Politicians Are Out Looking For Votes– Don’t Miss Your Chance!!
Election Day is fast approaching here in the USA (it’s next Tuesday, November 4th).
It will be a mid-term election, coming at the halfway point of the U.S. president’s 4-year term.
Here in New Hampshire we like to pretend that election campaigns are still conducted like they were 50 years ago: smiling volunteers knock on doors and hand out flyers, candidates mingle with real people, shaking hands and kissing babies.
In truth, today’s campaigns are conducted through television advertising: candidates
and the special interest groups that have an ideological or financial stake in their election spend millions of dollars on ads that trash the candidate’s opponent.
That said, candidates still make the rounds here, especially in the closing days of the campaign. Mostly it’s a chance to be seen smiling and shaking hands on the six o’clock news.
So it’s still possible to encounter a real, live political candidate in 2014. Here we see how Busker, everyone’s favorite street musician, deals with that situation.

Have you ever attended a political campaign rally to support a candidate?
Have you ever shaken hands with a famous politician? Who was it?
Have you ever zapped someone with a concealed joy buzzer? Has anyone ever actually seen a joy buzzer??
