A Different Kind of Switch

By now we're all familiar with the Apple Switch ads. Errol Morris, the creator of the ads, has changed them up a bit for Switch: Election '04, ads that show people giving the reason that though they voted for Bush in 2000, they won't be voting for him again this year.

I found the ads very moving (though the ones where the woman goes, "I'm still a Baptist, but I'm no longer a Republican," makes me giggle) and they only reinforced my desire that Bush not be reelected this year. Simply put, the man scares me.

I'll be voting again this year, though my Democratic vote in Texas doesn't really count for much. Make sure you go and do the same.

Oh! Her accent at the end as she said that was so cute - it made me laugh too!

Just remember, we get to cancel another vote out. I always like to pick someone I know has or is voting for Bush and dedicate my cancellation vote to them. :)

i have the reverse "problem". illinois will decisively vote for kerry, so my vote won't count for much either...but in a good way.

It seems that only a small handful of states will be deciding this election and and even smaller number of lawyers who will no doubt file lawsuits to make a big mess of everything.

ROFL! Girl, thanks for the offer! Hmmm... maybe I'll have to change my dedication. It was going to another local blogger, but since you offered. ;)

If enough of us who think our vote doesn't count in Texas DO get out and vote wouldn't it be a HOOT if Texas went to Kerry's side??!! Funnier things have happened...the Red Sox won the World Series!
