I put off my weekly rundown of the Bears game (Yay Sexy Rexy!) and the genesis of my Sixers posts in order to wack you over the melon in case, you know, you DIDN’T HEAR that today is election day.
From what I’ve heard so far, the lines are long (great!), people are showing up with their entire families to vote for the first time (flippin’ fantastic!), and African American voters in some parts are having their IDs heavily scrutinized before they’re allowed entry into booths (eww).
However tonight shakes down, let’s just keep in mind that if McCain wins, I move to Toronto (the Bata Shoe Museum in downtown Toronto contains Napoleon Bonaparte’s socks). But let’s also keep in mind that the car you drive is a good idea of how you will vote.
Domestic brands, such as GMC, Ford, Chevrolet, and Buick, seat drivers who are mostly pro McCain. People driving Mini Coopers, Subaru, Saab, and Honda all plan to vote for Barack. McCain is throwing some D’s on that bitch, especially with full-size truck owners and full-size and luxury SUV owners. Obama is getting that hybrid love (no Jamie Lee Curtis), as well as the vote from station wagons, sport wagons, luxury wagons, hatchbacks, and luxury crossover vehicles.
Check out the oil my pro-McCain Cadillac con-sumes!
This study leaves Nissan owners like myself out in the dust. Are more likely to vote for Nader since our cars get average MPG but have cool tail lights? I don’t know what conclusion I can draw based on my Altima, but I’m gonna drive down and vote it up today and hopefully keep my passport on ice tomorrow.
