A Brief Public Service Announcement

(cross-posted to Alert Nerd)

I realize this has nothing to do with nerditry, and I probably don’t have to say the following to the good people who read this blog, but just so that it’s said, if only to make me feel better:

1) VOTE.

2) Be patient. Record turnouts, long lines, occasional malfunctions…anticipate these things. Expect them. Bring a book, as Chris already suggested, and relax. What you’re doing is important. It’s worth doing right.

3) Be kind. Those who work on Election Day at polling places are to me nearly saints. They have to put up with buckets of bullshit all to help us lazy fools who don’t volunteer so that the sausage gets made. Say “thank you,” a lot, and smile, and be warm and grateful. They deserve it.

That’s it.

Why Obama?

Because this:

1) It’s rare that I meet people I’d like to instantly punch repeatedly in the guts, let alone WOMEN I’d like to punch repeatedly in the guts. I’d like to punch her repeatedly in the guts.

2) Her husband has to contemplate suicide daily.

A Musical Note

I occasionally post mp3s on this blog, intended for illustrative purposes. If you are an artist who objects to my limited use of your music, please drop me a line and I will be happy to modify or remove the track. If you are a scary music industry lawyer, grow a FUCKING SOUL, and/or send me a Cease & Desist.
