Why Young People Should Vote

Here’s a link to a video of an interview with two West Virginia voters of a certain age, both women, who support Sen. Clinton. The first one just really, really likes her. Cool. The second one won’t vote for Sen. Obama because “He’s a Muslim,” even though she knows that he says he’s not. Obviously, not cool.

Since the Supreme Court is OK with a law that prevents nuns without driver’s licenses from voting, but would probably strike down a statute that prevented bigoted morons from exercising their franchise, even if the state of West Virginia were to pass such a law (which I kind of doubt, but that might just be the bigoted moron in me), the only solution is for you, the alleged young, non-moronic readers of this blog, to get out there and dilute the influence of the bigoted moron bloc, which is known for its high turnout. Off you go!

    Hey, what about old voters? There are plenty of old bigots to offset too!

    Judy — My point, to the extent I had one, was that college-age voters usually don’t turn out as heavily as older voters. I have a feeling that’s changing, though.
