Michael Moore Wants You to Take One of Your Non Voting Slacker Friends to the Polls With You

It's a good idea, right? Listen to America's grumpy Santa this voting season and haul at least one of your lazy-ass friends to the polls with you. Especially if you're in a swing state!

Obama Wants You to Vote Like Your Vagina Depends On It

It's hard to believe (say, about as inconceivable as the concept that some women are raped because it's God's "intention") that Obama could've lost a significant amount of support from women voters after that one lackluster Denver debate.

Sluts Get Ready to Spread Their Sexy Votes Far and Wide

If you believe Rush Limbaugh and a lot of other conservative politicos, we sluts are everywhere these days, and we're doing our level best to ruin this country with our super sexy sex words and fancy ideas about contraception.

The 106-year-old got a tip from the Obama campaign and stayed up on Tuesday night to see her name mentioned by the President Elect.
