I find this mesmerizing. Looks like some young and clearly talented husky lad got a video editing program for his birthday. After that, all it took was memorizing the words to Fun's 'We Are Young"song to create ... magic.
I voted for Mitt Romney.
I'm just waiting for you to call me a "racist," "woman beating," "nazi," "homophobic asshole." Because in the last week alone, I was called each of those things for making the most humble and meager of endorsements on Facebook.
My guy lost, your guy won. Ok, the sun still came out this morning, I'm still alive and baller.
I'm 34 years old, sexy, and the first presidential election I voted in was 1996. Since then we have had 4 years of Clinton, 8 years of George W. Bush, and 4 years of Barack Obama. During that time I have seen the Senate and the House of Representatives change hands multiple times. Meanwhile, the people who criticized me have seen: their first period. Congratulations, you know so much about life.
Some of my very best friends are Democrats. Some of the people I like and respect the most are very liberal. I like them. They like me. It's not a big deal.
It used to be that when people had different points of view, they realized that there are more important things in life. So, for many years I've been the lone Conservative Libertarian Republican in a sea of Liberal Democratic good friends. And you know what? For like the past decade and a half, that worked out awesome. I didn't care that they had a different view on the role of government, and they didn't care that I had a different point of view. They didn't care, because I was their friend, because I'm nice to people. I like people, I like people who agree with me and I like people who don't.
It's insane to think that you should not be friends with people who have a different perspective. It's small minded and sad. If you are only friends with people who share your politics, you might be missing out on some really good friends and possibly even some points of view that you might find interesting.
Judge people by how they treat you. Do they seem nice to you? Do they seem like they care about you? Ok, if you answer "yes" to both of those questions, then you have a friend. Don't throw away a friend because they don't share your bullshit politics.
I blame Facebook for the lack of civility. People aren't really accountable on there. Trust me I know. I have been called every horrible name in the book by people, and then I see them face to face and they become total pussies. It's because in real life you can't treat people with such a high level of disdain without risking a real life consequence. And trust me, the people who are the loudest, most obnoxious and hateful people on Facebook are the biggest hipster little pansies you'll ever meet.
I've always been a big supporter of diversity. I have close friends of every race, sexuality, and background that you can imagine. It also means that I believe in a diversity of opinion. I know that the haters will pick through this to find ways to call me names, (i've heard them all, so you are kind of boring to me) but I do hope that people will think a bit more about what is and is not really important in life.
Who wins an election? Or which nice people might be good friends in your life?
Oh c'mon asshole, pick the second one!
It's ok little girl, it'll all be over soon. Unless it's extremely close and they have recounts. Or if it's a tie in the electoral college, which could actually happen. Then it becomes a real mess. Great, now I'm crying.
A lot of political pundits have made their final predictions for today's presidential election. They have carefully examined all of the polling data, looked at historical voter models, and then come up with a detailed and insightful analysis. That seemed like a lot of work, so I drank seven Four Loko's instead.
I think my analysis is solid.
According to my state by state breakdown, and careful examination of all the likely electoral college implications: I have Bob Dole winning. Yup, Bob Dole. Suck it hippies!
Whatever, that's as good a prediction as anyone else's, so here are some pictures of cats pooping in toilets.
