The votes are in: The Masked Avengers have won!

We are two days away from the American election and it’s getting pretty exciting.

The local middle schools here in Green River, WY have already held their mock elections, participating in the National Student/Parent Mock Election Day. The elections were pretty close, but the Republican McCain/Palin team won at both schools (161-103 at one and 145-120 at the other). I love what the local newspaper, the Green River Star, reported these sassy sixth-graders as saying about the election rumour-mills. One student, Alexander, said he had heard a rumour “that Obama is a terrorist and that he is going to make all white people his slaves if he is elected. He said people should focus on the facts and not rumours.” Another student, Erik, said he heard that “Palin has the IQ of a 2-year-old.”

It would be really interesting to know where these young voters have gotten their info: Fox News (the conservative, Rebublican mouthpiece); MSNBC (Democrat all the way); CNN (the “no bull, no bias” network); or perhaps parents, neighbours or their friendly neighbourhoud white supremacist group? Maybe they’re like me and watch Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show and The Colbert Report for their political news.

In any event, the idea behind the Mock Election Day is, of course, to start training pre-teens and teens to be civic-minded. Studies have shown that these sorts of initiatives mean youngsters are more likely to get out and vote for real when they reach the age of majority (but can’t yet drink alcohol, which I still think is very silly). Voter apathy is a real issue and Leonardo Di Caprio and friends have launched a video “Don’t Vote” to get through to US Citizens: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhDRVKDcXQo

Then there is the more light-hearted side of things with Quebec comedy duo, The Masked Avengers, who just ‘punked’ Sarah Palin by pretending to be the French President, Nicolas Sarkozy (https://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/081101/national/prankster_palin or to hear the conversation, go to https://ca.video.yahoo.com/watch/3842140/10491245). Palin was completely oblivious, but was actually quite diplomatic in the face of comments about hunting with Dick Cheney and the recent porn spoof of her in Hustler. But, as the pranksters said, she didn’t come across as all that intelligent.

She should feel like quite the celebrity, though, The Masked Avengers have similarly pranked Bill Gates, Britney Spears, and Sarkozy himself. Now Palin “the down-home, simple American” has more celebrity cachet to go along with her new $150,000 wardrobe.

  3. Thank you for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I am very glad to see such magnificent info being shared freely out there.

  4. I seriously love your website.. Very nice colors & theme. Did you create this web site yourself? Please reply back as I’m hoping to create my very own website and would love to know where you got this from or what the theme is named. Thank you!|

  5. Thanks for your publiction. Another factor is that being photographer includes not only trouble in catching award-winning photographs but in addition hardships in acquiring the best video camera suited to your requirements and most especially problems in maintaining the standard of your camera. This is very true and clear for those professional photographers that are into capturing this nature’s interesting scenes – the mountains, the actual forests, the actual wild or the seas. Visiting these adventurous places unquestionably requires a video camera that can meet the wild’s unpleasant area.

  6. Hi, Neat post. There is a problem with your web site in internet explorer, would check this?IE still is the market leader and a big portion of people will miss your excellent writing due to this problem.

  7. Предназначение (жизненное предназначение) – это жизненный путь,
    назначенный человеку еще до его рождения.
    Раньше предназначение понималось просто и однозначно, как социальное предназначение, как твой жизненный путь, который предписан тебе твоей семьей
    и окружением.

    Как превзойти призвание и
    предназначение. Дизайн человека или железная воля и авторитет?

  8. Does your site have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an email. I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it improve over time.|
