Debates, Cakes & Hot Plates

It doesn't matter if you're in New York or New Guinea, you are hearing about this Presidential election. If you are like me and happen to be in one of the most liberal cities in the United States, it is safe to say that you are getting bombarded with electoral-driven messages. Whether you are to "Choose or Lose" or "Vote or Die," the one sentiment is get yourself out there and vote. So tonight, we did what any group of 20-somethings do, we ordered Thai, grabbed some wine and watched with anticipation as Biden and Palin went at it. Half of the group lurved Obama and half were praying that Palin wouldn't buckle under the pressure.

After watching both debates, it has become abundantly clear that this race is becoming one of the most popular political spectacles that anyone has ever experienced - regardless of your party affiliation. First, there was the new, young Senator on the scene from Chicago. Then, there was the experienced POW that has served in the US Senate for nearly 30 years. However, it wasn't until the Governor from Alaska jumped into the mix that things really started to get interesting. Whether it's her bold claims, proximity to Russia, Midwestern accent, or her fancy up dos - people officially have Palin fever. Some of the funnier elements of the Palin mania are Tina Fey's uncanny skits as the VP candidate. It doesn't matter what side of the party you stand's just completely funny.

Either way, it will be fun to see how this election shapes up. Hope to see everyone at the polls!

Who doesn't like a political baked good? (Thanks Rob)
