None Of These Democrats Actually Drive Trucks (Except Maybe The Nice Lesbian Couple)

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Today is the day with the best likelihood of us posting your nonsense. Like this ad full of total actors claiming they are Democrats who drive trucks! As if! That black lady does not drive a truck! That old biddy does not drive a truck! BUT.

Well, we came dangerously close to tearing up. Despite the total actorness. And the silliness of the giant truck prop gleaming behind all the nice people. (None of whom have Massachusetts accents, BTW.) This ad is probably not going to win Massachusetts’ senate seat for Elizabeth Warren! (Scott Brown did that all by himself.) But it’s nice! It’s stirring! There are happy pregnant lesbians! Send us your nonsense at tips@wonkette.com. We have a real low bar today.

    Happy election day Wonketters!! Here's hoping Willard will appear flushed during his concession speech after receiving a richly deserved votive enema from the American electorate.

    Obama 347 : Willard 191

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      I'm not that optimistic, but I see Obama 305 and +3% in the popular vote

          In today's world, 270 might not be enough. Not enough to avoid litigation at any rate.

          • UW8316154

            No kidding. I'm thinking it has to be at least into the 300's before it is safe from the Supreme Court.

    Only Scott Brown is allowed to drive a truck in a MA election! You know the rules, people!!!

    • OneDollarJuana

      Does he drive a nice pink truck?

      • glasspusher

        A Mary Kay truck? Who knew?

    • PsycWench

      I thought he just had to talk about the truck. He has to drive it too?

      • glasspusher

        Help people move with your truck or GTFO.

      • Katydid

        That's actually better than licking clean pans and washing Koch boots…

    • Terry

      They'd be run by Evangelical groups who'd insist that the homeless people convert before they could get food and shelter.

    Hey! I'm a Democrat and I drive a truck!

    It's carefully camoflagued as a Prius, however, so my liberal friends won't get all panty-knotted…

    • glasspusher

      Yeah, mine is cleverly disguised as a silver one with 196,000 miles on it and the original battery, slightly beat up on the outside for that "macho" look.

    I drive a truck, but it's a hybrid. So I'm a butch lesbian.

    • Katydid

      But are you pregnant? And, btw, why did that nice lesbian lady in the ad marry a pregnant woman?

      • BadKitty904

        And does she always appear and disappear like that? How disconcerting…

      • Biff

        She thought it was hers?

    Editrix,

    I voted this morning at 7AM. Even on a busy day, I'm usually one of the first fifty in the polling place (I think in 2008, I might have just missed the first hundred.)

    When I arrived today, there were already 150 people lined up to vote, which means about 300 people had already passed through the polling place.

    These are hipsters, mind you. HIPSTERS! VOTING EARLY! IN NEW YORK CITY! I mean, I'm sure they were doing it ironically but, really….HIPSTERS!

    This is what a landslide looks like.

    • commiegirl99

      I am voting at the Union Rescue Mission on Skid Row. Have to wait till my FIRST TIME VOTER SON wakes up so we can go together. (And also have to wait till someone else joins me in the chatcave to take over le blog. Which could happen eventually!)

      • memzilla

        Be sure you both wear your CommieGirl® tee shirts, For Freedom! (Also, for teenager embarrassment)

    • glasspusher

      Actor, that's great, but in all fairness, you live in NYC? Folks like you and me on the coasts don't factor much into this, do we? I'm egging on my friends in Ohio and Florida to make my day.

      Yes, I'll take one landslide, please, I'll enjoy it here…

      Oh, BTW, my hopes that Sandy didn't fuck you up too much. My sister and friends in NJ only recently got their power back…

      • UW8316154

        Nate doesn't see a landslide, so let's not get cocky. I am praying (heh) for a 300+ EC win, in order to be impervious to litigation, recounts and the Supreme Court.

        • glasspusher

          I'm not cocky, but here's a story: When I was in grad school, I was asked by a friend how I did on a test. I said I hoped I got a B. He said, hey, hope for an A!

  • Toomush_Infer

    Hey, I drove my F-150, with its' Obama/Biden sticker, down to the polling place in northern Michigan….it took me 45 minutes of standing in a line all the way to the crossroad, but I got to vote against the Emergency Management law and all….Mrs. Toomush got there even earlier….she said when the doors opened, she was surprised that she got a lump in her throat…

    • Katydid

      Actually, I always get a thrill (not down my leg like Tweety), and maybe a little lump in my throat, when I vote. Makes me proud to be an American. But then I guess that's because I'm a commie libtard socialist atheist Kenyan Muslin Other who's going to hell.

    The irony of Scott Brown's defeat will be when he starts representing Jack Abramoff's tribal lobbying clients.

  • cognachas4paws

    Voted at 6am this morning, very long line, but all went well. Apparently, however, things are not going well in Pennsylvania according to Fox News because, horror of horrors, they say a lone Black Panther Party member has been spotted outside a polling place. They've issued an alert about this so it must be a BFD.

    • freakishlywrong

      It's Dejaspew all over again.

  • glasspusher

    I'll be happy to vote as soon as it's 7AM here. My polling place is the fire house next door. My neighbor up the street is the governor of California and votes next door too, so the news trucks with their deep low idling engines have been keeping us all up since about 3 AM. I went out front for a look, they all looked at me, and I said, "Sorry folks, I'm not ready to release a statement!"

    Wishing a happy outcome for us all!

    • BadKitty904

      LOL Toying with the media like that, you rascal – NICE!

      • glasspusher

        Yeah. Here's an update. I pulled out one of my telescopes and showed the last quarter moon to a cameraman a few minutes ago and shot the shit. He said that Jerry is going to vote early and then give a press conference on Prop 30, for funding schools, thus all the media. Can I get a voucher for missing half a night's sleep?

      I'm from Chicago, that's not just a saying. I've voted, my dead parents have voted and, for good measure, all three of my dogs have voted. We've done all we can do. :)

      • Jus_Wonderin

        You need a litter of puppies!

  • BaldarTFlagass

    Wow. Just talked to the guy that bought my old house, he's predicting a Romney landslide. Also, if Obama is re-elected, he will probably have to go out of business (sells high end ranches/real estate), as all his potential customers will just put their money in the bank for the next four years instead of buying that ranch. Also, he told me that "fucking nigger" played golf 110 days while in office. I had to get off the phone. I need a shower.

    • freakishlywrong

      Poor asswits. Businesses are posting record profits and the Dow is through the roof. But, y'know. Math.

    • An_Outhouse

      what dick. I hope people like that don't accidentally shoot themselves.

    • qwerty42

      What does it look like for Barrow? The Republicans have been trying to get rid of him for a few years, and the most recent redistricting may have done it.

      • Misty Malarky

        Actually it's looking pretty good for Barrow, thank goodness. His opponent is real doofus good ol' boy Lee Anderson who refused to debate Barrow and whose commercials consist of 'Barrow LUVS him some Obama!' stuff – and scary black people natch.

        • qwerty42

          He was redistricted out of Athens (lotta commies there) and moved to Savannah (which seems to have gone communist in the past few years, but has had a pretty strong Democratic party even as much of the state went Republican) and now moved to part of Augusta and a lot of rural folks. There has been some mention of his being the last non-blah southern Democrat in the House.

  • ph7

    Good sign! Fox is scaring out the vote by filming a black person standing outside a polling station, which is, of course, intimidation.

    • An_Outhouse

      Lovely comments over there:
      "Will some one call a cop and arrest this guy for loitering."

      yeah, the old 'standing around while blah' offense.

    • Zango Crudmonger

      The comments are full of chest-thumping idiocy, along with this gem:

      "The New Black Panther Party is a front for NAMBLA. They actually share the same office space for their organizations’ headquarters. That is a fact! The NBPP is so mad all of the time because society will not accept NAMBLA!"

  • TootsStansbury

    OT but I was texting back and forth with my daughter. She told me (after brattily saying she voted for Romney) that she chose to use the paper ballot "because it made me feel like a founding father; too bad no quill pens!". Made me laugh; I am a wreck.
