Election Madness

I've been pretty good at cultivating extreme amounts of anxiety of late, and it has been deeply anxious-making to watch the U.S. election lead-up to November.

As an Australian, who doesn't get to vote in the U.S. elections but who is ultimately affected by the decisions made over there, it is supremely worrying to see the emergence of Sarah Palin on the McCain ticket. I don't have any problems with her gender, her pregnant teenage daughter, her hair or any other cliched attack: I have many problems with the fact that she is a rank amateur who, for one thing, can't explain what the Bush Doctrine is (Bush is in YOUR party!) and manages to encapsulate the opposite of almost everything in which I believe.

So, for some designy Democratic goodness, check out these incredible pro-Obama images. I think they're stunning and so clever. They make me feel like I can breathe a little more easily. And check out Aaron Sorkin's genius fictional dialogue here.


By the way, this post is dedicated to my very clever friend Wakili who published an article that is now required reading at Columbia University. Required! She's amazing! And she's only 26!
