power of the swing vote

Maybe you've heard, but there's an election going on. Yeah, it's on the news and stuff. I'm asking you all, as friends and readers of this website, to vote. Vote your ass off. Need more convincing? My friends at Projekt NewSpeak have created this entertaining and informative short documentary on the importance of the Asian American vote: Power of the Swing Vote.

The piece features folks like Bobby Lee, Tia Carrere, Russell Peters, Jabbawockeez, Kaba Modern, Carrie Ann Inaba, Cheryl Burke, B.D. Wong, Rex Lee, Michelle Krusiec, Congressman Mike Honda, and more.

We've all heard that Asian Americans are among the least likely to vote. That sucks. That sucks. But as this video illustrates, Asian Americans can make a significant impact on a political race... just look at the now-infamous "macaca" incident. We helped take that racist fool George Allen down! And baby, we can do it again.
