Vote.

I forgot how much I love informed voters. You would not believe the excitement stirred in me as I watched my class learn more about the election process, and the importance of voting.

And I forgot how much I love Ion Sancho.

People whose babies I would like to have, 9/19/07
Bill Clinton
Barack Obama
Paul Rudd
Ion Sancho



Republicans can have strong opinions too. I like strong opinions, regardless. You would not believe how pissed off I was at one ex when he said he didn't vote, and didn't care about Katrina because he couldn't do anything about it. No swaying in any way, just not caring. Stupid effing apathy. That's probably one of the reasons we stopped dating.

Vote.

Oh, and speaking of things I love, I am excited about how cheap flash drives are. Technology, ftw!

I'm pretty amazed by how cheap flash memory is these days. I saw a big bin of 1 gig drives at CompUSA last week for $12.

As a side note, Bill Clinton will be on the Daily Show tomorrow night.

I bought a 512mb drive a few weeks ago for $12 or so at Target. Better deals can be had now, it seems...

My husband bought a 2G flash drive about a week ago for, I think, $40.

Oh, and if you ever want to buy electronics check out http://www.salescircular.com/. I bought my laptop for about $400(saving $300) with that site.

I linked to his wikipedia in the entry. I meant to that before. Whoops.

yeah, he's awesome. I need to figure out where to get his documentary, Hacking Democracy, which is apparently up for an Emmy!

So Leon County was using Diebold machines, but they ended the relationship since they're hackable and Sancho publicly said he wouldn't have used them? Do you think Sancho would take back his words if he knew what a pain in the ass Diebold would be as a result?

Also, I hate apathy when it comes to voting. People who don't vote because they don't care irritate me like you won't believe. If you're not going to vote give me another reason...any reason besides "I don't care!" Ugh.

In regards to your list, I would totally give my eggs to Paul Rudd. He has that certain hotness that I can't explain. I don't know about Bill Clinton though. I definitely respect the man, but he comes off as being dirty to me in the sex department. I can totally see him picking up a hooker or something. I'd probably do Barack Obama, but I don't know if I'd want to have his babies because then that'd be a huge scandal and I want him to win the presidency. And, I don't know much about Ion Sancho so I can't judge. I think I'm more of a slut than you are cause my list is a little longer. =P

Re: I love cheap flash drives!
Sancho went into more detail last night on the hackableness of the machines. Once he found out he was furious and refused to have them in his county.


Dude I'd go turn in a blank ballot if I didn't like the candidates. And I'd get an "I VOTED" sticker for it too. Cause I did. FOR NO ONE.


who else is on your list?

I'm definitely going to take part in absentee voting when I'm overseas. Being able to vote in the U.S. elections is what makes me an American (along with eating ketchup with fries).

Number one on my list is Jon Stewart, hands down.

ew, ketchup. I'm not American.
I'm also not Jewish. Lox is gross.

You can have Jon Stewart. I'm keeping Paul Rudd. We can both have Obama in dreams only; no jeopardizing the chemistry. I get Clinton and Sancho.

Agreed. (I feel like we're divorcing.)

dude, I wrote chemistry and meant presidency. Maybe that mirror hurt me more than I thought.

If we were divorcing I'd want Jon Stewart too.

Pft! I gave you Paul Rudd, don't get greedy on me now.

I'm not. This isn't a divorce. Just a separation of the assets that we don't have!

i completely agree with you--there's nothing better than informed voters. but it definitely goes way beyond learning about the process and the importance of voting.

because even bigger than both of those is the importance of LEARNING!! you obviously have your beliefs, and i have mine...but if someone has no background with politics and hasn't formed opinions on the issues yet, they better get out there, get reading (newspapers, books, websites, whatever) and decide what's important to them, and which candidate(s) support their positions the strongest. you know that, and i know that...but i wish more average americans would realize that too.

you wouldn't believe how many girls i know who will vote for hillary clinton because "she's a woman." now THAT'S just wrong. arrrrrrrrgh
