Quote Of The Day – Will Rogers

Today’s Quote Of The Day comes from Will Rogers (1879-1935), a stage and screen star, circus and vaudeville performer, cowboy, humorist, newspaper columnist and social commentator. His humor and folksy style allowed him to poke fun at pretty much everyone, especially politicians, without really offending anyone. In 1928 he mounted a mock presidential campaign as the “bunkless candidate” of the Anti-Bunk Party to prove his assertion that all campaigning was bunk (wack). His only campaign promise was that, if elected, he would resign. On election day he kept his promise after declaring victory and resigned. Tragically, Rogers died in 1935 at the age of 55 in a small airplane crash in northern Alaska.

will-rogers-2Today’s quote is particularly relevant because today is our election day, and I believe it will be a very close race. Be sure to get out and vote!

I won’t presume to tell you how you should vote. I’m personally voting for Hillary because I think she’s less horrible than Donald. I will ask, however, that you please, please, pretty please  resist the temptation to cast a protest vote for someone who can’t and won’t win. In case you missed it the other day, here again is Funny Or Die’s “Are You Fucking High?” video for your viewing pleasure while you wrestle with your own Decision 2016.
