The Wrong Message

The way to sway young voters is NOT to mug them and carve letters in their face. I only say that because it's the truth and the freedom to vote for whoever you want to is perhaps the greatest perk this "greatest, best country God ever gave man" has left. Also, I live on an island of freewill and independent thought surrounded by a vast sea of W, McCain and Palin bumper stickers and I coulda been on the receiving end of this violent foolishness. A better tactic for trying to get a voter, especially a young one, to validate their decision or potentially change their mind is to ask them questions and to challenge them on what they THINK they know about their candidate.

That's a fishy story. It was a power crime. If Robber did say those things, he was just screwing with her. If she had an Obama sticker, he would have told her that she would be voting for McCain.

The true message here is that there are a lot of sick people among us. Like the bear that was killed and tagged the other day, there is no clear point.

Does that mean I should let the 40 people I have trapped in my basement go? I have the "B" iron brands heating up! I thought that would seal the deal...
