To prove that I'm indeed a political junkie, I'm sharing Sparrow's post for today, which sketches out a YouTube video that I'd dearly love to see.
(Meghan McCain saunters into an empty screen wearing a red t-shirt that pictures her Dad's face, jeans, and boots with stiletto heels. In the background, the Mission Impossible theme song is playing.)
Meghan: I could tell you to get out there and vote for my Dad in '08.
(Cate Edwards comes in and circles Meghan, ending up back to back with her, both of their hands on their hips. Lots of attitude. Cate's wearing a blue t-shirt that pictures her Dad's face, jeans, and high heels.)
Cate: Or I could tell you to get out there and vote for my Dad in '08.
(Both girls pivot slowly to face each other, eyes narrowed. After a minute, they shrug and fist-punch, and turn back to the camera. The background music changes to Alicia Keys, No One, instrumental only.)
Meghan: But we won't.
Cate: Nah. Not here. Not now.
(From off-screen someone tosses them purple hoodies. The girls catch them, put them on, and zip themselves up. Now both of them are wearing identical purple sweatshirts bearing the Rock the Vote logo.)
Meghan: So we'll just stop with ... (Turns to Cate and smiles)
Cate: (Smiles back) Get out there and vote.
Meghan: It's a free country, people.
Cate: Rock the Vote in '08.
Meghan: I'm Meghan McCain, and I approve this message.
Cate: I'm Cate Edwards, and I approve this message.
(They exit chatting side by side, like BFFs.)
