Undecided voters…

Ran into this David Sedaris link/quote about “undecided voters” in the comment section over at Digby (credit to “victoreador”):

To put them in perspective, I think of being on an airplane. The flight attendant comes down the aisle with her food cart and, eventually, parks it beside my seat. β€œCan I interest you in the chicken?” she asks. β€œOr would you prefer the platter of shit with bits of broken glass in it?”

To be undecided in this election is to pause for a moment and then ask how the chicken is cooked.


To note this was in regards to the 2008 election, but it still holds I think.


You know now that I think of it – I’m pretty undecided myself this year so maybe the joke is on me!
