By now, you shouldn't, but just in case, GOOD issue 013 offers up a lot of reasons why you should vote. There is one we missed--mostly because it wasn't on anyone's radar until McCain and Obama put it there last night. There were four men involved in the third and final presidential debate: John McCain, Barack Obama, Bob Schieffer, and Joe, the plumber.Before you get all freaked out about the election hinging on one man's vote--like some cynical twist of karmic fate that's turned the well being of our country into the latest in a string of unwatchable Kevin Costner movies--we'll give you reason 1,566 to vote: You are Joe, the plumber.Well, figuratively speaking, you are Joe. Literally, Joe's the undecided voter profiled in this AP article and in the accompanying interview. (You're probably not in his tax bracket.) So vote because your voice is just as important as Joe's or to cancel out his vote or for one of the other 1,565 reasons we've already given you.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUvwKVvp3-oUpdate: Okay, maybe you're not Joe, the plumber. Apparently, he isn't a) a plumber or b) a tax-paying citizen. Also, according to MSNBC's Chris Matthews, he went "to bed last night, a McCain supporter."
