Barack Obama Finger PuppetJohn McCain Finger Puppet

Even though we have early voting in the state of Texas, I still wanted to vote on Tuesday even though I did not learn the historical reasons why elections take place on the first Tuesday in November until this morning.  As it turns out in what was once largely rural and Agricultural America, November was a good time because the major work of planting and harvesting was over and Tuesday would give people time to travel to and from the polls without having to travel on the Sabbath day (see Why we vote on Tuesday ).

Pattern for the adorable candidates above, by the way, is free from Lionbrand.  If I didn't already have so many other projects in my queue I'd be sorely tempted to make some.
