Four More Beers

by Renee on November 5, 2012

Living in a swing state during a Presidential election year is not fun. Let me repeat: Not. Fun. Watching regular TV is practically impossible–switching to mute every time a break comes on gets old fast. But tomorrow America goes to the polls, and (hopefully) by Wednesday we’ll be able to say goodbye to robo-calls, trashy political yard signs, mailboxes full of flyers, and those horrible mud-slinging commercial TV and radio spots.

As I am every time a political contest is put before me, I’m thankful for the right to vote–especially as a woman, living in a Democracy. I’m thankful to those who fought for that right for me, and for my daughter’s right as well. Ali mailed her absentee ballot in from college, realizing the importance of voting in Ohio–she researched her candidates and issues before she cast her vote; I’m very proud of her.

Meanwhile, it’s no secret to anyone who follows me in social media that I’ll be voting for Obama. Hey, he’s the home brewing candidate! And I just don’t trust a guy who has never even had a beer, sorry Romney. (Hope to see you wearing your “I voted” sticker at the local bar, where I’m happy to have a friendly political debate with you–but not here on my blog. This is my space, write your own blog post if you disagree!*)

And if you read my blog, you are likely first and foremost a member of the Party Party, like me. So we can agree to have another beer–and offer cheers to the right to vote for your candidate of choice!

I LOVE the line “And I just don’t trust a guy who has never even had a beer…” 🙂

Coming from another Swing State voter in a town with three Presidential Road Closings, er I mean, visits, I concur!

Cheers to Four More Beers.
