“Hey, Dad.  Who you gonna vote for on Tuesday?”

“It’s like the 3 Stooges…really…it is.  That’s what it is.  3 Stooges…anyway…Everyone knows that McCain equals 4 more years of Bush, and no one wants that.  Hillary or Obama, I don’t know.  I’ll pick one when I get there.”

“Mom, who you voting for?”

“It’s like we all say, McCain is like Bush, and we don’t want that.  But like the girls at work say, ‘I don’t know if we can trust Barack…we don’t know anything about him.’ And then for Hillary it’s a question of if she can really lead us.  I think she can, and she’s got Bill too…Who cares about his personal life?  We all have our personal lives.”

Sophisticate?  Discerning?  Bitter?  Angry?  Liberal?  Conservative?  Elite?  Working class?  Rural?  Red?  Blue?  Educated?  Provincial?  Gun owner?  Hick?  Whole Foods?  Meat eater?  Vegetarian?  Jazz?  Country?  Nascar?  Golf?  Apple pie?  Cannele?  Potatoes?  Quinoa?  Pick up?  Prius? 

If it were only so easy.

The 3 Stooges might think so.
