I know I’ve got everyone guessing about my political leanings, so I’ve decided I won’t keep you in the dark any longer.

I am so in the tank for Obama.

There, I said it.  Now you won’t have to wonder anymore if I’m making fun of Sarah Palin because deep down I really love the way she does her hair.

I actually hate her dumb hair, almost as much as I hate her anti-abortion and abstinance-only-education stances and the sly, folksy way she talks in circles without actually saying anything.  I think she’s a dangerous, calculating, power-hungry politician who will be a total disaster if put in office.  And she’s bad at naming kids.

I like Obama.  I like his approach to healthcare that means that more people won’t be turned away from being eligible for health insurance when they need it most (i.e. when they are ill). 

I like the fact that he is educated and intelligent.  He is articulate, and he doesn’t talk down to the public.  He discusses ideas and doesn’t just repeat mindless, meaningless rhetoric.

I like the way he makes me feel all hopey inside.  I haven’t felt this inspired by a politician in a long time.

If you must vote for John McCain (and…shudder…Sarah Palin), maybe because you think we should start drilling offshore for oil that won’t be accessible for 20 years, or because you want the free market to do for health insurance what it did for the economy, or because you want a president who is so forward-thinking that he doesn’t know how to use e-mail, then that’s fine. 

You should still vote.  It’s your right, and your responsibility, and whomever you are voting for, by all means vote. 

But I recommend voting for Obama/Biden.  I think you’ll be glad you did.
