Motive AND Opportunity: It’s a crime NOT to vote!

posted by David Gibson

Via Sarah Pulliam at Christianity Today, some links and info to be sent around by Tuesday:

ONE: Google may be taking over the world before our eyes, but at least they’re doing it with a sense of civic duty. Just plug in your address and this locator map shows you where your local polling place is.

TWO: If you are voting for Sarah Palin, and, uh, the guy she’s running with, Krispy Kreme is giving away a free star-shaped donut “with patriotic sprinkles” to anyone with an “I Voted” sticker. (It also says something about “participating stores only,” which could be a major cop-out. Typical conservative promises.)

THREE: If you can’t guess what color “patriotic sprinkles” are, that means you are probably voting for Obama-Biden, and you are a certified latte-sipper. Hence you should visit Starbucks, which is giving away a free coffee to anyone who says they voted. (No proof needed, which proves they are mushy-headed liberals–or run by ACORN.) Also, be patient–the banner ad explaining the offer takes as long to load as it does to make a skinny mochaccino soy latte with no foam.

What more do you need?

The Spiritual Messages of Chanukah and Christmas -- and Their Downsides
Christmas and Chanukah share a spiritual message: that it is possible to bring light and hope in a world of darkness, oppression and despair.
