This strays from our scene a bit, and at the risk of getting preachy, I just wanted to throw one more reminder out there of why it counts to vote.
Although some may feel confident about Obama’s 10-point lead, or if you support McCain, and are discouraged, there’s a lot of reason not to be. Polls are often full of shit. Race and enthusiasm have been cited as influential factors which may inflate Obama’s lead, or McCain’s deficit, whichever way you look at it.
There’s the well-documented Bradley effect and the Buchanan effect and other reasons to believe that the election is still up in the air, other than the polls’ margin of error. We all know sometimes it feels like a coin flip between a douche and a turd sandwich, but get out there and vote. Doesn’t matter who, just vote.
