I'm not swayed by wining...I just wanna Barack the vote!

Is that how the Republicans encourage folks to vote for them? By wining them? (Honey, there ain't enough wine in the world to make me vote Republican...unless, of course, Hillary gets the Democratic nod instead of Obama, in which case I might be drowning my sorrows in a bottle of Boone's Farm as I give my vote to John McCain...)

On a semi-related note, today was the first time I've voted, like EVER, and I happily gave my voting virginity to Barack Obama. The actual process of voting confused me a little, since--silly me!--I had just assumed that since it's 2008, voting would involve some sort of simple computerized system and not some contraption full of weird little levers, but I figured it out (eventually). I was all excited after I voted and even called MAMA GRAMMARPHILE to tell her that after 9 years of being eligible to vote, I'd finally gotten my ass down to the polling place and actually voted. I was so jazzed about it that I wanted to go back and vote about 17 more times just because it was so much fun, but I suppose they frown on that sort of thing, right?
