Newsflash: It's Election Day!

I don't know if you've heard, but today is Election Day in the USA. No, really. It is! Because I am amazing, I voted on my way into work. I filled out a real paper ballot and everything (no faulty electronic voting machine in my awesome neighborhood!). They say it doesn't matter who you vote for as long as you vote, but we all know that's crap. You should vote based on your age. Winston Churchill said, "Show me a young Conservative and I'll show you someone with no heart. Show me an old Liberal and I'll show you someone with no brains." So, basically, everyone reading this should vote for Obama or you are disproving Winston Churchill and we all know he was smarter than anyone, ever (mainly because we share a birthday on Nov. 30th. Have I mentioned lately I'm turning 30 at the end of the month? I haven't? Email me and I'll send you the address where all presents can be sent).

In California, we also have The Big Gay Marriage Proposition. The Supreme Court of Cali decided months ago to legalize gay marriage and now all the (mainly) religious folks are trying to overturn that decision. These people make me angry. Mostly because when I officially give up on men, I'd like to know I'll have the full legal rights and benefits of the straights. It's all about me, doncha know.

So get out and vote for Obama or you have no heart. I'm just saying.

In some states, you can also vote for Cynthia McKinney. And really, why wouldn't you? http://southdakotapolitics.blogs.com/south_dakota_politics/images/cynthia_mckinney.jpg

I'm going the opposite way, when I was young I was what I'd call conservative ("Screw you, pay for your own medication") and nowadays I'm getting more and more liberal ("Screw you you're going to pay for my medication").

I guess I'm bound to be a fluffhead as an old man.

God bless the gays and their adorable wanting to marry.

(Seriously, though, this is one of the props I am following closely. Go gay marriage!)

Lol... you crack me up, Red! :)

I didn't know it was your GOLDEN BIRTHDAY coming up! Don't you know that means extra specialness and more presents?!

My last comment was supposed to link to a picture of Cynthia McKinney. It didn't work, but google image it yourselves, it's worth it.

Why are you always hassling me about my politics? I voted the same way my folks always do: for the Dixiecrat.

According to Churchill, I'm heartless AND stupid. Yeah, well he was way fatter than me and probably had bad teeth, too.
