Can't wait for Tuesday. Didn't think I'd see it in my lifetime. Very proud to be an American right now. meowsandwoofs to everybody.

Et tu Meg? I voted last Tuesday and I'm still getting robocalls from Guiliani.

Leave me alone already people!

Here in Atlanta, people are camping out at 3:30 in the morning in line and waiting up to six hours to vote. Luckily, it only took me an hour.

You'd think that they were giving out free flu shots or gasoline if you vote --
oh wait. They are.

best political wrap-up ever! kitteh style

I voted today...the kitties told me to!

Mandi
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 02:32 PM

...It's like she's trying to tell us something... It was very subtle, but I think Meg wants us to go vote on Tuesday.

Careful, MeowAndWoof. You'll get dinged by folks who say they've ALWAYS been proud to be American.

Does cuteoverload really need political content? This seems like all it will do is piss people off.

Political commteversy in 5...4...3...2...

(EEE! KITTAHS!!! *grabs like mad grabbing thing and disappears into the distance*)

Yep, Matthew, politics'll do that. So I agree with you that far.

Theo
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 02:36 PM

What's wrong with a man who wants to just eat his waffle?

plums
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 02:37 PM

Oh yeah, I voted two weeks ago! I LOVE Oregon's Vote By Mail!

platedlizard
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 02:38 PM

MeowAndWoof, I wouldn't wait until Tuesday if you mean voting.

The expected turnout is going to be insane so vote early if you can.

Looking at the lines in my area, it reminds me of the first election in South Africa post-apartheid. Lines of people stretching out for miles just to be part of the history. Staying there for days because they don't want to miss out on being able to vote.

Amazing.

Kar
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 02:40 PM

SQUEEEEEE!!!!!! I don't remember what the heck either candidate said in those quotes. That wittle black kitty at the end is just too cute.

I already voted (absentee) so I'm done with this election junk! More kittens!

Lindsey ^_^
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 02:40 PM

The darker ginger kitteh is a right winger, probably watches a lot of Fox News. The pale ginger kitteh is clearly in the tank for Obama. The black kitteh is still undecided and wants to know where the candidates stand on tuna reform.

Note to both parties: My vote is for sale
The price: one teeny-weeny-blued-eyed-Marmie-fuzzle-head

i dont think this is the appropriate site for political content

[Call it *seasonal* content, then... - Ed.]

Paige
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 02:59 PM

I think that Meg did a good job of making fun of both parties. But yeah...people are going to get mad. Silly, silly people.

Zoe Doom
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 03:02 PM

I love how people think commenting on the appropriateness of politics on this website is going to make a difference ...

RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE.

Poor kittens. No one deserves politicians.

Emily
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 03:05 PM

Awww... KITTIES!

Six more says! Can't wait for it to be over. I wish they'd find a way to trim the election "season" so it doesn't last so freaking long. Bleah.

And in conclusion:
KITTIES!

 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 03:06 PM

Holy Cow Meg..can't believe you actually made of fun of some of Obama's stupidity???

Wow..wonders never cease..

Go McCain!!!

Lisa, are you gonna make me find *another* S&G quote? [sigh]

Theo
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 03:16 PM

I voted Kitteh '08

Raegan
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 03:17 PM

Yay, Kitteh '08.

nismo
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 03:21 PM

No S&G quotes necessary, Theo - that is why the "wink" is there - although it occurs that could be taken as a slam against the other side also...mea culpa...

I love me some kittens...and promise no more McPalin slams...

Lisa (one of several)
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 03:21 PM

Lisa, you can be one of the Katrinas, too, so far there's only two of us...Golden-can Lisa be a Katrina too?
Devon, dear, go vote and get it over with, dear, you'll feel better. "Like a bridge over troubled"..., oh never mind....Devon.

Katrina

Then I learned to play a little lead guitar
I was underage in this funky bar
And I stepped outside to huff some ornj kitteh...

Theo
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 03:28 PM

Kittehs strategically placed between comments make it all feel better....

OOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMM....

Andrea
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 03:39 PM

Yay Kittens!!!!

Swedie
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 03:40 PM

Got no deeds to do,
No promises to keep.
I'm marmie and tabby and ready to sleep.
Let the morning time drop all its petals on me.
Life, I love you,
All is groovy.

I'm adding the Waffle quote to the Fave Quotes section on my facebook.

Jade
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 03:45 PM

A much more stimulating posting than the scrunchy sewing kitty paws. btw, I have pro-googley eyes sentiments.

nancy
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 03:47 PM

I too will write in a vote for the kittehs! :)

chanpon
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 03:56 PM

Is the black kitty whose name is Ruskea a Finnish kitty? Ruskea means brown in finnnish. I used to have a kitty whose name was Musta, which is black in finnish. Aww I miss my kitty :(

NoraMaria
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 03:58 PM

If only Olbermann and Maddow could add kittehs and goggies instead of commercials...

laylaness
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 04:06 PM

Oh, Teho, that last quote just blew the room away!!!

[insert joyful brass break here - Ed.]

Hey everyone, here's something non-partisan and amazing:

It's just possible that in the upcoming election more people will vote than any other election in history anywhere for anything. And that the winner of the election will have gotten more votes than any person in human history.

WE ARE ALL AMERICANS. (Except the furriners, but you guys can come visit).

P.S. Bertha and Coco are for Obama, Theo (the cat) is still talking about writing in Ron Paul.

In the third pic it looks like the kitten is wearing a little dandelion pendant necklace. (P.S. I voted weeks ago!)

Meg, seems you're a bit lopsided in the quotes you used. I hope that you voted for someone that will change things instead of doing what bush has done.

Robert
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 04:19 PM

OMG KITTENZ!!! I honestly squealed with joy when the page loaded. :-)

Jennifer
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 04:28 PM

I voted today!! Yay!

Rooanne
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 04:31 PM

I can haz wafflez?

RosiePosie
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 04:31 PM

Yea, way not cool. Those comments were way lopsided. You've got mostly young (under 30)people reading your blog, and you know they sure as heck aren't voting for McMoron. I seriously cannot believe you did that. I've been following for literally years - and i used to think you were cool.

[Oh fer cryin. Read ALL of the text in the post, please. This is not endorsement, this is entertainment. - Ed.]

Yay Rooanne!

and the first jerk award of this post goes to lauren (with an honorable mention to robert who clearly though this site was cuteolbermann.com)

I very much appreciated the kitten chasers in this post.

Jennifer
 |  Oct 29, 2008 at 04:42 PM

My lord, McCain makes me nauseous. Hooray for kittens!
