Obama Vs. McCain

I have decided to tell the female Obama supporters at work that I am voting for McCain while telling the female McCain supporters that I am voting for Obama. That way I can maximize the number of women who will try to convince me to vote the other way. 

The day before the November election is like speed dating for me. The more women I can debate with about the candidates, the more opportunities I can create to get tail.

Here's how it works: I will debate passionately about the candidate they don't support, but inevitably I'll let them "convince" me to change my vote to the candidate they do support. They will be so impressed by the fact that I value their opinion enough to actually change my vote that they'll gladly have a drink with me after work sometime. It goes something like this:

"You've convinced me."


"Yes. We should have a drink sometime."


I suppose you're wondering which way I'll actually vote. Well, I do take this election very seriously. Here are the pros and cons for each candidate:

McCain Pros:

  • SNL Tina Fey's Palin sketches for at least four more years.

McCain Cons:

  • Eeh.

Obama Pros:

  • He doesn't refer to his running mate as a "bresh of freth air".

Obama Cons:

  • SNL sketches not as funny as Tina Fey's Palin.

I think I'll just pass on voting this election year. As Democrats always do, Obama will take California anyway. My vote won't matter either way. What does matter is that women think my vote matters.

Absolutely brilliant.

Only you can come up with a plan such as this to get "more tail."

God dammit . . . I wish I'd known about this earlier so I could have tried it myself . . . a dollar late and a day short.

Well Satch, at least you'll be ready for the next election in 4 years...

I'm kind of curious to know whether or not you did actually vote...

Nope. Didn't vote. I thought about it around 7:00pm, but realized by the time I got to the polling booth, Obama would have it. So, I was right. My vote wouldn't matter anyway.

Not even a week after the president election the blond topblogger from Sweden, Linda Ekholm speaks out loud about Obama!
And I really believe this is truly written by heart. Scary!

Hahaha, this is awesome, I dig. I dig.

You know, Tina Fey said she was finished playing Palin by November 4 and that she would turn down any offers to continue if McCain actually won, so your one McCain "pro" isn't very sound.

Damn. Information I could have used before the election....
