Our political sense of humor....



When it comes to politics, The Nurse and I discovered that few share our sense of humor. Reminiscent of the year that I dressed as Monica Lewinsky on Halloween at my new Insurance company job, The Nurse took a similarly tasteless approach to Halloween and dressed as Ashley Todd. You know, the mentally distressed McCain volunteer from Pittsburgh who falsely claimed that a large black man attacked her for being a McCain supporter and scratched a "B" into her face while commanding her, "you WILL support Obama!" Heh.
Problem is, The Nurse cruising the neighborhood all made up with black eye, backwards "B" and McCain/Palin pin, it became very clear very quickly that no one was getting the joke. It became a question of safety, and the uncomfortable looks and comments she was getting made her ditch the costume after only an hour or so. WE thought it was hilarious anyway....
So one day before election day, lets make sure the joke is on McCain this time. Be sure to get out and vote tomorrow if you haven't already. But if you're in Chicago, don't be afraid to "vote early and vote often," if you catch my drift. Kidding, kidding. Well, sorta. I plan to vote tomorrow no matter how long the line, but I'm counting on a short wait. We shall see.

Ms. Missive said it best, but it bears repeating; LMFAO - Hiss-freaking-sterical. T is a gem.
