How I, like, vote, okay?
I was a junior in high school when Bill Clinton was elected President. I distinctly remember a group of girls talking about the candidates, and one said, “I would vote for Clinton, he is so hot!” The other girls giggled their agreement, and I sadly shook my head for the future of our country.
These candidates, or their advisors, aren’t stupid, they know where to get seen. MySpace, Facebook, YouTube, MTV… Back when there were three contenders, they all popped up on American Idol.
But I have an idea for McCain’s camp. I was thinking about those girls at my high school, and I thought about 18-24 year old women today who still think it’s funny to call each other a female dog, like it’s a good thing. Girls who continue to put Paris Hilton on a Swarovsky covered pedestal, or imagine that their lives are really a lot like Lauren and Heidi’s. Then I thought about all of those folks that Jay Leno interviews in the street who can’t tell you who the Vice President of the United States is, or who couldn’t pick Al Gore out of a lineup. McCain needs to use that to his advantage…
McCain 2008. Because our country is fierce. (I know, right??)
