Issues that Matter

I’m having a hard time being excited about the presidential election (surprise, surprise). However, there may be help in letting me know who to vote for. I found articles that lay out McCain vs. Obama on what really matters: Pop Culture.

How do they stack up head to head on the issues that matter to me?

Obama
McCain
Doesn’t follow American Idol? Check! Check!
Has never voted on American Idol? Check! Check!
Video games? Pong None
Musical taste? Javanese flute music Abba. And Linda Ronstadt.
Cried during: Born Free Bambi
Favorite Superhero: “Spider-Man/Batman model” Batman
Favorite movies? Godfather I and II, not III We Were Soldiers, Viva Zapata
Favorite TV? SportsCenter, M*A*S*H, Dick Van Dyke, SpongeBob SquarePants Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Dexter, The Wire
Last movie theater experience? Shrek 3 Indiana Jones
Best fictional President? Jeff Bridges in The Contender David Palmer on 24
Can get remote away from wife? Yes Yes

Really? It’s too close to call. Yet another dead heat for the political race. Guess I’ll have to wait until they declare their veeps and analyze them for bad taste . . .

No more chit-chat, hoomans.
