Like most of us, the characters of The Cattle Raid of Cooley don’t have a vote in tonight’s US Presidential election, being as how they live in Ireland two thousand years ago and all. But, inspired by this blog post by Rick Marshall, I decided to do a quick straw poll.
Medb is tempted to vote McCain on PUMA grounds (she was backing Hillary), but ultimately thinks Obama and Biden would be more likely to do what she tells them.
Fergus, as an old soldier, is McCain all the way. Plus, that Palin woman has a lovely arse on her.
Cú Chulainn’s only sixteen, so he doesn’t have a vote, and doesn’t much care either way. Láeg isn’t sure about Obama – too smooth by half – but definitely thinks McCain’s an eejit. He’ll probably go for Nader, or not bother.
Lug Longhand, god of youth and glory, is quite taken by Obama’s charisma.
The Morrígan, goddess of carnage, hasn’t stopped singing “Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran” since she heard McCain on the radio that time.
