I’m Conservative, Loud & Disappointed … can I have a cookie too?October 27, 2006
As I was floating around on The Google, I realized it had been a long time since I went out and viciously attacked the liberal blog-o-thingee. First, I had to take the edge off my hunger – a Head develops a powerful appetite on the road for Big Bucks – so I decided to find some cookies. Imagine my surprise when an innocent search for “SPRINKLES” led to Liberal Lucy’s Lady Leader Lovefest, a relatively new blog about how we become closer as a community, stronger as a state, and more invested as global players. Closer? Keep your distance: I have a private army and I’m not afraid to use it!
I’ll get back to the cookies but first, Reasons to Say No to Dick and Yes to Jen? These are a bunch of bite-sized (mmm) but well thought out arguments against Dick Devos and for the Gal Governor Jennifer Granholm. Let me refute quickly:
- #11 Environmental Funding Just say “No” to the environment!
- #12 Job Outsourcing Keep those profits high!
- #13 Public Health My plan: stay healthy!
- #14 Middle Class and Minimum Wage I agree: Minimum wage for the Middle Class!
- #15 Stem Cell Research I am opposed to Research. Or stem cells. Let me check my plan.
- #16 Campaign Finance I will finance my own campaign. And Bush’s.
- #17 Drilling in the Great Lakes Another excellent idea!
- #18 Job Creation Like I say: Jobs, Jobs, Jobs to China!
- #19 Tax Plan What? Where? Let me see!!
- #20 Jobs See #18.
- #21 Healthcare Coverage See #20. My job plan is my health care plan!
- #22 Education See #23.
- #23 School Vouchers See #22.
- #24 China v. US Job Creation I’m on the “China” side of this one.
- #25 Amway What is the big DEAL with Amway??
Now back to the cookie thing. Lucy has apparently some sort of degree in Cookieology and has developed an equation of Politics + Cooking = Democracy Cookies. She explains:
Here’s how they work. My friends and co-workers have been alerted that if they show up with an “I Voted” Sticker on November 7th (or promise they filled out an absentee ballot) they get some Democracy Cookies. This is not a bribe, and I’m not asking people to vote for any particular candidate or any particular way on a ballot/millage proposal. This is just a way of saying how much I appreciate people participating in the democracy process by voting, period.
I’m not sure how to respond to this. I feel like I should offer people money or something if they vote but I’m not sure how people going out to vote helps ME. Really, all I want is some of those sprinkles…
