Who the hell are these undecided voters? What is their profile? And more importantly what the hell is their problem? The election is less than two weeks away, there have been 459 campaign commercials aired in the past 30 minutes alone. In fact my lady and I have a favorite Barack commercial which is sad. Its the one when he explains how is mother went over school lessons with him, and when he complained his mother says, "This is no picnic for me either Buster." Really Barack? Did she really say Buster? I find that hard to believe buddy.

Anyway, there is no excuse for a voter to be undecided at this late date. There has been more information on these two candidates than there has in any other past election. There have been numerous debates, websites, campaign stops, television interviews, print interviews, roundtable discussions and Saturday Night Live skits. I am quite sure that these people know who they are going to vote for, they just want to wait until the last minute. In fact, in elementary school, these same people would be the last ones to eat their lunch or a piece of candy, and then when everyone else was finished, they'd mockingly wave their food in front of everyone to feel special. That behavior isn't cute when you get older.

I'd also like to add that if you black people riot if Barack loses, or get overly rowdy and out of control if he wins, I will be very disappointed in you all. As big of a milestone as his presidency will be, you can still be excited and hopeful without losing your damn mind; and if he loses, you still have to work, you still to focus on voting on the local level, and rioting gets you nowhere but in jail. Or if you're in Los Angeles, perhaps rioting will net you some new items for your house. But still..behave yourselves.

I would like to dedicate this particular blog entry to the song I am going to post below. It got me through my arduous run this morning. And yes there is foul language

My friend called it a few weeks ago and said undecided voters are attention seekers, who really know who they are voting for but rather not say to avoid being looked at side ways for their choice.

At any rate it will all come out in the numbers on Nov. 4th; a date that I wish would hurry up and come. I am ready to vote.

ha! its funny you should post this because in this week's New Yorker, David Sedaris wrote an article on the very same subject - who the undecided are and why they are undecided.

and i've never seen the barack commercial you're talking about, but let me say this, my mom used to say buster too lol
