch and Chuck Berry? Or will it be on the bad side with the Missouri Compromise and the Dred Scott Decision?
Only time will tell … in about four to five hours.
