... but I love this:


If you wanna help people stay in line on election day (or right now if there's early voting where you are), you could show up with umbrellas, hot coffee/cold water, lawn chairs, etc. Last time, lines in Ohio were 8 hours long. The Republicans are hoping people give up and go home. We've gotta hope they don't.

Bonus: Samuel L. Jackson voices a No On Prop 8 ad:

I just waited for 3 hours to vote absentee in person. The Obama people were bringing water for the old folks, and had some places to sit for them as well.

McCain's people, unsurprisingly, were just sitting there being assholish.

Good for you! And good for the Obama people too.

*Jumping up and down in glee* assholish how? :D And I love Samuel Jackson.

I'm not a fan of rap music in general but as someone who can remember some of the civil rights movement, I have to agree with him. Ain't no line too long this time. Our weather forecast for Tuesday is ridiculously nice; partly sunny and at least 65 degrees (not exactly Wisconsin in November weather). I'm hoping that's a good luck sign:)

Here's hoping it's nice across the country Tuesday. Or at least across the swing states. *g*

That No on Prop 8 bit was motherfucking awesome.

It's nice to see people rally behind gay marriage -- especially people who kick ass.

I saw that Prop 8 commercial last night and I asked my husband, "Isn't that Samuel L. Jackson?" He said it was (he's a big fan).

That commercial really struck a nerve for me. In the past my own marriage would be illegal. That wasn't right then, Prop 8 isn't right now. The self-righteous (and mendacious) commercials make me mad, and the people coming from other states to stir this pot makes me even madder. I've donated $$ to this fight because it really means something to me and has for a while. It only recently realized it was because I was in an "unsuitable" marriage, myself. :)

*nods* It especially bugs me how they lie. The state doesn't force churches to preside over the marriage of two people of different faiths, what the hell makes you think they would (or could) force them to preside over the marriage of two people of the same gender? But people buy that.

I thought this commercial drove the point home perfectly.

It is. The ground has shifted, I think. I hope.
