30 seconds of your time

Hello! Nice to see you, fellow elevator-rider. Floor 13, please.

Wow, we really ought to be taking the stairs, oughtn't we? Looks like neither of us has missed a meal lately, heh heh. Well, since we've got nothing else to do, let me spend thirty seconds telling you why you ought to vote for my presidential candidate of choice, Barack Obama.

Obama will end the mess in Iraq. He'll undo the scary overreaches of the Bush administration and return the executive branch's power to its constitutional limits.* And he won't appoint judges to the Supreme Court who want to roll human rights back to the Dark Ages. He has strong family values and an incredible work ethic. Plus, for the price of just one presidency, we'd also get the most awesomely hip First Lady since Jackie Kennedy.

Hey, that only took about ten seconds. Now why don't you tell me about your presidential candidate of choice? Or, better yet, why don't we ditch this whole elevator business and go get a drink?

*why this isn't getting more media traction is so beyond me

More Thinking Parents tell you why they're voting for whom they're voting for, in thirty seconds or less.

  1. I hope he will end the mess in Iraq, if it is indeed endable.
    But the number one, imperative, I-have-blinders-on issue for me is the court.
    Folks don’t realize how much influence that single branch of government has over our day-to-day lives. I’d like to appoint round-the-clock body guards and physicians for Justice Stephens until January 20, 2009.
    On a lighter note, did I tell you that someone STOLE MY OBAMA MAGNET right off my van a couple of weeks ago? Its replacement has arrived and I shall not be moved.

    Ha. That (comment above) is why my O magnet is on my fridge, for now, while my car just gets a sticker. If someone wants to sit there picking it off, he can have it. The magnet is just too tempting.
