|Okay, so the subject matter doesn't reflect the post, but you'll thank me for checking this out later.
"Are we so lost we have to be sold our own democratic right!?" So yeah, politics and fantasy baseball rarely share the same dance steps, but this shit is so awesome and so hilarious that I just had to post it today.

For those of you unfamiliar with Craig Ferguson, he's the guy that comes on after the Letterman show on CBS. He's a recently sworn in American Citizen, and this is his first Presidential Election. Anyway, I'm probably preaching to the choir here, because you guys all sound like well rounded citizens and pay attention to this stuff on a regular basis, but it's worth watching anyway. If you watch one video on YouTube today, watch this one.
Also, please don't let this thread turn into a partisan discussion about politics. I'd rather keep this about citizen participation instead. I have my political leanings in one direction, but I'd rather not know yours so that I'll still like and respect you in the morning.
