As you probably know, the 2012 presidential election is merely days away (PRAISE JESUS!). Last night’s horses and bayonets-themed debate was the last we’ll have until 2016. The finish line is near. I know this term is overused to death but it truly applies here: our long national nightmare is almost over.
With that said, because of the ridiculous way the country’s founders set up how we elect presidents, this election may come down to how a couple of states vote, including Florida and Ohio, the two most ridiculous states in the union. I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure the Founding Fathers would have scrapped the whole Electoral College thing if they knew any election could come down to Florida or Ohio. I mean, there’s a reason this site has a “Florida or Ohio” tag — those two states are a national punchline.
So Conan unveiled a message to the people of Florida last night. Let’s hope he follows up with one for the people of Ohio as well.
