The Pleasures of Propaganda Loudspeaker Vans.

Election time brings out the mini-vans decked out with insanely loud loudspeakers that roam the streets, announcing which political candidate you should vote for. It seems like as election time draws near, each candidate has a van or 2 running around town with people screaming almost incoherently at the top of their lungs. Heather and I were lucky enough to have a candidates headquarters right across from our apartment, so we got to hear the blasting rhetoric virtually every morning as the vans set off for their daily run. We thought it was over with the election going off early in the week but hey there was more. Sunday, at 7am we awoke to the sounds of a van parked at a victory rally in the parking lot across the street, and another day filled with even more vans driving around town thanking us for not killing their crazy asses during the pre-election campaign. We enjoyed it so much this morning, they blessed us with a repeat performance at 6pm when we were eating dinner. Good times!
