On Vox: I wonder...

...if anyone has contacted Yes on 8 to let them know that Google is wasting their ad dollars by running their ads on some staunch No on 8 properties (it's not just Vox... many less politically-ambiguous and left-leaning sites are seeing them). If I were their E.D., I'd be pissed about that. For either side of the argument, the strategy at this point should definitely not be to try to sway decided voters, but to get the ones in your camp to the polls, so their purchase is just being wasted at this point.

On Vox: Fitting

I just read an article about the celebrations planned for this evening by each of the campaigns. No joke, this is what each has planned:

  • Obama will address hundreds of thousands of citizens in Chicago's Grant Park, which as I understand it is like their version of Central Park or Golden Gate Park. It's a public place that all classes of people identify with and love. 70,000 regular old people are being picked and notified by email that they'll be up front.
  • McCain will be at the Biltmore, a ritzy Phoenix resort that most people in that city have never seen the inside of. It will be filled with 2,000 supporters and 3,000 media people.

If that's not some sort of symbol of the contrast between these two, and the two parties they represent, I don't know what is. Hmmm... I wonder which guy represents me best?

On Vox: Honeymoon

Guess where we're going to be in one month!

A hint:

Chichen Itza
Tales from the Birdbath

We'll be spending most of our honeymoon in Akumal, Mexico, with a drive out to see us some Mayan ruins, followed by a final night at the Ritz Carlton in Cancún to celebrate a certain fine lady's birthday.

Tropical vacations for the win!
