“Stop voting for people you want to have a beer with.”

Finally. Someone says it. Michael Seitzman at The Huffington Post in his piece called “Sarah Palin Naked” warns that anyone who saw the Sarah Palin interview with Charles Gibson on ABC and was not “scared out of your freakin’ mind” is not fully present. Seitzman ends with this:

Stop voting for people you want to have a beer with. Stop voting for folksy. Stop voting for people who remind you of your neighbor. Stop voting for the ideologically intransigent, the staggeringly ignorant, and the blazingly incompetent.

Vote for someone smarter than you. Vote for someone who inspires you. Vote for someone who has not only traveled the world but who has also shown a deep understanding and compassion for it. The stakes are real and they’re terrifyingly high. This election matters. It matters. It really matters. Let me say that one more time. This. Really. Matters.

    Your readers may be interested in knowing that I have started a campaign to spread Michael’s words (used with his permission).

    Head on over to http://www.StopVoting.net where you can download a free PDF poster, graphic for your blog, or even order a t-shirt.

    It was only fitting that Michael’s proud Mother was our first t-shirt customer. 🙂
