I Knit and I Vote

Being a knitter, I am totally confused on which candidate to vote for.

Obama's logo reminds me of a ball of yarn:

And, McCain's logo looks like two knitting needles and a stitch marker!

Which is more important to my knitting? Yarn or needles? AAAUGH! Politics is so polarized, so brain-numbingly complicated. I can't imagine what voting in America would be like if we had more than two political parties.

Wait. What's that? Nader? Keyes? You mean there are THREE socialist candidates (Gloria LaRiva, Brian Moore, and Roger Colero)? Ted Weill from the Reform Party? Shoot, I remember the Reform Party from way back. And, there are scores more!?!

You mean I can vote for Joe the Candidate?

Why hasn't the media told me about these folks? (Though, I DID see Nader debate a parrot.) But, seriously, I don't know where they stand on the issues knitters hold near-and-dear to their hearts. Where do they stand on left-leaning increases? Artificial fibers? Can we get our country off its addiction to foreign-spun yarns? Circular or DPNs? Is there a League of Knitting Voters I could ask for a pamphlet?

I am going to the voting booth wearing a blindfold. This is not going to be pretty.

This has to be the funniest political post I have read yet.

Needles or Yarn...Chicken or Egg.

Too many choices!!

No one's ever lost an eye to a ball of yarn...

That comment made little sense. Sorry. My new knit-in involves champagne.
