Hundred million bottles
"Because then I get to vote against the bastards twice."
Maryland, you see, had closed primaries, where you can only vote the ballot of the party you're affiliated with. If you want to switch parties, you have to change your registration 3 months in advance. (Which is still the law, near as I can tell.) The Great State of Ohio, on the other hand, has open primaries, where you can choose your party on primary day.
This is fun.
Secretary of State Ken Blackwell is running for Governor of Ohio this year. Set aside for the moment that he's a radical right-winger who's in the pocket of the theocratic wing of the party. Ignore the fact that his economic plans for the state make no sense, yet his personal financial dealings show a remarkable prescience. (At least about who's going to get a big government contract.)
In Ohio, the Secretary of State is ultimately responsible for ensuring that elections are run right. So I'm not too happy with Blackwell's job performance.
And thanks to the beauty of the open primary, I get to vote against the S.O.B. twice.
