MKMOT (November 6, 2012)

Today, we talk about the importance of voting. As a media celebrity, I am obligated to use my influence on regular people by lecturing you on this. It's in the handbook.

It's no secret that we're at a crossroads as a people. We can talk all day and night about complex issues, but that's more suited for guys like that guy from Two And A Half Men, or that grimy rock guy who always wears tank tops and plowed Pamela Anderson (the second one, or third, or whatever...), or that wildly-gesticulating man-waif with the horrible voice and the pork pie hat. I'd rather boil it down to more simplistic premises.

We can stay with the status quo, and accept more of the same. That's fine for those of you who are happy with the current state of things. I've done some research, and I know such people exist. Or you can vote for change, or at least the promise of it. With the booming tenor of money constantly drowning out the inner voice to do good, change is always at risk of being a promise unfulfilled. So it's easy to stick with what we know. Yet we suffer so much now...

Look, I'm not going to tell you who to vote for. I'm just urging you to do it. Be a good citizen. Your voice is needed.

Head to the polling station. It's just about 6 inches Northwest of here, and it's open.

    ...and, I'm President again.

    Everyone below me drink. Finish that beer, Skeevy. Chug it, don't lug it.

    Also, now I'm instituting thumb rule. Eyes up, fellows.

    2. Smooth one, guy. He's going to make us all do a waterfall for that little remark.

      Also you missed the thumb rule. Again. Drink, dude.

  4. I don't know whether I should wait on line to vote for Obama or make sure I am the first on line for bread tomorrow.

    1. Judging by the fact that you say "waiting on line," you're probably in a state that will go Obama either way.

  5. Well, look who joined the game. Looks like you're no longer asshole, Skeevy.

    Deal it up, Voter. I get your two best cards, you get my two worst. If I don't get at least a 3 or a 2 that'll be half a beer.

  6. I like election time. It helps me figure out who to unsubscribe to on facebook.
