Get Out n' Vote! Just vote for the right guy!
There are alot of young idealistic folks out there trying to make sure that all American citizens make it to the polls this year. And that's just fine. People need to exercise their right, despite the shitty choices.

However, I learned a fun game you can play whenever you're accosted by obviously liberal folks on the street pushing the whole "GET OUT AND VOTE" routine. Go ahead and stop and let them talk to you all they want. Put your hand on your chin to indicate deep thought, looking towards the sky as you do so. Then, having visibly reached a new sense of enlightenment, turn to the lad/lass and say, "Hey man, thanks alot. You've opened my eyes to the importance of my singular voice. I WILL go out and cast my vote for Bush on November 2nd!", then keep your eyes on their face and wait for the magnificent festering.

I guess my point is, why don't they just go ahead and say "Get out n' vote for Kerry!" (or Bush if there happen to be any Bush-minded activists out there, but I haven't seen any yet). I know, I know, that's not the important part. What's important is that they vote, period.

Still, I can't help but wonder if these folks ever think about the possibility that they're rounding up people against their man.

But whatever. It's all good. As I said, just a thought.
