Subject: Checking in from "swing
For this election I'm happy to be out of Texas
and in a state where my vote matters!
(I hate the g-damn electoral college.) I canvassed
for Obama last weekend with my Mom
in my Northern Virginia town where I live. This
town is considered semi-Republican...but
out of the 20 or so people we talked to, 15 were
voting for Obama! And these were
pre-selected as UNDECIDED voters or independent
voters, not Dems. 2 or 3 were still
undecided (dumbasses), one guy was hollering
about taxing small businesses and socialism,
and one guy--and this made my whole day--we knocked
on the door, and said "blablabla,
are you considering voting for Obama?" and he
said "NOPE! TOO BLACK!" and we said
"uhh.." and he said "NOT VOTING FOR A BLACK MAN!"
and slammed the door.
I had busted out laughing before he shut it.
My husband was watching from the street and said
"Whatever happened to honesty?"
Of course it's easy to find it amusing when you're
100 electoral votes ahead...
:) :) :)
Keep on keeping on!
The good guys will win this time!
