Tonight, (11/4/03) CNN, in conjunction with that bastion of high-brow political debate, (otherwise known as MTV),will host a debate between 8 of the 9 Democrat Presidential Candidates in Boston.
According to the linked CNN article:
Hip-hop and R&B fans (28% of 18-29 year olds) Vote Democrat
Country and pop fans (27% of 18-29 year olds) Vote Republican
Rock fans (40% of 18-29 year olds) Are Independent Swing Voters
Even though I think those ‘findings’ are completely bogus, I got to thinking, What will the youngest generation ask the candidates tonight:
Hmm, let me think about this for a second[ul][li]Senator Edwards, Trojans or Lifestyles?Governor Dean, After the debate, can I have your autograph? Or better yet, will you sign my tits?Reverend Al, Where’d you get that cool Mercedes Benz emblem necklace? Where can I get me’s one?Senator Lieberman, A recent poll in Europe showed Israel is the greatest threat to world peace. Who are we to believe, a pro-Israeli Jewish Senator from Ct. or the more enlightened Europeans?Senator Kerry, What would you do to prevent another Enron debacle? Why can’t we just tax the corporations out of existence?Ambassador Moseley Braun, What would you, as President, inclued acne medication in your Naational Health Program?General Clark, Dude, what guarantee can you give me that I won’t be drafted by a President that hails from the military-industrial complex?Congressman Kucinich, As President, will you re-open the Blue Book files and confirm the existence of UFO’s.[/ul][/li]
