"Vote early and vote often"
I am too. So instead of my pro-Obabma rants that I have been doing--beg forgiveness if you are easily offended, I am a political creature--I will instead share some great quotes about elections and politics in general, which I stumbled across this week. I promise after today (and tomorrow--I have to post the Election stuff that I did at the library for the kids!) you won't hear about presidential elections for at least three years!

I heard Dennis Kucinich say in a debate, 'When I'm president... and I just wanted to stop him and say, 'Dude.'
~ Jon Stewart
To announce that there must be no criticism of the president or that we are to stand by the president right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but it is morally treasonable to the American public.
If we don’t succeed, we run the risk of failure.
~ Dan Quayle (WOW! No other comment is necessary here.)
