A Bipartisan, U.S. American Plea to Dear Readers Galore


Our day has come, my fellow Americans.

And now is the time.  Now is the time to be heard. 

Now is the time to count.

So it is with great pride, dear readers, that at this historic moment I shed my Cardinal red in favor of the stars and stripes forever.  I gladly reach across the proverbial aisle and shake the hand of the Cub fan who spit on me, who kicked me, who urinated on my shoe. 

We may not love one another; but we both love the greatest game on earth.

And likewise, our shared passion for making a difference in this great nation will bring us together on November 4th.  For on this day we are not Cardinal fans, Cub fans, Democrats nor Republicans: we’re Americans and we have a duty to fulfill.

So join us, Astros fans.  Join us, Brewers fans.  Tiger fans.  Yankee fans.  Red Sox fans.  Join us in the celebration of what our forefathers fought so hard to provide us.

Get out on November 4th and vote.

It’s your god given right.

You deserve to be heard.

And don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

    Two votes for Obama. Didn’t realize you could vote absentee AND on election day.

    (Just kidding. Me and my son.)

    Some of this blog reminds me of Barack Obama’s speech at the Democratic National Convention (and it was a great speech).
    I’d love to vote… if I could 😦

    Not old enough to vote yet… but, I did vote in my school mock election so I did my part lolz. You should’ve seen some of the slogans people were coming up with for the fake campaigning. Here’s a whiff: “Even your mama would vote for Obama.” “Ain’t no one better at the game than John McCain.” and my favorite “Don’t be a hater, vote for Nader.” [When is that guy not on the ballot?]

    Thanks all for your good comments. Aaron, congrats on the front page quote! Jane and Michael, thanks for fulfilling your civic duty. Elizabeth and V, don’t worry, you’ll have plenty of chances in the future to make a difference. For now, you have to put your faith in our votes. Looks like real change is on the way based on the early polls. Three cheers for USA, USA, USA!
    I’m getting ready to go on a much needed vacation. Make sure you keep Al on his toes while I’m gone and don’t let him bash me too hard.
