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. “Can I interest you in the chicken?” she asks. “Or 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!
