Lets Hope The Kids Aren't All Fucked Up

For some stupid reason Scholastic and Nickelodeon have been getting kids involved in voting for the next president (well not really, just for fun) for several years. Surprisingly they are often correct! I hope they are this time because they have voted for Obama.

Which reminds me, there has been a lot of talk lately about racism and the vote for Obama. People are afraid that people who are being polled who are saying that they are voting for Obama will change their mind in the voting booth because he's black. I don't believe this for two reasons. First of all, I agree with Michelle Obama when she says that if being black was such a big issue, then he wouldn't have got the nomination. There are a small amount of people who will vote specifically against Obama because he's black. However, there are just as many people who will vote for him for the same reason which I believe will counter it all out.
