    Rise to vote, sir

    If you’ve been living in the desert, lost in the woods or stranded at sea for the past couple years and for some reason this is your first contact with the modern world, the first thing I can say is, “really?”

    Because after circumstances like those, if the first thing you want to do is check Get Out the Map blog, well, that’s just cool.  Maybe you have some good travel photography-related advice to share with the rest of us.

    I got off point.  Sorry.

    If the first thing I would say is “really?” the second thing I would say is “Vote!”  Maybe “Eat”, “Sleep” and “Shower,” then vote.  But definitely vote.

    That’s right, GetOutTheMap.net, a travel photography Web site that doesn’t discuss politics is encouraging people to become involved in the political process.

    While politics is interesting, at least from a people-watching perspective, there’s one phrase we really should retire.

    Because every four years, when the United States presidential election gets down to the final two candidates, you can be sure you will hear at least one idiot say, “It’s choosing the lesser of two evils.”


    No it is not, nor has it ever been.  Who do they think is running?  Darth Vader and Lord Voldemort?  With Skeletor and Cobra Commander as running mates, respectively, of course.

    Of course, this scenario would never take place in real life, because you have to be American to run for president of the United States, and Voldem -er- He-who-must-not-be named is British.

    So go vote!  No matter which Irish-American candidate you vote for (McCain or O’Bama), at least get out of the house, wait in line four hours and vote!

    May The Force be with us.
