One of the blond women (I realize that doesn't narrow it down much) was going to a fancy fund-raiser for the Republican party. She looked straight into the camera, her leather skin well-tanned and her wrinkly cleavage showing and said, "I am a Republican. I don't really know what that means, but both of my parents are Republicans, so I've checked off 'Republican' on the ballot every year since I was 18." And then she laughed, like what she just said was so totally hilarious.
Let that sink in for a moment.
I remember a Rock the Vote-type television PSA from a few years ago, with all of these young people standing up and saying things like, "I vote because I deserve to be counted" and "I vote because I want to be heard." One kid said, "I vote to cancel out my dad's vote" (or something like that).
With that in mind, mark my words: In 2008, among many other reasons, I am voting to cancel out that particular blond housewife's vote.
