Now most of you know that Uncle Fossill lives up in Podunk Tennessee,and most of you also know that Podunk is a very insular community and a bit backwards by our more "advanced" standards,but they do go out to vote occassionaly and Uncle Fossill isno exception.But things have changed in Podunk since Uncle Fossill last voted and Uncle Fossill wa a bit surprized when the young man at the polls asked him if he had a picture ID.EYE DEE?Said Uncle Fossill,why caint yew see me a standin richeer in front of yew? Yes said the young man,but I need to see your driving license to see if you are registered! Rgistered fer whut?said Uncle Fossill.Oh never mind said the young man,just tell me if you are a democrat or a republican then.Why, said Uncle Fossill,I aint neither of them thangs,ima Amercan!Ok,said the young man,which party are you voting for?Wal,said Uncle Fossill,ima votin fer tha party that has the best music and the best moonshine!Hey Jake! shouted the young man,We got another one of those secret service guys out here trying to sneak in.
