Tuesday



Author/Illustrator: David Wiesner

That's right, it's Tuesday. But not just any Tuesday... it's SUPER TUESDAY. And Wiesner's masterpiece, which features a night of flying frogs, is oddly appropriate on this day. How so? Not just because the title is Tuesday, but because Wiesner's surrealist vision asks us to challenge the boundaries of what we believe is possible. And isn't that kind of the point of this whole process? It's Tuesday, a chance to imagine the world as you would like to see it and to cast your vote accordingly.

For a minute, allow yourself to imagine a world that has finally woken from the nightmare that is the Bush Administration and consider where we go from here. So, if you are in one of the 24 states participating in this political royal rumble, determine which candidate's policies, vision, and leadership speaks to you and most closely matches your hopes and dreams for this country... and then whether by car, bike, foot, or lily pad, get yourself to the polls and cast your vote.

Because it's Tuesday, and anything is possible.

I love this book -- and it still gives me such a huge laugh that it's just titled, "Tuesday." I mean, okay...? Tuesday. Aside from the whole Pink Elephants in Dumbo it's got to be the most surreal single day in children's fiction. Great choice for politics!

I was wondering why Kermit got 39% of the Democratic delegates, when he was only polling around 10-12%...

Oh man, I wish I had seen this post on Super Tuesday. It would have made all my CNN watching so much more enjoyable.
