Ah, Democracy [sniffs]…

Can you smell it?

Maybe it’s the chemical smell of a freshly sealed gym floor in the physical education annex of your neighborhood middle school…

Maybe it’s the peanut butter sandwich you packed in a brown bag because you sacrificed your lunch break so your three student interns could take the day off to drive home to pull the lever…

Maybe it’s the acrid, fetid reek of B.O. wafting from the guy standing next to you in line at the polls…

Maybe it’s the warm, welcoming smell of a Meat Lovers pizza, because you’ll be damned if you miss even a second of the election coverage, so cooking is out of the question…

Suck it all in, folks. LOVE IT! This is liberty and it’s delicious.

I would hope that everyone reading this has already made up their minds as to whom will receive their vote tomorrow, but just in case

Here’s my favorite political ad from the entire election season. It’s not an official campaign ad, but it stands out for me, and not just because it references a beloved musical…



I don’t know about you, but this commercial is totally speaking my language.

Ok, maybe it IS just because it references a musical. But I get chills every time! I have to ask myself, though, would a similar ad from the McCain camp have moved me? I’m picturing the same concept but maybe with Tradition from Fiddler on the Roof instead of One Day More from Les Mis. Hmmm….

Anyway, I hope everyone has a fulfilling and relatively stress-free election day. It’s been an insanely long campaign and I think everyone’s emotions are pulled tighter than Cindy McCain’s face. I’m super ready for it all to be over.

Speaking of voting… I’ve been nominated for Best Pop Culture Blog over at the Spartanburg Spark. In the spirit of the day, why not follow the link over and throw me a bone (left hand column, about halfway down)?? If elected, I promise even more insightful, funny, absolutely bat-shit crazy pop culture posts, and I won’t even charge you for them.

God Bless this blog! And God Bless America!!
