The Gowanus Pathmark was the location for Saturday afternoon’s voter registration drive. The Faux Slope Obama folks were in effect, prepared to coax prospective voters with donuts and Obamafied “LIVE STRONG” bracelets from the Audacity08 people. We basically had it going on. One cranky/generous grocery shopper even bought us more donuts and offered me a ride on his scooter.

There were plenty of us volunteering, perhaps too many for one location, so Robert cleverly walked over to Lowe’s and asked if we could register people in front of their store. The management of Lowe’s wasn’t interested in expanding the democratic process, so he pawned Robert off with what seemed to be some crappy corporate 1-800 number. But it wasn’t. The recording that answered was a sexy woman robot voice promising “hung-ass.” Now that was funny! I volunteer for laughs.
