Cosmopolitan, clearly NOT content to keep their #CosmoVotes initiative squarely within the two-dimensional realm, has expanded their Get Out the Vote campaign to include a party bus full of shirtless male models who, because there is clearly nothing less insulting to the female intelligence, will escort North Carolina’s women voters to the polls.
Women’s magazine Cosmopolitan is sending a “party bus” with models to North Carolina State University next week to take students to and from the polls on Election Day.
The bus is part of a contest won by the university, and the latest in Cosmo’s foray into political coverage. This year, the magazine endorsed candidates in 10 races — all Democrats — based on their views on abortion, contraception, and equal pay.
“On Election Day, a bus decked out with snacks, swag, and models (hi, this is Cosmo) will roll up to North Carolina State University, the winner of Cosmopolitan.com’s first-ever party bus contest,” the magazine said. “The bus will shuttle students back and forth to a nearby polling location so students can vote.”
As an aside, does a news story ever just make you want to give up on humanity?
Apparently, there was a contest among college co-eds, and a North Carolina State University student who should be spending more time studying and less time trying to win magazine contests, won the opportunity to have the most depressing get out the vote effort in history roll up to their student union. If you like male strippers and candy, ladies, have we got a deal for you! And, just in case you were wondering, we’ll totally respect you in the morning. Just don’t expect breakfast.
