So. Election Day in the USA. My first general election. Honestly, I was quite excited to vote today. Call it nerdy. Call it crazy. But I was, because I got to participate, because I got to have a voice. I’ve wanted to vote since my dad took me with him to the school next door to mine in elementary. The weather is gorgeous, the turn out is huge, and at 6am the wait was an hour long at my polling place – which, from what I’ve heard, was short compared to many places.

First and foremost, if you’re a US citizen and you haven’t already – go vote.

I could go into politics. I could tell everyone who I voted for and why. I could go into why I did not vote for his opponent. But instead, I think I’ll take a different path and share some of my favorite election day funnies.

Indecision 2008 could keep me busy for hours, if I had hours to spare.

Palin as President is hilarious, whether or not you support the McCain-Palin ticket. The people who thought it up have too much time on their hands, and I’m glad they did! Make sure you click on everything at least twice, as some of them change.

Jib Jab (featured above) is awesome. I particularly loved the cards featuring our VP candidates, Sarah Palin and Joe Biden.

This site has what they call the funniest videos of the election. I agree they have some good ones! I love the SNL skit with Palin and Clinton.

Happy Voting Day Kelly! What an honor, to vote for the President of the United States. I am so proud of you that you have taken your right to vote so seriously and so proudly. I really hope that things turn out the way I hope, I really want to see American history rocked right off of it heels tonight. I so hope that the people have been truly listening and not too waylaid by all the glitz and glamour, but really listen to the words and the promises that could be. I am excited along with you too see the outcome of this battle. May the best man win. I think you know who I would be voting for. Love, mom

I like voting, too. Guess I’m a nerd as well.
