Asking For Your Vote

Asking For Your Vote

 

If you are like me, election day just can’t get here fast enough.  It’s not that I am excited to vote—I’m just sick of the political advertisements.

On TV, on the radio, through the mail, telephone messages, you can’t get away from them!

Through it all….here is one last plea for your vote.

Hello, my fellow Americans.  My name is My Odd Sock and I am asking for your vote for the Office of Political Redundancy.

Candidate My Odd Sock

I assure you I offer the needed experience, dedication and character to do…do…do whatever we do with your hard-earned tax dollars within the Political Redundancy office.

 

 

 

A strong believer in education, I graduated 10th in my G.E.D. class (of 13 students).  My years of experience as a bail bondsman, taxidermist and snake-oil refiner have further honed my edge to be your most qualified candidate.

 

I ask you NOT to be swayed by the negative accusations made about me by my opponent.

I admit my own shortcomings; but the charges of money laundering were not proven.  And I have never been accused of harassment (not in this state anyway).  Plus, how was I to know my housekeeper was an illegal alien?  (Frankly, I thought $2 dollars a day was a fair wage.)  Finally, my DUI arrests have never interfered with my work as your public representative!

Other that those minor blemishes, my character is flawless–Just ask my estranged family (I would,  but due to a restraining order I am unable.)

 

 

 

 

 

As your elected official, I promise to silently work on your behalf.  In fact, if elected, you have my word, my vow, not to here from me again till my next re-election campaign.  Of course, your generous donations for my cause are ALWAYS accepted!)

And so goes my attempt at mocking the election season and all of the he said/she said rhetoric.

After working over 20 years in advertising, my best advice for you is not to base your vote on what is said in a thirty second commercial.

Trust your gut and cast your ballot for the best person for the job.  It’s that simple.

Exercise your right to vote and have a tremendous election day!
