For the Girls / For the Chicks

For the Girls..
This one's for the girls. [thanks to Kristin Breitweiser]

"We need the best Commander in Chief to get us out of the foxhole -- not merely complain that we shouldn't be in the foxhole."


Here's two hipsters who more than likely won't be voting for Ralph

For the Chicks (or maybe the dudes..)
This one's for the chicks [thanks to Bill Maher at Facebook]

I don't think it matters that Ralph Nader's running. It didn't matter in 2004. How many people even remember he ran in 2004? So it's silly to make a big issue of it. At this point, Ralph's just in it for the chicks... or the dudes... always hard to tell with him. But, there can be no doubt, he's got a point about how narrow our presidential debates have become. He's the wrong messenger, because even most of the people who used to like him now hate him, but no candidate is talking about single payer health care, which 59 percent of doctors support. No candidate dares talk about cutting the bloated military budget. Gun control. A carbon tax. Gay marriage. Cloning supermodels. We won't have a debate about any of these things. That's bad for the country, isn't it? In fact, isn't Ralph Nader's platform still the best one? Couldn't Barack Obama, with all his political gifts, be borrowing more from Nader's platform? That would be real change.
