A friend forwarded me this email from MoveOn.org.
Dear MoveOn member,
Put down your beer—you’ve got hear this.
In response to the funny, positive Obama ad we’re running right now on MTV and Comedy Central, right-wing radio host Michael Reagan went on an anti-young people rant Monday on CNN:
“Young voters… the night before every election, they go out on a binge—and they end up with a hangover. They end up not voting.”
Riiiiiight. I totally understand that all the right-wingers who are seeing their grasp on power slip away want to believe that. Just doesn’t happen to be true. (Plus, seriously, it’s not that hard to vote hungover.)
Let’s have some fun with this. Click below to take our new Young Voter Pledge: “I will not get soooo drunk on November 3rd that I am unable to vote on November 4th.”
Click here to take the “Young Voter Pledge.” Given the results of the past two presidential elections they may actually be onto something here. We need all the sober voters we can get this time around. The funny thing is that there is actually a website called http://getdrunkandvote4mccain.com.
