Kerry’s getting trounced in the Pumpkin Poll! Get over there and vote! Let’s turn this around!


Four more years of this? Posted by Hello

Vote Kerry! Posted by Hello

Another sign that the election is right around the corner is all the links to political video clips and games that have been turning up in my inbox. A sampling:

Give Bush a Brain

Contrasting Big Tough Dubya with pansy-ass Edwards

What Bush was saying while fixing his hair in the previous video

Now Watch This Drive (the Fahrenheit 9-11 trailer)

Partisan Pumpkin Carving

Inspirations and tools for the last push before Election Day:

I ran 7 miles this morning in my Run Against Bush t-shirt!

Here‘s a great little music video for lefties. OK, it’s a little cheesy and the guy can’t sing, but it’s worth watching anyway!

I’m going to host a MoveOn phone bank party on Election Day, from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. We’ll be calling Kerry supporters to remind them to go to the polls. Bring your cell phone and stop by whenever you can. For details, click here. To host your own party, click here.

And a rallying cry from Michael Moore:

Forget the laundry. Let the dirty dishes pile up in the sink. Break out the TV dinners and tell the kids to do their own homework. My friends, I need you to put your daily routine on hold for the next 144 hours.

You’ve only got to help for the next 6 days. That’s it: no long commitment. No hidden fees. You can cancel at any time, and these five albums are yours to keep, free of charge. But I need you to act now — operators are standing by.

I’m hoping you dedicate every last second of time in this final week to getting out the vote. Skip work or school next Tuesday. Play hooky for Kerry. What are you going to remember in 10 years? The memo you rewrote for LuAnn in accounting? The lecture you slept through on high modernism? Or the way it felt watching the returns come in on Tuesday night, knowing that our national nightmare is coming to a close and you helped put us over the top. Take it from me: the dishes can wait.

Let’s hope the luck holds through next week for another team from Boston…

About This Blog

I'm an American who started blogging when I moved to Russia in 2004. Eventually I moved to Sweden, where life is pleasant but uneventful, and stopped blogging for lack of interesting things to say. And then I joined Facebook, which further destroyed any motivation for blogging. Maybe someday I'll start blogging again, but for now, this blog is dormant, an archive of The Russia Years: 2004-2008.
