Today, Sunday, is Election Day in Brazil (note to the United States: more people might actually cast ballots if you held elections on a day when not everyone has to work all day. Duh. - Oh, that’s right, the Republicans don’t want regular working folks to have the opportunity to vote.)
Anyway, while Brazilians are touching the voting machine screens for who they hope will be the lesser of the two evils in federal office races, my friends back in the States are grumbling about how disappointed they are in President Obama and how they might just sit this election out, come November.
Nobody can disappoint like a friend and ally (remember Bill Clinton?). But as pointed out in this clip, there is a big difference between a disappointing friend and a deadly enemy. Get over yourselves and get out and vote to keep the Democrats in office.
Don’t make me come up there and pull your ear!
For a little comic relief check out Bill Maher’s “New Rules” segment from a recent show where he channels President Obama’s alter ego “Barry Whitehouse.” (NSFW)
