hey kids! vote or die!

i was at my neighborhood mega-bookstore the other day and my better half pointed out the following two books. holy crap. is nothing sacred?

you can't make this stuff up. i kid you not.

i took the time to skim through each book at the store. the McCain book did a good job of painting her dad as a decent man + hero (glossing over some of the fine details in between, of course), while the Obama book over-emphasized how different Barack Obama was from the rest of us (focusing on his life abroad VS his work at in the US).

now i'm not claiming editorial bias, but if i was an impressionable young kid who knew nothing about either man, i know who i'd be voting for, and he sure isn't young, progressive, and charismatic. U-S-A! U-S-A!

...and this kids, is why you have to be 18 to vote.
