I swear that the person they’re talking about in this video is that other motherfucking, cocksucking lazy fuck who couldn’t get out of bed in time to vote named Jen Wang, and not me:
Thank you, Ashley!
The Associated Press has reported that overseas began lining up in Indonesia at midnight to cast their vote in the Democratic primary today, kicking off a week of overseas voting:
CBS News correspondent Barry Petersen in Tokyo says, for Americans living abroad, it’s never been easier to follow the election. Candidates have web sites where the interested can see position papers, watch campaign rallies and even check out the latest commercials. “It’s almost like being home,” says Petersen.
AP also explores the benefits reaped by the favorite Democratic candidasian in Indonesia, Barack Obama, who lived in the country from ages 6 to 10.
“There is a bit of rooting for the hometown boy,” said Tristram Perry, the public diplomacy officer at the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta, as more than 100 voters began gathering at the J.W. Marriott Hotel in the bustling capital.
Dayum, I get razzed for calling Missouri my home slice even though I lived there from birth to age 7… does this now officially give me an excuse to claim it as my homeland? Perhaps not… even I can accept that it’s a bit of a shaky bid. Still, here’s to Americans in Asian countries stepping up for reprzentasian! They totally want one of us in office!
Most importantly, this overseas turnout proves that there is not excuse to avoid voting. If your fellow patriots are lining up way the hell across the Pacific to take part in the primaries, you should be too. If you’re a registered voter (as you should be) with your feet on the mainland in one of the 24 Super Tuesday states, your Amazian Ass better be voting today.
Everyone is, as should be expected, filled with interest and excitement regarding the fascinating turnout of last night’s Iowa caucuses. The message – candidates can surprise ya, especially in Iowa!
Even though only 1.4% of Iowa is Asian, we love the thought of our Midwestern black-haired-almond-eyed brethren shuffling through the cold to their caucus locations, choosing their caucus seats carefully, and making a tangible impact on the direction of this election. How we love our caucusing Asian brethren! Caucus-asians! Cauc-asians! Oh wait, shit, that “Caucasian” is already taken…a brand new word ruined before it even began.
Anyway, keep it up, and that means you, future Caucus-ers! You Rock-us! We are also pretty sure you didn’t shuffle for the nerd on the left.
The hilarioso fellows at Reno 911 have partnered up with the rocking people of DeclareYourself.com to create a cache of tongue-in-cheek PSAs–challenging demographic groups notorious for low voter turnout (i.e. young people, Asian-Americans) NOT to vote.
Not always, my friends. Not voting is a true disgrace. I believe this girl in a bikini actually votes –she can stay.
