Beekeepers for Obama

October 8, 2008

My friend Marcus just sent this “Beekeepers for Obama” badge to me. I don’t know where it came from (here, maybe?) and it just tickled me too much not to share.

It’s not unreasonable, either: in terms of being a custodian of the environment as well as a voice for the small business-person (and let me tell you, nobody’s buying a second house in Vail off of beekeeping money…it’s golden, not gold), Obama’s definitely the right man. Check out this amazing graph illustrating the distribution of tax cuts in Obama’s plan versus McCain’s.

Now, home come my 60,000 girls don’t get to vote?
