At this point, I imagine the average "swing voter" as someone who requires hour-long blocks of time to decide on matters such as whether to have an English muffin or toast for breakfast and whether to clip toe nails today or tomorrow. So, I'd actually say that Octomom is probably a step or two above them.

Your average undecided swing voter drops kids like a frat-boy drops farts?

And people want to deport hard-working people who were not born in this country. We can do that after we deport the octomoms and snookis.

"I live in Nadya land. I'm telling you, I'm not kidding you. I'm not normal. I don't know what's going on in the world. If you told me someone won the presidency tomorrow I would be like, 'what!' I so apologize for this answer, but I have no clue who is running against the president. I have not watched TV in 12 years," she said.

She is what they call an 'unlikely voter'. 100% chance she isn't even registered to vote.

Or she is, but in the wrong district.

On the bright side, she probably has no idea how to figure out where to vote, or what day people with a last name beginning with S are supposed to vote on

"I played the flute for eight years when I was little. I won many awards for playing the flute. I was a top flute player, but I don't play it anymore," Suleman said"

I.....no, too easy. I'll just let that one go.

I just couldn't help but facepalm after reading that article.

She's too big for a flute now. That's why she started playing the bassoon.
 
2012-09-06 02:50:23 PM  
In her defense she does have a bunch of kids. Regardless of how she got them or whether or not her having them was smart. Its the fact she's busy taking care of them to the point that she doesn't have enough time to worry about who is the president that sits well with me. It's the people who don't have a bunch of kids that don't know who Mitt Romney is that really scare me.

2012-09-06 02:51:12 PM  
because the only way to listen to music is from a radio. does she not have a tv or a computer or a phone or an ipod?

Millions of Milkshakes

...and also she is going to sing. And she's available at your next birthday, bar mitzvah or team-building exercise.

2012-09-06 02:56:22 PM  
Who cares?

It doesn't matter who they vote for. It really doesn't. The winner was picked already, and all that remains is to put on the pageant to make everyone think they have a say in what happens. In the end, the guy that was appointed by the corporate overlords will take his place, and we'll get a news cycle-- with all the ads, merchandise, and book tours to go with it-- until the next big political "choice" they let us think we have comes up.

Octomom's vote is no more useless than anyone else's, which is to say it's completely useless and always has been.
 
2012-09-06 02:57:00 PM  
Undecided voters at this point are about 5% gay republicans, 5% racist democrats and 90% morans.

When I was five my teacher asked me if I knew who the President was and I said "George Washington?" and everyone laughed at me.

That must be how swing voters feel.

Well, I listen to music everyday through this new thing called a computer. My car has a radio, but I only listen to CDs. So she might not be lying. And also, if you listen to certain stations they don't play political adds...and this might not apply to her, but if you aren't in a swing state they don't play anything.

I have not seen one Obama add in KS. Prolly figure why waste the money.

did I just defend Octomom?
 
2012-09-06 03:04:04 PM  
Good. I don't want her on my side. I would say that as Democrat, Republican, Fascist, or supporter of the Brain Slug party.

Octomom isn't a swing voter, she's a single mom with 14 kids and no job, that has democrat written all over it.

shiat, I live in Michigan (which is one of those kind-of, borderline swing states) and I rarely hear political ads.

Of all the people I've ever known who've convinced themselves that, in a world of sheep, they alone are sharp enough to understand what's really going on... you remind me of all of them.
 
2012-09-06 03:09:28 PM  
Way I figure, if it were advantageous for her to say who she was voting for, she would say it. She wisely put together that it is not advantageous. Answering whether or not she knows who Romney is also opens the same door. There's no advantage to her to talk politics.

The question should have never been raised. Asking about it should be the same as asking 'have you had an abortion/paid for someone else's abortion'. Just don't do it in public.

If you want to go there, talk around it, by asking about the platform kind of crap.

"I live in a village of little kids."

Awesome quote. Let that sink in a bit. It's completely accurate. Imagine living in such a village. It's not like those crazy big families because there are no older ones to help out. You don;t have seniors in high school at the same time as pre-K's. It just you and them and they are all under 8 (or whatever). Now, do you care one rat's ass who the president is?
 
2012-09-06 03:11:45 PM  
She's in California. Her vote is meaningless either way.

If corporate overlords are going to appoint the next president, it has to be Romney, right?

I travel a lot for work and I can tell within 5 minutes of turning on the TV or radio if I am in a swing state. My vote won't count, my state is not a swing state.

but i have selection anxiety!!!!! you know that feeling when you go to the store because you need toothpaste, but they have like 40 kinds and you end up just sort of staring blankly while a knot forms in your gut fully knowing that there isn't a way you could possibly make a well reasoned, informed choice about which one is politically ideal? it is kind of like that...

Given that most people have some degree of reservation about both of the candidates, I can easily see a group holding out to the last minute.

The idea of hearing "Eineey, meaney, miney mo..." come out of a voting booth is amusing to me on several levels.

I'm a "swing voter" or an "independent" as we like to be called. Actually, that's a pretty fair assessment... it's after 2:18PM and I still haven't eaten lunch, I'm really hungry, but can't decide what to eat.

Sometimes I wonder how my ancestors managed to survive.

Obama won the dem caucus 75-25, and still lost the state by 15 points. He only won three counties: Douglas, Wyandotte, and the one with Pittsburg State University.

Utter waste of money.

This year will be the first time my vote will matter (moved to the Missouri side)!

Remember this election cycle there are new crowd managment rules.  Republicans and Democrats vote on Tuesday.  Octomoms vote on Wednesday.

Lame story, bro time:

I was working at a financial services company in 1989, and was setting up an account for a man named William Horton. I made a lame attempt at a joke by saying, "Hey, I'm setting up an account for Willie Horton." A female co-worker asked me, "Who's Willie Horton?", so I gave her the story from the previous year's election.
Her response: "Well, I didn't pay much attention to the election anyway."
Me: "Well, did you vote?"
Her: "No, I didn't bother. (pause) Who won, anyway - was it Dukakis?"

/facepalm
