If you didn’t see it yesterday, Larry David wrote an op-ed (sub. req’d. Bugmenot login) in yesterday’s Times. He points out that the undecideds just crave attention and it’s the unlikely voters who really are the morons. He makes the best case for voting I’ve ever heard in this last paragraph:
Not only are they lazy, they’re also indifferent. They just don’t believe that voting can have an effect on their lives. Well, it just so happens that right after I voted for the first time, I landed myself a big fat job in Hollywood, a biopsy came back benign and I met my future wife as soon as I walked out of the voting booth. Coincidence? You decide.
I’m a poor bastard who doesn’t get HBO, so I only recently got to see Curb Your Enthusiasm after it came out on DVD. Of course it turned out to be one of my favorite shows. And now that HBO is developing a series with esteemed funny man, Louis CK, I really need to figure out how to expand my basic cable horizons.
