Election day is November 6th. My birthday is November 5th. I know you are wondering 'what is Leah's birthday wish' (and thanks so much for wondering about that, I really appreciate it). Well I'll tell ya what would make me happier than an ice cream cake party (and that is saying a lot) is if everyone goes out on November 6th and VOTES!

I was talking to a guy about the election this past week after a show. Specifically I was discussing my fears that a Romney/Ryan win would mean a huge step backwards for binders and binders of women. He basically said Well why should I care about that enough to vote?! And I totally get that. But I would hope that he cares enough because women are human-beings. The fact that people even get to vote about our bodies is ridiculous, let alone make choices for us. I think Chris Rock said it best: "I wouldn't want a bunch of women voting on my balls."
