“Thank you, Maricopa County. I have two polling places within walking distances of my house. … But my polling place is over 5 miles from my house. So we really want to burn extra gas, don’t we?”

“To put the primary in perspective: There were six of us poll workers at my precinct. We each had attended a two-hour training session, spent four hours on Monday setting up the polls and were there for 15 hours on Tuesday. That’s 126 man-hours. The result? Twenty-six voters turned out!”

“Perhaps if Janet Napolitano concentrated more on Arizona instead of making speeches at the Democratic convention, her propositions would have made the ballot.”

“It seems that almost every conservative is giving John McCain congratulations for choosing Sarah Palin to be his running mate. Let’s be honest, John McCain didn’t make that decision. Karl Rove did.”

“What kind of mother would knowingly subject their child to the kind of negative attention Bristol Palin is receiving?”

“Do we not have bigger problems to worry about than the VP nominee’s pregnant daughter? Give me a break!”

“We now have the sequel to ‘Juno,’ ‘The Girl from Juneau.’ ”

“There were no secrets on a local basis concerning Palin and her family. All issues were already known. The national media, pundits and so-called experts were caught looking elsewhere. Shows how weak the … media’s vetting process was.”

“All fathers should point out to their daughters to strive for the best they can attain. As long as it doesn’t include being president or vice president of the United States of America. Who will watch their children and take care of their husbands?”

“The Sarah Palin flap is a red herring calculated to distract voters from the serious problems caused by eight years of Republican screw-ups. Besides, we’ve already seen this plot on “Desperate Housewives,” where Bree pretends she is pregnant to cover up her unwed teenage daughter’s pregnancy.”

“As VP, Palin will bring a very different angle to the term “vice presidential hunting accident.” Her targets end up on the kitchen table.”

“I am a high school graduate from NoTown, Arizona, USA, and I ain’t votin’ for hobody with no high falutin’, aleet, smartalaky ways. I want a person who can talk like me and doesn’t use too big words or sentences. Go McCain!”

“I’m starting to wonder how bad four years with no president would be.”

“I know that DPS was using aircraft (to track speeding motorists) as far back as the 1970s. I know. They caught me!”

“There was a blurb about the gold medal winner, his mother was on Jay Leno and she’s illegal (Vent, Monday) … She is not illegal. She may have come illegally, when they had the amnesty she became a legal citizen of the United States.”

The following vent that appeared Wednesday was transcribed incorrectly. Here is the correct version:

“It was reported Friday afternoon that an officer in the (Scottsdale) police force accidently shot his dog with his service revolver. That is no accident. That is just stupidity.”
