VOTE! Do It! No Excuses!


Or, as Gwen Moore put it at the Obama rally in Milwaukee:  “If you can’t think of any reason to vote, then vote because they don’t want you to.”

She was referring, of course, to the rash of Voter ID laws through the United States which ultimately seek to prevent some kinds of people from voting. (Sarah Silverman explains it best.)

But for women: really, you have absolutely no excuse not to vote today. We fought and died and went to jail for the right, and there are still people who would prefer that we didn’t. So go. Do it.

& Yes, I’d be happier if you vote for Obama. I think I’ve made that more than clear.


But even if you don’t, vote.
