Turn and Face the Change

Okay, it’s time to go out and vote, my bitches. This has been a long, exhausting couple of years (I can't believe this election cycle started when I still lived in Boston (Goddess, I miss that city)). It should come as little surprise that GayProf fully supports Barack Obama. While he was not my candidate in the primary (That was Bill Richardson), he has nonetheless won me over (starting with his speech on race). It would also be supreme foolishness to imagine that a McCain victory would do anything but push this nation further into despair and chaos.

Rather than rambling on about actual issues or platforms (which nobody seems to care about these days anyway), let me give you some unconventional reasons to vote for Obama today:

    * An Obama victory would be the first time since JFK that we had a hot president. I suppose Bill Clinton had some charm among hetero women, but, whatever. . . I want a commander in chief who is smokin’ by gay standards. We are a much better judge of male beauty.

    * Obama is just a fun word to say.

    * An Obama victory will really piss off the radical Christians in this nation. That always makes me happy.

    * Massive numbers of Democrats will finally be able to wean themselves off of the Xanax that they have been taking for the past eight years.

    * I have it on good authority that one of Obama's first executive orders will be to reunite Charlie's Angels to capture Osama bin Laden.

    * Having young children in the White House will mean that we will have the pleasure of seeing swing sets erected on the west lawn of the White House. Who could be anxious about the future of the economy when you are watching kids run and play? If Chase bank fails, maybe they will even get a pony.

    * Not having Sarah Palin hanging around the White House will mean that we won’t see the west lawn turned into a Turkey Shoot.

    * There will be a 0.000002 percent chance that Congress will actually do something productive in the next two years

    * The rest of the world will think that we might have some sanity as a nation after all.

    * Michelle Obama will join the ranks of Jacqueline Kennedy, Rosalynn Carter, and Hillary Clinton as accomplished and smart spouses of Presidents who deserve respect in their own right. Okay, I actually loathe that this nation draws in spouses as a measure for electability. Don’t even get me started about that cookie recipe bullshit, either. Besides, if ever there was any doubt that the “First Lady” position was meaningless, Laura Bush proved it by being a total void of a person. Nonetheless, I can’t help myself in fantasizing about Michelle Obama using her talents and intelligence in a new administration.

    * Even more importantly, Michelle Obama will be the new Jacqueline Kennedy in terms of style and fashion. Indeed, I have already heard colleagues and friends of mine recommending that people dress like her (and not just the drag queens, either). Personally, I would love to see her rock a pill box hat. How did that family get to be so insanely good looking?

    * We will no longer have to hear the term “maverick” thirty times a day.

    * I can keep my Obama t-shirts as mementoes of an historic campaign rather than turning them into rags to wash my car.

    * Sarah Palin’s lack of awareness about international affairs and basic news will be rejected as unacceptable. Heck, it might even mean that the rest of the nation will be required to learn about the world around them.

    * Joe Biden’s borderline Tourette syndrome will provide comedians with comic gold for the next four years.

    * It will open the door for a GayProf campaign victory in 2016.

Now stop reading this blog and vote.

I so needed this today.

Have you seen this?

Doug said...

GayProf for Prez! If enough of us write it in, maybe you'll get elected today.

Speaking of write-ins, I wonder how many votes George Washington got today. His name was the sample in the voting booth about how to write in a candidate.

At least you won't be running for President as a resident of Texas. A plus, I'd say.

Nik said...

Voted. And voted this best blog post of the day.

Also. Word verfication? Cheak. Indeed.

I may actually be able to celebrate American Independence Day next year.

(I guess that's not really funny, though.)

Mel said...

Sweetie, if you miss Boston, come back. We'd love having you in this neck of the woods.

So with you on Michelle Obama - classy all the way. I noticed, though, that you didn't include Eleanor Roosevelt in your First Ladies of Class list.

My American friends rawk.

Obama is way hotter than JFK. And I'd totally vote for you. TWO hot presidents in a row? I'm not sure the world could handle it.

historiann said...

But GayProf, you won't be old enough to run for President in 2016!

Alex said...

Hah! I don't think Obama is hot; he's just slightly better looking than average, and fit. Michelle Obama is average or below average in looks (seriously? her hot?!)

Kevin said...

About that Charlie's Angels reunification...do we have to wait until January for that to happen? That egghead, Bri Duncan, was always tripping and falling at the most inopportune moments! Good times...good times.

Excellent post, and just my speed too!

ReggieH said...

Where do I get my "GayProf 2012" bumper sticker?:)

CoffeeDog said...

I am excited about Obama too. And the kid thing, it will be fun to watch that unfold as well, dog, swingset, all of it!

Great blog as for me. I'd like to read more concerning that matter. Thanks for posting this data.
