Hey little sister who's your Superman?

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“To put them in perspective, I think of being on an airplane. The flight attendant comes down the aisle with her food cart and, eventually, parks it beside my seat. “Can I interest you in the chicken?” she asks. “Or would you prefer the platter of shit with bits of broken glass in it?”

To be undecided in this election is to pause for a moment and then ask how the chicken is cooked.”

David Sedaris in 2008 on “undecided” voters.

Some truths are always truths, whatever the year.

    Politics aside, I’ve had airline food and sometimes I’d prefer the shit with the broken glass, its preferable to the rubber chicken. That’s if you get anything on an airplane but a bag of nuts thrown at you and a thimble of diet no name cola.

    I saw an article today that speculates we may well be in the very rare situation with this election in which a candidate is elected based on electoral college votes alone, having been outvoted in the popular vote. It would be Obama in this case whose secure states give him an impressive advantage with the electors while the popular vote could be more for Romney or even frustratingly inconclusive.

    Scott,
    It boggles my mind that so many voters are undecided. Do they need a brick wall to fall on them. Maybe we should give them some shit sandwiches to help them decide. How fucking stupid!!!

    @Will . . . just a reminder that Bush, the Shrub, won the 2000 election in the electoral college, but Gore got 500,000 more in the popular vote.

    Will — and if that turns out to be the case what do you want to bet that there will be hell raised and heaven and earth will be attempted to be moved to FINALLY do away with this nonsense that is the “Electoral College”? Because you know when the Republicans are forced to deal with this reality it will be an entirely different interpretation of what’s what and there will be a never ending call for action with hysterics and histrionics to pale what we saw in 2000 when this happened to Gore. They will flip the fuck out and cry bloody murder and threaten all sorts of threats, beat their chests, nash their teeth, whine, wale, holler and pound their petulant feet in disgust over having been thwarted in their attempt to fuck this country over — yet again.

    There is no such person as an undecided voter. There are those who are too ashamed to say, “I don’t vote for Black,” and there are those who don’t vote, never vote, and will never vote because there is no free beer, doughnuts, etc given out.
