For all the crap she and her husband are peddling, this seems to be a proper metaphor, oddly enough.
First Lady Michelle Obama encouraged her husband’s supporters to vote early, because you may find your “toilet overflowing” on Election Day.
“You can also tell people that they don’t have to wait until November the 6th to cast their ballots because you can do it early,” Mrs. Obama told a crowd Friday at the University of Wisconsin in Wausau.
“On Monday I led by example: I mailed in my ballot early,” she said. “I voted for Barack Obama. And I did it because I want to spend Election Day really working to turn out the vote, and that’s something that you may want to think about doing.”
Geez, it’s like she wants an award for mailing in an absentee ballot.
Mrs. Obama continued: “Early voting is important because it gives you that convenience, truly—especially students with busy schedules, families with busy lives.
“You wake up on Election Day—you might have a cold, babysitter gets sick, it’s raining, car broke down, I mean I could go on—toilet overflowing,” she said, to a laughing audience. “There are so many ways to mess up a day when you don’t have a lot of time.”
Most of their core constituency doesn’t even have jobs, so we imagine if they even cared they could find 20 minutes to go vote. Amazingly, Americans somehow managed to get to the polls in years past without early voting. But now it gives Democrats that much more time to stuff the ballot boxes.
