What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Linkee-poo gets out the vote

I would love to say that after tomorrow we can all go back to sleep, but you do realize we're already engaging and have already seen the opening moves in the 2016 Presidential Race. And you thought hearing and reading scary things were over because it's after Halloween.

But go out and vote. And if you're not registered to vote, and you're qualified to vote (mostly, you're not disqualified, everyone else over 18 is qualified), register now. It's never too early.

The truth is, every vote counts. That's an article on some of the more common attempts to suppress the vote. So, exercise your franchise, go and vote (if you haven't already, I did weeks ago by absentee).

I'm not saying Ricky Santorum is a bottom-grubbing low-life who would use the fears of people to raise money and increase his political prospects, but it could happen.

Sure, guilt and shaming may work to get people to the poles, but it's still a dick move. (Grokked from John Scalzi)

What might happen if the GOP gains control of the Senate. Hint, not much besides optics (which may not work well for the GOP).

What's wrong with American politics? I think John Oliver pretty well sums it up in this video.

Rand Paul hasn't learned you can't have your cake and eat it, too. So, he supports voter ID laws, which suppress the vote (mostly of minorities and the poor), but thinks the GOP shouldn't, like, be proud they helped promote all these laws.
