I don't think voting for a Republican under any circumstance is a virtue.

Really UA? I always had you for a "consider the data" kind of guy. Although I don't know why. Straight edge, atheism and minimalism are all absolutes, so perhaps I shouldn't be surprised.
I vote for republicans almost every primary. It's the only way to have any say in many of my local elections.
also, I'm allergic to absolutes.
reflecting more on this, if I remember correctly, UA has an issue with voting, not just republicans.
