I’m headed to my local voting precinct to do one of the most important tasks anyone over 18 can possibly do: cast a vote. Sure, it’s only the primaries. But in a way, I believe them to be more important than the general election; like the playoffs preceding the Super Bowl. And when there’s an incumbent running, it’s the ultimate in playoffs. Could you imagine if the reigning Super Bowl Champs had their opponent selected by America? Think about it. If you hate the reigning championship team, you could either vote in your favorite team or a team that might be better suited to dethrone the champs if yours is having an lackluster season. Likewise, if your team IS the reigning champ, you could vote in the weakest team in the league to ensure another Lombardi Trophy! So why wouldn’t you vote in the primaries? Imagine how disappointed Mr. Timberlake would be if you didn’t.
Can’t decide on someone to vote for? Write in my name! I lost my senior class campaign for president and never quite got over it. GAH.
Obviously, I’m totally kidding. Sort of. But in all seriousness, I’d tell you who I’m voting for if I didn’t want to mix business with touchy subjects. I don’t want to alienate anyone even though I fully support every single person who votes based on the issues and not blindly through party affiliations, where they’re from (blue or red state majority), or the way they think they should based solely on their upbringing.
Okay okay. You talked me into it. If you MUST know, I’m voting for Liz Lemon. 😉
