Don't Be (A) Fool(ed)



If you follow the polls, you've already noticed that Barack Obama has a hefty lead. But since when are polls the crystal ball? Already some are saying it's a slam dunk - that no way will John McCain win. But have you ever come home after a hard day, loosened the neck-tie, unleashed the bra, changed into your comfy clothes and settled in to watch some tube, when something crazy occurs ruining your relaxed state?

Remember Watergate? Ever hear of election rigging? It can happen, but worse than that are the folks believing in the polls. You know the ones. They shrug and say, "Hey, my one measly vote doesn't mean diddly-squat," and they take the day to go shopping, hunting, or just being a lazy ass because it's easier to sit home than go stand for two seconds inside a voting booth.

Don't be a lemming. The polls are a good indication of what might happen, but YOU HAVE TO GET OFF YOUR FAT ASS AND VOTE! If you don't then don't come complaining when certain rights you've enjoyed are suddenly history. Don't go talking trash about the President, no matter who gets to clean up the spill in aisle Bush. If you don't VOTE than you can just shut the hell up and suck it up...

Because it's never, ever over until the Fat Lady sings it like her last Whopper depends on it. SO GET OUT AND VOTE! NOVEMBER 4! If you can do it sooner, then JUST DO IT! And don't be fooled into thinking that you can vote beyond NOVEMBER 4. It's either VOTE before November 4 or on November 4. After NOVEMBER 4 it's all over. Just don't make it all over by not VOTING.

If you do nothing else in your life, be the one to make a difference because you exercised your right to VOTE.

VOTE! VOTE! VOTE! On or before November 4!

P.S. My eye is still in the healing process, according to Dr. Goddess. The good news: I read beyond the big E! The bad news: there is none. I return for another look on, would you believe, November 4. ELECTION DAY! Voting and eyeballing all in one glorious day. How much better could it get?

VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!

Umm...did you want me to vote? :) Well, I already did!! Yep, hubby and I always absentee vote so we can talk about all the issues - which translated means he explains the stuff I'm a little fuzzy on. Anyways, mailed them off a couple weeks ago.

I'm so glad you're feeling well! Yay! Good luck on Tuesday! Happy voting!

Come hell or high water, right Edie?

Robin, I thought about doing the absentee thing (New York doesn't have early voting). I know the polls will be busy, but maybe if I get up and go early...

LOL! I was listening to the video first, couldn't figure out why you chose the video for that title, but then I cracked up!

I hope your eye does well on Tuesday!

Now that you said it, I think that maybe I should have stuck that video at the end. lol.

Thanks for the good wishes. I'm hoping Tuesday will produce many great things!
