If You're Gonna Do It, Do It Right

In about 15 minutes, I'm heading down the street to vote. My little role in the 2012 GOTV effort, or as I like to call it, "Operation Visine" (Get The Red Out). But voting is only half the battle.

As the parent of a 4-year old and the caretaker for a new puppy, please allow me to use an analogy that I've used for a couple of years: Voting is like having a bowel movement - you have to do it RIGHT.

You can sit on the couch and crap your pants if you wish. I don't understand that type of thinking, apparenty you HOPE that someone will come along and CHANGE your pants before the smell gets too bad.

You can take a crap in the sink. It's an immature response that might be useful as a protest, (like back in college when the neighbors kept having loud parties and you left an "upper decker" in their bathroom out of frustration) but do you really want to be known as "that guy"? If so, fine. Just realize that it's got the same results as crapping your pants: Someone else will have to clean up the mess. But at least you can proudly say "I didn't crap my pants". As if it matters.

Or, you can be a "big boy" and use the toilet. And while you're at it? Flush. It's the decent thing to do.
