Decided (and Determined)

For the record, my vote is in!
Please, get yours in too.


  1. Mine's been in for weeks.
    And I told my parents I refused to move back to the US if McCain and Bible Spice get into the White House, so you can guess who I marked on my ballot.

  2. Haha! This is a brilliant video!
    (btw, Bible Spice? :D) I wonder if you have seen the one by all the actors, "Don't vote! Seriously! Don't!"

  3. anneke-
    Yes! That's a great one! I thought about posting that one a couple of weeks ago but didn't for some reason... and then this one came through and I couldn't resist.
    By the way, "BIBLE SPICE" (very funny, by the way, lilac) is another of the neverending nicknames for the VP candidate on the republican ticket. This one referring to her conservative christian remarks, coupled with her SPICE GIRLS persona.
    Another of my favorites is "Caribou Barbie".
    And my favorite for the Presidential candidate for that party is "McCan't".
    Uh, yeah, I guess you can sense which way I lean in this election. I just really hope my country does the right thing!!

  4. I'm not looking forward to the lines on Monday, but I'm planning to be there at 6:15 and just wait until my vote gets in. Then D and I are going out for breakfast and then work for Obama most of the day (9 - 1 and 4 - 8 shifts - we want to check in on C during the afternoon - he has the day off from school).

    We don't have early voting in MI, nor can we cast absentee unless we have a very specific reason for not being able to get to the polls.

  5. I wish I could have already voted. I' hearing about hour long lines and I'm going with my 3 year old.

  6. OMG that is toooo funny!!! I was too chicken to do it and send it on!!!

    I have worked NONSTOP for Obama...I have never done this before and I don't think I'll likely ever do it again, but this man has GOT to win on Tuesday!

  7. I'm taking my 3 kids to stand outside the polls to hold signs in opposition of a horrid ballot question in our Commonwealth THEN taking them to vote. Set up for misery you may ask? Oh no! Because THEN the older ones may be helping their grandfather work the polls in his hometown. Need to make it clear that in order for democracy to work you've got to work for it.

    Hey, I just made that up! Attest for me if that turns out to be an original statement. :)

  8. I got my ballot here and sent it in a couple of weeks ago. Choices seemed easy this year, stale state initiatives from the Republican side, 4-more years of the same disasters at the top? Sorry, no.
