An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Looking for a little insurance if your guy loses the presidential election? JetBlue has you covered, offering a chance for a free flight out of the country if Nov. 6 doesn’t go your way.
Dubbed “Election Protection,” the airline announced Wednesday it will give away 1,006 round-trip flights — that’s 2012 seats — to customers whose candidate loses next month.
“We’ve all heard it said before: if my candidate does not win, I’m leaving the country,” Marty St. George, JetBlue senior vice president marketing and commercial strategy, said in a statement. “Fun is one of our five founding values, and in this spirit we decided to give people a chance to recover from the political noise and follow through on their claim to skip town if their candidate comes up short.”
Does anyone remember how many ‘celebrities’ said they were going to leave if Bush won? Well, he did, and I’ll be darned if they aren’t still here, making noise, and being dipwads. One can only hope that they’ll keep their word this time, and head off to whichever commie country they choose. Permanently!
Travelers who visit jetblueelectionprotection.com simply identify their political party and choose their desired international destination, including Mexico, Aruba, Costa Rica or Jamaica. Then, if their candidate loses, they’ll be entered for a chance to win a (temporary) escape.
As of Wednesday afternoon, Democrats had beaten Republicans in sign-ups, 62 percent to 38 percent. The Bahamas appeared to be the top getaway choice for Republicans, while Costa Rica barely edged out the Turks and Caicos Islands for Democrats.
I wonder if those percentages are any indication that the dims are expecting their clown to lose? One can only hope! But on the serious side….where is there to go? This was the last great hope for freedom from oppression, and look were we are now….. stuck with an oppressive regime, although not as oppressive as it will be if Obama gets his way.
