We're baaaaack...!! It's election time in America again, which means it's prime time for nuts, dicks, and boobs! Please feel free to welcome us back by sending any sort of food or - of course - tube socks. Also, it would be fun if you would leave some comments. (Unless, of course, they're negative comments. I mean - who needs that?)

Who's Your Candidate?
(Video from LisaNova)
Welcome to The First Nuts Dicks and Boobs Straw Poll...
If the U.S. presidential election were held today, which candidate would you be most likely to vote for? What factors most influenced your choice? Use the COMMENTS section below this post to register your vote.
I'll start. I'm going with Barack Obama, or Obama-sama, as we call him here in Japan. I'd also be very happy with John Edwards and I'd support Hillary Clinton, albeit less enthusiastically. (I just think there must be more than two families in this country from which to choose our presidents.)
Obama has an electricity and charisma that hasn't been seen on the national stage since John F. Kennedy. When he speaks, he is able to lift people's spirits and make them feel good about themselves and their country. It's precisely the opposite of what Bush has done, which is to make people feel afraid of their government and the world around them.
But the number one reason that I'm with Obama is that he has been clearly against the criminal war in Iraq since the beginning, unlike most (not all) of the other Democaratic candidates. Democrats who voted for the war now find themselves trying to explain their votes to an angry electorate. I believe that most of the Democrats who voted for the war, even though they may have had serious doubts, did so because they were afraid of being labeled unpatriotic if they voted against it. Bush and his henchmen (not to mention the media) were very good at pushing that particular theme, and I think a lot of people just caved, pure and simple.
But make no mistake. This is not the Democrat's war. This is George Bush's war, and all the Republican attempts to spread the blame are doomed to failure. The American people are smarter than that.
