Rock the Vote and the L-Word


In one of my countless broadsides against Rock the Vote, I wrote:

The problem with Rock the Vote is that they are liars. They claim to be non-partisan when they are in fact run-of-the-mill young liberals who either use youth as a Trojan Horse in order to conceal a message nobody would want to hear from them otherwise, or they simply believe that youth and liberalism are synonymous and therefore bask in their own authenticity.

Now via Threedonia I found this Rock the Vote video appeal. I’d like to think that even liberal young people would see through the contrived, condescending lameness. It’s like Thomas Paine’s Common Sense, only for ADD-addled morons.
