Whoops The Vote

It’s weird how it’s an election year and NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT IT. Did you hear that Sarah Palin said some ridiculous things to Katie Couric on TV the other night? You probably didn’t. Barely anyone has. I tried to find clips of it online but no one’s posted them. Weird. Anyway, it’s time we broke the internet’s SILENCE on this important issue. THESE ARE ALL GREAT JOKES, LET’S JUST KEEP MAKING THESE JOKES ALL DAY.

I will say this, though: it’s important to vote. We should all register and get out there and pull the lever. But don’t take my word for it. Take the word of a hardbodied old woman who seems relentlessly determined to ensure that the world doesn’t forget that she exists no matter how much the world might wish that she didn’t exist, and a major league goofus who has managed to leverage a successful career into a national punchline by the age of 30.

Ugh. Sorry about all the blogging. What I’m trying to say is: Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher made a get out the vote video on behalf of Barack Obama.

Whose idea was this? Who thought these were influential spokespeople? Who thought this was HELPFUL? Step into my office. Because you’re fucking fired.

Oh, wait, what’s that? You’re offering all first time voters a free time machine that will take them back to the year 2003 when it was still just barely possible to conceive of Ashton Kutcher as anything other than a ridiculous boytoy who could not be taken seriously? To an age when people kind of gave a shit about what Demi Moore was up to for nothing more than the sheer novelty of it? Step into my office. Because you’re double fucking fired.
