      Be happy and be well. Please be careful about Covid. Viral load matters for infection, spending hours in a house with people is a great way to get infected.

A little ditty to sing on the way to the polls

Pass it around:

Behold the Hairy Men.

The Republicans:

Yeah, they’re making a lot of noise and shaking their spears and shit but there’s still an election in less than a month and it looks very likely that they are going to lose bigly. There’s not a lot they can do about that except stick their tongues out and make obnoxious noises.

Get your ass to the polls and ignore the ugly hairy men. Check your registration at I Will Vote. And if you’re a female living in a voter ID state, get your paperwork in order, especially if you’ve ever been married or divorced. If your name has been changed, you’ll want to be sure it matches the one on the registration rolls. Would I put it past the hairy men to do a haka at the polls this year? No, I would not.

Be prepared.

Then crush their hairy little souls.

Finally, repeat this Tolkien quote from now until November 6 and teach it to every person who says their vote won’t count:

“Despair is for those who know the end beyond all doubt. We do not.”

Pass it around.

Hug a Republican today.
