2008 St. Patrick’s Catholic Church - Polling Site
posted by November 4 at 13:53 PMon
We are sitting sitting on the front steps of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in North Capitol Hill, a friendly neighborhood polling site, reflecting on participating in a democracy. There are currently no lines here. Presumably, everyone is busy getting their free sex toy from Babeland so that they can use it in the voting booth later. When we walked up to the church, a fellow citizen was skipping through the front door with a smile on his face. We assume that, being an American, he is free and happy to vote. One of S.E.C.B.’s roommates is not even registered to vote. We assume that, being a dickweed, he is imprisoned and sobbing uncontrollably, at home, in a pool of his own waste.
But enough of this. Today’s theme is Hope and Change.
The polling site is in the basement of the church, well-lit and decorated with laughing toddlers spilling out of an adjacent daycare. At first we got lost, confused by green signs labeled “vote” pointing in two different locations. It turns out that one is pointing towards an elevator and another towards a flight of stairs. Democracy is for everyone.
Except our dipshit roommate, apparently.
