Election Night '72

I hope all of the American readers here have either voted or plan to go vote today.

Here's something topical... news footage from election night on 1972 Washington DC's CBS affiliate station WTOP. Never mind Nixon's victory, check out the super stylized typography and killer set designs.



This one is pretty scuzzy, but still worth watching:

The guy standing on the riser in that local news section sounded a lot like Col. Henry Blake. It made me kinda giggle just listening to him.

Too bad the wrong presidential candidate won last night.

The wrong candidate? Who was supposed to win? The lying, Bush-hugging, healthcare-eliminating, war-mongering, oil company-appeasing racist with a year left to live and would then pass all authorities off to the wolf-destroying, women's rights-ignoring non-reader who doesn't know which countries are involved in NAFTA and is married to the guy who hates America so much that he wants his homestate removed from it? Take that shit to michellebachmann.blogspot.com
