2008 Presidental Election

8

 In the fall of 2008 society was faced with making the choice between Barack Obama, the first black president, or John McCain, another old white president.  I decided to give the people what they wanted, a young, white president. 

Based on the classic 1968 Nixon button I decided to take the classic republican  appeal of Nixon & cross it with the democratic affection for Brokeback Mountain’s gay sex. 

The reaction was immediate and deafening.  I received 3 votes, 7 slaps and half of a toblerone.  I proceeded to pack up my  buttons, leave the old folks home and go watch a movie.  If I am not going to be the one changing America then I won’t no part in it.
