I don’t know if you’ve heard, but there’s an election coming up in a matter of weeks. Apparently we all have to elect a new President for this country. It’s a pretty important election, as the United States is going through a rough time right now. There is still the ongoing situations in Iraq and Afghanistan, not to mention the developing problem in Georgia (the one next to Russia, stupid), and that whole deal with our economy going down faster than Paris Hilton on some random guy she just met.
Now, if you’re like me, you live in a state where your vote doesn’t really matter. Illinois is a blue state and will continue to be a blue state. Still, there are some states that will be incredibly important in the election, and they’re known as swing states. One such state is Ohio, and it’s entirely likely that Ohio could end up deciding who the next President of our country is. So it’s a good thing the fine folks of Ohio have their priorities straight.
If there were a guarantee that the Dow would be at 13,000 on Monday, Nov. 24, if Ohio State loses to Michigan on Nov. 22, would you make that deal?
Seems like a pretty easy question to answer. After all, while the Ohio State/Michigan rivalry is one of, if not the biggest rivalry in sport, it’s still just a football game right? I mean, isn’t the country’s economy is far more important?
Apparently not. Fifty-nine percent of Ohioans said they’d rather have the economy in the crapper than have the Buckeyes lose to the Wolverines. Yep, these are the same people who will likely decide the outcome of the election this November.
God help us all.
