I don't really intend to make any more comics regarding the upcoming presidential election. To my mind, the system is so broken that the only possibility Americans have of some sort of chance is by voting for Barack Hussein Obama. Third parties aren't going to matter until 2012, when the ridiculous ideals of fear-mongering neo-conversatism are considered an outsider viewpoint. Many of you stand behind third parties and plan to vote for them, and I respect and agree with the sentiment, but if you continue to support this ideal in our current condition you're only going to make it more likely for John McCain to be elected president. And aside from him being fun to draw, this is a Bad Thing.
I believe that regardless of what you want to symbolically anti-vote for, an Obama presidency will represent a desperately-needed hard-reset in American idealism. The message it will send to the world will help to more rapidly heal the gangrenous wounds left by Bush, and in time will make the idea of having a non-Caucasian male president not that a big deal, which in itself is a big deal. Also, despite the fact that John McCain sings little jingles about killing innocent civilians and admittedly does not know how to use a computer, it's still up in the air that Obama will be voted president. This is ludicrous.
So I expect every single American person reading this who is able to register to vote and vote for Barack Obama for president.
The engine of America is smoking and making clanky noises, ladies and gentlemen. We can worry about the radio when we hit the next gas station -- if we can make it there. Obama is not perfect but for a hitchhiker he's pretty good-lookin and he has a half-gallon of gas and says he knows how to work on cars and he doesn't seem too weird so let's pick him up.
